Making time to cry

Jewell

Learning
Wondering if anyone makes time to cry rather than holding it
Thought of this because I’ve. been so depressed today and people think I’m too much
So I’m going to get in shower and cry
It helps
 
More power to you.

Crying makes everything WORSE for me, so finding surcease in it? Is something I find utterly delightful. Like superheroes who get magical powers from radiation, instead of melting. Rock on, with yo' bad self, and find your strength where you do.
 
MAKING time to cry? ? ? i find myself stunned at the thought of being able to schedule the event. my tears are either spontaneous or non-existent.

but yes, i take the time to cry when the need arises. it is the most cathartic release i have ever found. healing in action. i like to think of tears as a shower for the soul. sometimes i shower my soul just to cleanse the emotional pollution i encounter in our dirty world.
 
Sometimes I do, usually when my general anxiety hits a peaking point, I'm more prone to having an emotional breakdown of some kind. So when I feel its getting to the point again, sometimes I'll set aside time to sit with myself and try to process whatever fears, hurt, or stress has been running in my background - and I usually end up having a heavy cry.
I still generally dislike crying, but it does normally help me feel better after the fact.
 
This is interesting.

Sometimes I want to cry but I have what I call 'crying consitpation' , because it just doesn't come out and I can feel it inside wanting to. 😀😱🙁😬

Sometimes it comes out (the crying) before my brain has had a chance to stop it. This is a new thing. It doesn't make me feel better.

But sometimes, like lately with my dad dying, crying at points (I can count the number), has helped as I feel like I need to be a human being who cries at things.

But maybe our journeys with crying stem very much from whether crying was allowed earlier in life?

Sobbing is something I can count on one hand (practically) when I have done that.
