I am going to make a change. I am going to cry more. During my depression and for as many years as I can remember before that. I was and still am a very sensitive person. I could cry at the drop of a hat. Since working through my depression and getting into the appropriate therapies I don’t cry as much. which I thought was a good thing.
Today though I realize it may be good, I don’t cry about every little thing, but, I still need to let myself cry. So I’m giving myself time every week or two to sit with any emotions I may be experiencing and see what comes of it.
I have now realized what everyone what has been telling me for a while. I always knew this and I never thought of crying this way, but people say crying is okay, even needed. And though I would nod along, I don’t know that I truly believed them. Now I can truthfully say I know what it’s like to have a cleansing cry and my aim is to incorporate this into my lifestyle to hopefully stay centred present and in the moment.
