Yea everyone has these days I think its normal… But how you “let it out” should not be hurting anyone or anything.

Yeah, actually it happens to me quite often. I bottle everything to an impossible degree and then it explodes when I want it to the least.

I used to have to do that all the time, but not recently, thank god. Nothing wrong with it. It feels good and you just have to do it sometimes.

Yep, I need to have a good cry at the moment, but I can’t seem to let it all out, or won’t let it all out rather. Hopefully soon.
@jjmah I hope it’s helped and you’re feeling a little lighter.

I’ve had a lot of these days the past 7 months. I don’t hold things in at all. I always let myself cry when I feel I need it.

If you have a lot of emotions built up inside of you that you want to come out in the form of crying then why not watch one of these movies:

“The Seventh Sign” : In 1988, Demi Moore played a very intriguing role of a pregnant woman who would have to make a decision that could save the world as the apocalypse was outlined by seven significant signs. Her baby’s life or her own life….which would you choose? During the dramatic delivery and birth of Demi’s dead baby, she made the ultimate sacrifice.

“Beaches” : Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey star in this 1988 film about two girls who share a turbulent yet long lasting bond of friendship. When Bette finds out that her best friend is dying, she stays by her side until the final hour.

“Imitation of Life”: 1959 remake of the original 1934 movie starring Lana Turner as a starlet raising her daughter alone.
Philadelphia is a great movie which tells the story of a once highly respected attorney in an affluent law firm who is wrongfully fired because his partners find out that he has AIDS.

Message in a Bottle Kevin Costner and Robin Wright Penn. Kevin realizes that he is finally ready to love again but is tragically killed in his boat while valiantly helping to save other boaters caught in a terrible storm.

“My Girl” : Anna Chlumsky and Macaulay Culkin star as a pair of unlikely friends in this 1991 comedy/drama. Anna is a confused little hypochondriac whose mother is dead and whose father is an undertaker.

Make sure that you have plenty of tissue paper at hand. Also watch these movies: “A Time to Kill” , “The Last Castle” , “The Piano” , “The Postman Always Rings Twice”.

Lmao @philosopher. Don’t even know what to make of that.

I’ve totally had these days (or nights). Be it a weeknight during high school when I couldn’t figure out my math homework and was lonely and depressed, or nights at college I was so stressed and/or emotionally distraught I had to climb in bed with my roommate. It happens.

It’s no good if you hold it back. You just feel worse. I remember trying to restrain myself in front of my roommate, but once she made me start talking, the floodgates opened. I needed the release.

Enjoy your youth because once you have children you will understand. Especially if you have an autistic child as I do.
On autismsupportnetwork people understand.
I think we all cry because people are too self absorbed or ignorant to comprehend us.Our society is not empathic.

I’m having one of those days right now. I can’t cry, though. Boys don’t cry. Yeah, right!

DarlingRhadamanthus's avatar

Yes, yes, yes….:)

The other night, I saw a two hankie movie called “Nights in Rodanthe”. It had gotten mixed reviews (I found out later) and was probably a bit too predictable. But the “boo-hoo” factor for me was off the charts. It is also based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks.

So, I recommend this movie when you really want to have a good cry.

And you know what else? Diane Lane is an extraordinary actress. Why isn’t she in more films? You know why? This is what I think….she looks her age. It was refreshing to see a face that expressed emotion and wasn’t botoxed…still so beautiful, too. She has a vulnerability that is so exquisite.

Oh, there is the title song….“In Rodanthe” by Emmylou Harris….be still my beating heart. Unbelievably beautiful.

Forget the hankies….get a box of Kleenex.

I have and I recommend it!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah, and I’m good at just letting it all out, too. I think I’ll do just that when we finish with the remodeling from hell. We not only have vinyl to lay today, but carpet tomorrow, and then I getta paint walls!! It’s been a HELL of a week. Haven’t had a washer, dryer or stove for a week. Sucks.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

Oh sure, every few months for years ever since my life fell apart. I feel like I sweep it into little piles which get blown around just to be swept up again. I get to feeling so worn out, like today. All we can do is wait for the blah feeling to pass and then go after what we want, again. :)

AmWiser's avatar

Yessss! My pity party, I have those days (few and far between), and when I do I let it all hang out…me, a bottle of wine, some tissue and those sad songs don’t forget the music.

mrentropy's avatar

You know, I haven’t. In a very long time. I stop myself.

Only a few in my long lifetime.

Once in a blue moon, and then I chastise myself for being such a cry baby and then have a good laugh. I usually then realize how cleansing it was and how all the stuff I let stress me out wasn’t really worth the trouble. But I’m greatful when it does happen. I instantly go back to being my happy self after laughing at myself for a while. I suck at staying down for too long.

WiseOldUnicorn's avatar

It happens, yeah. Usually when I’ve had a lot going on and I’m stressed beyond belief…and then I feel a lot better once I’ve had a good, long cry.

jazmina88's avatar

This week I’m cryin alot….. I<3 mags.

But went to Indy and wore myself out tonite.
one a few tears. I love drum corps.

augustlan's avatar

Absolutely. Usually it comes after days (or weeks) of fighting it, and then I finally give in and have a good ol’ wallow. I give myself permission to throw a full on pity party for the day, and let it all hang out. It’s a good thing, as long as you pick yourself up the next day and keep on going. Hugs to you, my friend.
