“Will I ever stop crying?”
This is a question some of my clients ask when they first get in touch with me. Another one is: “Is it normal to cry so much?”
My answer is a clear ‘Yes’ to both questions.
When you lose someone or are going through any other challenging time in life your emotions can be in turmoil and some days you might feel like on an emotional roller-coaster. Those emotions are stressful.
Your body will find a way to release the pressure.
Crying is a good thing. It is natural. It is a release for your emotions and helps you to find your inner balance again.
Crying is not a weakness. It is a human response to sorrow, pain, anger, shame, grief, despair, sadness and even joy.
I have been brought up with the notion that it was okay to cry and show feelings in a constructive manner. My spouse on the other hand had an upbringing where tears were looked at as weakness. He still has a hard time when I tear up but I won’t stop showing my emotions. I know that it wouldn’t be healthy if I would put a lid on them.
“When will I stop crying?”
Like I said above the tears are a sign of emotions that need to be acknowledged. When you feel the tears coming, ask yourself: “What do I feel right now?”
It might be hard to have an answer in the beginning. Take your time and let the tears flow. Over time your soul and heart will open up and give you answers.
Do you need to talk to someone outside your family that understands the stream of tears? Give me a call, I am here for you.
Take good care,
