Have you ever stopped yourself from allowing yourself to have a really-really good cry? The ones that make you gasp for air even after you've stopped crying for about five minutes. Why do we do this to ourselves? Crying has meant a lot of different things for many people, but it is still dominated by the perception of being weak.
You can only cry when you're supposed to cry! When is that? Who decided the rules for proper times for crying? Was there a World committee that came together from all over the world that looked at this subject of crying as an odd thing- then they decided to impose rules on it? That's a funny way of looking at it, but most of us are still cautious about how and when to cry. I know am- I can admit to it, can you?
I have come to my own personal conclusion for myself that I actually feel stronger and more in tune with my emotions after a good cry. This may not be the same experience for everyone, but I bet that it is a high percentage of people that feel the same way! Like me, they may feel as if a huge weight of despair, guilt, hate, resentment, fear, sadness, and most of all grief that has festered in your soul has finally lifted and set you free!
On the flip side, you can also have a great cry of joy and inspiration! This example is very evident on the Oprah show, Super Soul Sunday when she is interviewing a spiritual leader and they say something that triggers tears in Oprah. She has no qualms about expressing her joy of being in the presence of such infinite positive energy and awakening. It is inspiring to the point where I get tears in my eyes as well!
I strongly believe that allowing yourself to grieve and cry sets you free to get in touch with that hurt inner boy or girl that needs to know that they are loved and safe. This makes us free to give and share more of our genuine self to others so that they too can share and to allow others to receive!
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
