This is what I wore today.
This week has felt a bit gloomy. Maybe it’s the clouds. Maybe it’s this melancholy song by Lost Under Heaven (LUH) that I can’t seem to stop listening to.
Then today it rained as I walked to the subway and I felt surprisingly elated by this. My coat was speckled with rain drops and this got me wondering about tears. Is there such a thing as crying it out? Does that actually help people? In my own experience, I think yes it does. There’s a release, a process that gets unstuck when tears come out. It’s something that can feel good if ya just let go and let it happen. Back when I was in therapy during residency, crying became a routine part of my week. And now it happens less often. Maybe once or twice a month. I always feel transformed in some way after I cry.
What about you? How often do you cry? And how does it feel afterwards?
