7 Times when It's Ok to Cry ...


There are so many times when itโ€™s ok to cry.

We just do not realize that it sometimes.

Sometimes, as humans, we just need a sure fire way to release all of the pent up emotion that we have.

Crying does that for me at times.

Maybe you didnโ€™t know, but here are a few examples of times when itโ€™s ok to cry.

1. After a Death

The death of a loved one is the perfect example of any of the times when it's ok to cry.

We always tend to focus on being strong for others that we forget to allow ourselves to really feel what is going on in our own hearts.

Allow yourself to express that pain and perhaps it will all be a bit less painful tomorrow.

2. Before, during and after a Breakup

Break-ups are a life-changing decision whether it is yours or your exโ€™s.2

You feel all sorts of emotions before you make the decision and in the days and weeks to follow.

Allow yourself some time to really go through it.

If it angers you, yell for a while.

If your heart aches, cry it out.

Do whatever you have to get that emotion out;2

then walk away from it.

Nothing should hold you back from moving forward, especially not your past.

3. Workouts

Now this one is a bit unusual.

But as a dancer growing up, there were times when I would have to pull through a strenuous workout and at the end I would shed a tear or two.

It was more of an expression of joy that that hell was over rather than me being sad.

Anyway, I think any type of good and hard workout can make you shed a tear.

Donโ€™t be afraid to do so.

4. After a Loss

When you lose a job or a game, it can be hard to be positive again.

You have all of this negative energy and thoughts.

It can be hard to figure out a way to keep going when you feel like a big failure.

Do not, for one minute, think that you are too good to cry.

Let it out and push forward.

You have every right to express just how you feel.
