People who are afraid of their emotions may find it difficult to cry and are made uncomfortable when seeing others’ cry. Crying is a natural and normal release and its purpose is just that…
Water is emotion and tears are emotions overflowing…
I have gone through periods where I was too upset and blocked to cry then when I finally did cry, I felt sooo much better…
There is no shame in crying… as there is no shame to feel any emotion. Crying is healthy…unless, it is used to manipulate and those kind of criers are usually easily spotted…
It’s our society that has us thinking something is wrong with us, if we cry and if we show emotions. Crying isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s a sign that you ‘feel’ and people who feel are emotionally healthy.
We are warned and encouraged to not show emotions, to not speak the truth, to be politically correct, to not show, or to state how we really feel, because it’s not polite, or ‘politically correct’. We are being taught to be cut off from ourselves, from our emotions…from who we really are… from our integrity from our true beings and from our souls.
Ever wonder why so many are afraid of emotions?
Deny your emotions and the feelings that arise from them and deny who you are. Not expressing your feelings that result in emotions, can cause addictions: drinking, drugs, over-eating, cheating on your loved one and explosions such as violence and abuse… if you suppress yourself too often then you may explode in an unhealthy and harmful way to yourself and others or to both…
There are healthy productive ways to express and explode and there are unhealthy ones. Too much suppression and you will either explode internally or externally… and exploding internally can cause illness that will eat you up inside….
So, if you feel like crying.. CRY! It’s good for your mental and emotional health.
All of our emotions and feelings are there for us to express them. That is why we feel them… they are a part of our emotional make-up that affects our intuition and that is God-given… It’s a gift from God to FEEL!
‘Sensitives’ are usually healthfully emotional and are in touch with their feeling, emotions and their inner and outer selves and the world around them. They, oftentimes, sense the feelings, emotions and state of being of others and to do this… they are self-aware.
‘When’ we feel, and ‘what’ we feel, tells us something about ourselves and others… when we ‘listen’ to what we feel, and ‘honor’ what we are feeling, we are being true to ourselves and therefore, more able to be true to others. If we deny and are not true to our feelings and emotions, we will become a distortion of who we are, a distortion of our God-given self. And not knowing who we are, and what we feel, we can become easily led and controlled by others and that, of course, includes dictator-like regimes.
When we are ‘told’ how to feel, what to ‘think’, and that our emotions are bad, we become confused about what is true and what is real.
Like a child who grows up around abuse or alcoholism and when they stand up and confront it are told what they ‘see’ and ‘know’ isn’t true and that their feelings and emotions are not accurate and are wrong. If this child, buys into this distortion, they themselves will become distorted.
As a society, we are being told, even ordered and mandated, to not express ourselves about what we like, or don’t like, therefore negating our individuality, our feelings, our emotions.
Some made fun of John Boehner, as his tears overflowed, when he was made Speaker of the House. His emotions were seen as ‘unacceptable’ to some who possibly can’t deal with their own emotions. Why can’t we accept others’ emotions for what they are… and that they are a ‘natural’ and ‘innately normal’ part of being a human being?
If others’ emotions make you uncomfortable, you might need to look at yourself… perhaps, it’s because you aren’t dealing with yours… that viewing others emoting might be triggering something in you that you don’t want to, or are ‘afraid’ to address.
In some families, there may be one person who expresses the emotions of all. They may be the expressive one, the feeling one, the one who tells it like it is, the one who speaks the truth that the others don’t want to hear, or even acknowledge. The one who expresses for all, while the others may be cold, uncaring and locked or blocked in denial. To be cold and uncaring is not a worthy human quality to strive for…do you think?
Interesting, that while being told to get emotions under control… that so many attend movies and other events, such as music and the theatre, in order, to have their emotions triggered. It appears as a society that this is an ‘acceptable’ way to express and release. Feeling ‘fear’ in a horror show is fine. Feeling ‘sensitive’ watching a love story is fine… just think of the tears that were shed while watching Titanic or The Notebook. So, when a movie or book triggers emotions, it’s fine and acceptable…ummm…
But when real life does, we are told to stop crying, take some medication, stiffen your upper lip, hold strong, etc. Sooo… why is this?
I am an emotional person. I honor how I feel and I express it. Some think I am too emotional and others like and enjoy it. I am truthful, can see through lies, and con as I have experienced much and grown into clear awareness and it’s my emotions that prodded me to do so. I am physically healthy, do not have addictions and am happy and peaceful most all of the time and when I am not, I express it.
We are ;sentient beings’ living on this earth and we are here to feel and express. This is how we grow and evolve emotionally and why God gave us the ability to feel, to have empathy, to care, to cry, to love, to become angry, to fear, etc. TO FEEL! And to express what we feel!
When we process through all of our emotions, we arrive back at peace… it’s when we become blocked that we become irritated and ill… which can result in mental, emotional and physical disorders on a variety of levels.
I have written a book titled, DADDY THROWS ME IN THE AIR… that I will put on my site to market in the near future… that deals with emotions and family lineage.
If you can laugh in full abandon, you can cry as such. When you can feel the pain, you can feel the joy!
So, if you feel like crying CRY! Don’t deny who you are and how you feel! Be who you are, feel what you feel and express it healthfully… when you do, you will be happier and healthier on all levels and whole in your emotional being!
Be what God put you here to be …YOU! Authentic people honor emotions in themselves and others… Agree or not? Express yourself…
