It’s ok to cry. Allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling. Just know that these feelings shall pass and a brighter day is on the horizon.

Yea I can relate. I’ve held on to tears from when I was 13 years old. When I got older I felt embarrassed for being so emotional. It was even worse when alcohol was involved lol. I say that to say crying is healing. I used to cry for weeks at a time when I surrendered my feelings to something bigger than what I was feeling. The best choice I made in my life to date. I still have my moments I just don’t become the moment anymore. You are stronger than whatever you are feeling right now! I hope that you can cry comfortably. Please take your time and don’t beat yourself. Remember you are your own beat friend!!

Oh thank you again appreciate that- & I really hope you well on your continued growth& healthy healing!! 💞🌻

It really is ok to cry. If in public, maybe try to keep it to a quiet slow rolling tears, not heavy sobbing. Hopefully that will draw less attention. If someone asks if you're okay, try saying "I just need to let some stress out." I found if I let a few tears fall, I can often get by without anyone noticing, and it really does help me feel a little better. Focus on what is going right in your life at the moment. If you feel panicky or anxious, it can help to close your eyes and take some deep slow breaths. This calms the body and mind at least for a moment. Sometimes, when I'm where I can, I'll watch a sad movie to help me have a good cry. Tears are cleansing and release pent up emotions. Prayers for peace and strength.

Thank you soo much this was very nice helpful tips to look at ☺️💞

Sometimes I leave the house and go to the corner of a nearby park to cry alone. I could stay there in that spot for days.
