I work with a lot of people who share with me that they feel like they could cry forever if they let themselves. There is a fear that if they open the floodgates, they will keep flowing endlessly, to the point of making it difficult to function.
In my many years of experience, the tears always find a place to pause; and if that takes 2 weeks, 2 hours, or two months, then that is what your body & soul truly needs. I emphasize needs, because your body knows what it needs whether your thoughts agree or not. Especially when we are talking about a mind / body relationship that isn’t fully integrated and healthy.
And here is a crucial bit of priceless information about what tears are made of:
- Protiens (Including Stress Hormones like cortisol!)
The tears you cry, when you feel deep emotion have a high concentration of stress hormones in them -that the body needs to get rid of.
Knowing this, doesn’t it make you want to cry as much as your beautiful eyes want? I makes me want to. We have enough things going on in our daily lives that the more stress we can release the better! ❤️
