So my close friends know I’m a crybaby and I can’t even deny it. Not necessarily crying because a movie scene was so sweet or because someone’s proposal was very romantic, (absolutely nothing wrong with these) I mean crying based on how I feel. Usually crying is my go to coping mechanism when I don’t feel great, when I’m sad, frustrated, stressed or angry, I don’t hesitate to cry it out.
There has been a lot of times something happened and I’d just find somewhere to cry it out, pray about it and move on with my day. The last time this happened, I was at school and received a sad news, was really really devastated and I legit sat down out there in public, cried my eyes out, prayed then cleaned up and went about my day because “I cannot come and go and kill myself” (if confused by this seemingly meaningless statement, don’t worry, my people understand 😉) It’s not like I like crying or it’s a weird hobby or whatever but do I shy away from it? No and do I actually feel better after I cry? Heck yes. It really gives me a clearer mind, truly is self soothing.
Now in today’s world, crying isn’t exactly the prettiest or most acceptable thing to do but note that I’m not talking about crying to manipulate others or crying to play the victim or for any other sinister purpose, I mean crying to feel.
I understand everyone has different go-to coping mechanism (however you definitely don’t want it to be something unhealthy or harmful) so I want us to converse on this, then I can pick it back up in next week’s post. So tell me
What’s your view on crying?
How often do you cry? (I mean this in the least creepy way possible, I promise)
If you’re one of those that detests it, mind sharing why?
Do you see crying as a form of weakness?
What’s your go-to coping mechanism?
Thank you for reading!
Looking forward to seeing your views, don’t forget to share. Thank you!
