It’s Okay To Cry

On social media, it’s a popular trend to not show your emotions. Many online posts talk about how common it is to keep your feelings bottled up until you explode.

I know trust issues are the main reason why people would rather hide their hurt and emotions than speak on them, but keeping them bottled up is not healthy.

If you rather not talk about it, crying could help.

I’m the type of person that prefers to cry because it really helps me release a lot of stress. After I get through crying, it feels like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.

This then prepares me to talk about my problem with someone like my mom or sister (people who I trust).

I feel like keeping my emotions bottled up would be so draining. I can imagine feeling heavy and not wanting to do anything but lay in bed.

We should not live this way.

Crying could be a way to let go of an issue that’s putting a strain on your life. It might not go away instantly but I’m sure it’ll help.

Yes we hate crying or seeing other people cry, but sometimes it can be seen as therapeutic.

You don’t have to be strong all the time.
