Sometimes, your emotions don’t always present themselves at opportune times. It can be really annoying to burst out crying in public places. Although it is good to let your emotions happen when they happen, do not try to hold them inside. Bursting out, crying, is your bodies way of releasing pent up energy. When we are upset, the emotions build until they finally let go.
If you can go to a space and just let it out when it’s convenient for your, you will have less of a chance of it bursting out when innapropriate. Other ways to let that energy out is exercise. There needs to be some kind of physical outlet for this energy. Storing it in your body is a recipe for disaster or rather as dis-ease. That energy needs to be let out one way or another.
You could try writing a letter, that will help your mind not spin in circles. Yelling into a pillow when you are angry, or watching a sad movie if you feel you need a cry. These are ways of releasing that energy when it’s convinient for you. Going for a walk or doing some boxing at the gym, while imagining the person who upset you. This helps you to release the energy and in a way that doesn’t negatively impact the person at who the emotions are directed.
Moral to the story….DO NOT TELL YOURSELF NOT TO CRY… that is a physical reaction to the emotions you are feeling. After you have let out that energy, then try to understand where it came from and how you can better address it.
