Crying (P. 70)
In the poem "Crying" by Galway Kinnell, the author talks about how crying can be a way to let your worries fall away. Don't cry a little bit but just let it all come out. In todays society many people are told to bottle up their feelings, have you ever hid your feelings out of embarrassment and regretted it later? If not how do you release stress to get back to your happy, smiling self?

I remember an example of not crying when I definitely could have, but it wasn't out of embarassment. Now, this might sound like the worst story ever, but here it goes. We let our children pick out a dog to adopt for Christmas two years ago and they were VERY excited to bring it home a few days later. We prepared by buying a bowl, picking out a name, etc. The day before we were to pick it up, we got a call from the Humane Society that our puppy had died over night. I had to tell my children and in order to keep them calmer I didn't cry myself. I could have though, since they my calm did little to stop them from crying. By the way, we now have another dog, and everything is great!

Crying is such an obvious release of emotion that we are suddenly overtaken with a spontaneous burst of a personal watermain. Often, I have hid my tears when in public places. Sometimes watching plays or movies or beautiful performances can move me to cry, however the setting is public and I want to contain my private reveries. Sometimes crying is a great relief, and it can be very cathartic. It takes a lot of concentration to hold in tears during moments of grief, anger or sadness. I will surrender to shedding tears if I feel safe enough to do so.

There's been many times in my life that I've hid my feelings out of embarrassment and regretted it later. I do tend to keep my feelings bottled up for the same reasons I wear a mask, so I don't get asked questions, but there are times where I do need a good cry, and sometimes for no reason at all. As long as I can get a good cry out every once and a while, I'm pretty content, and can be happy most of the time.

I consider myself content with life most of the time and also lucky to not have had an overload of traumatic events happen in my life thus far. Even so, there has definitely been times when I've held my tears in but also times when I have let them out and perhaps wished I would have held them in. Like Mary, as long as I can let a good cry out every once in a while, I am content!

oh i love a good cry.
sometimes i can cry. verrryy easily.
sometimes i cant. and i feel like a horrible person, because i should be crying. it seems to come at the wrong time. all the time. i definitly hold in my emotions in public settings, although sometimes i just can help it and have to pretend my contact is bothering me or else make a run to the bathroom. i guess im just a bad timer of tears.

I can't think of a specific situation where I hid my feelings but I know that I often wait till I am behind closed doors before I let my tears roll down my face. Usually to release stress I talk to my best friend, ask someone for a hug, go for a long run, write my thoughts down on paper, or simply have a good cry. Sometimes nothing helps except crying!

When I feel like I am about to cry, I try to hold it back and pretend to be happy until I can be alone (or with people I trust) then I let it out. Talking about my problems is what gets me back to being happy again.

Crying is something we all need to do. Usually it isn't that I DON'T cry and feel embarassed, it is that I DO cry and feel embaressed because it is at the wrong place or it is over something trivial.

I've hidden my emotions as a way to look more self confident than I was feeling at the time. There have been times when I didn't want people to know how I was feeling, whether I was hurt, embarrassed, sad... whatever. Sometimes I feel better for having kept those emotions back because I feel like I still have some dignity and privacy in the situation. Other times, I've wished that I had let the other person see how I was feeling. I mean, if you don't tell a person how you're feeling, how will they know not to act that way the next time?

Crying can be a way to build confidence. Letting out all your emotions when crying, it will make you feel better and confident. Keeping those emotions is hard. It feels like it always want to burst.
Build confidence by crying it out. You'll be more confident if you feel better about yourself. Having the confidence may even let you express your emotions to the person who caused you all that.

It really helps to cry. There are some emotions that we cannot release by words alone and to cry it out is the best way. It releases anger, frustrations, hatred, etc. You would then feel better and its like you just unloaded a heavy burden in your heart.
Communication doesn't only mean doing it with words. Crying is like communicating also. It's how you communicate your emotions. It helps you release what's in your heart or mind.

Crying is really healthy. It helps you release your negative feelings and be left with the positive one. It is important that you feel positive all the time to help you remain strong amidst your trials in life.

Hi. I'm a guy and guys don't cry. Well not much. But you know, there are movies that I find myself really getting choked up in and trying not to let anyone see. There are not many other things except the loss of friends and family that do it for me.
I really had a tough time losing my dad 10 years ago. My brother and I were to speak at his funeral. In the 4 days leading up to it, I cried with a lot of friends and family. Somehow that gave me a real peace and the confidence I needed to say what I needed to. It's been hard since then but that was a real turning point.
