Our Favorite Mentally Unhinged Women

by:   |   Jan 23 2015

There comes a time in every woman’s life when she needs to unleash her inner beast and completely unravel. Fuck looking cute, fucking saying the right things, fuck being in control. Allowing yourself to totally lose it can be a delicious bowl of Chicken Soup for the Soul (). Whether it’s an alcohol-infused meltdown, a sober fit of rage, inappropriate maniacal laughter, a raccoon-eyed crying episode, or breaking every dish in the house—I watched my mother do the latter once, it was a very powerful experience that changed me forever. Thanks Mom!—what’s important is the ability to release. The 10 ladies below helped show us what it looks like to completely lose your shit and give negative fucks in the process.

So get out there, ladies: throw some knives at a wall, let yourself hysterically cry on the subway during rush hour, and feel the pleasure of coming completely unhinged. You deserve it!
