I wish I could cry!!

Regarding crying. I personally find that not crying is my way of holding feelings in that are too painful to let out. If I do allow myself to cry I always feel a release and in some ways feel better. I don't necessarily feel good..just less awful. This happened recently. Oh…also, for me, if I hold it in too long I start snapping at other people!

@georgette12– I so agree with you. Letting out painful feelings is threatening and scary. In order for anyone to face their past we have to relive it too. Why would any of us want to do that? But think that it's the only way to heal. I healed because I started a blog and now I'm a Connect mentor and able to identify and write here. It's so very very hard. The degree of depression and how we react I think, at least for me, is the measure of the amount of harm I endured.
