It's okay to cry

Hidden

Sometimes a good cry makes me feel better...it releases built up hurt, anxiety, stress IMO or even feelings of loneliness like I am feeling right now. I let out a good cry... wipe my tears and tell myself things will get better...This too shall pass. I also give thanks to God... for my struggles, the good and bad and for my strength. To keep going on and fight another day. To not let my disorders and issues take over and prevent me from living the best life I can...even if it's alone without a partner. I give thanks for the little things I have like a roof over my head, food to eat, a fexible part-time job and an amazing boss who understands my struggles the family I have in my life even if we fight alot and especially most important my sons. Just venting a little so thank y'all for being here.... Take care everyone and have a good weekend ❤️

Hi SouthTexan84, Thank you for sharing your feelings. I do exactly the same thing when things tend to get overwhelming for me. Crying is a good stress releaser as well as cleanser. Like you, I then think about all the things I do have in my life that keep me safe and nourished.

It's nice to be able to share both good and bad feelings. We're never alone in how we feel. Wishing you peace and calm . :) xx

Thank you so much❣️☺️

Yes, dear SouthTexan84, crying is good sometimes...when i feel very anxious i can not cry, and if i finally can cry it means anxiety lets go...

you said beautiful words about appreciating little things, and i have a lot to be thankful for. I also have to remember all those things to be grateful for, you reminded me of that. thank you!

If you can still cry you are not empty inside, there is a part of you that is still alive. Cherish your emotions they are a sign of a healthy mind. There is a darker place, one where you wish to feel anything even if its pain.

Thank you lovely 😊🌹

A very good point! Agree totally with a good cry. Sometimes, afterwards it just helps you to feel better! I’ve had many struggles also, even loneliness. Although I know in my heart that I’m never alone. It takes a bit of faith to overcome feelings. Letting go & yes, being thankful for all we have is a tremendous help. Also seeing how we can reach out to others and help them. Everyone needs to know they are loved & valued! LHP❤️🤗🙏 for you & all the hurting

Yes you are so right, faith is really the only thing that gets me through my really tough lonely struggling days. I ferl so alone but then I know that get is there. He loves me and knows my life struggles and then I get motivation and peace that only he can provide me when nothing else can. Thank you so much for your reply. Take care my friend 🙏😊🌹❤

SoTex84. You have a great, positive attitude! Keep it up and keep looking up!!

I have 2 daughters that I’m also very thankful for and family that I live with, a great job & so much more! Sometimes I get caught up in what I don’t have that it seems like the blessings aren’t there. But they are. We just have to start counting and they add right up😀
