When You Just Want to Cry

“I’m so tired of this! I just want to cry!”

I called my friend today to check in on her, make sure she was okay. And it turned out she just was completely overwhelmed. I’ve been there, said the exact same words. So, I told her to cry. It’s okay to let loose of the emotion. God gave us that mechanism for a physical release.  My friend’s been going through a LOT of challenges lately and a lot of change. It’s not easy. But she doesn’t have to be strong all the time.

While we know that God won’t give us more than we can handle, sometimes we just need to let loose of the emotion, figuratively get down on our knees, and be real in our emotion.  Then we can pick ourselves back up and, with God’s help, and that of our friends, keep on going. But sometimes we just need to let go first.

I’m pretty private in my emotions. But sometimes I just need to let it out. I use a journal book and prayer, but sometimes even I just need to lock myself in a quiet space and cry. Yeah, I’ll end up with a headache, but the next day I’m usually better focused, have a better perspective, and can move forward again.  I think that as women we sometimes expect too much from ourselves.  I know that my husband needs his down time, but for whatever reason it’s difficult for me to allow myself, or give myself that downtime.

If you are in a difficult spot right now, give yourself permission to take some time, to let out that repressed emotion, so that you can be refilled.

And in case it helps, here’s a free audio from Cindy Rushton that may encourage you.

Whether you listen to the chat from Cindy or not, know that you are not alone and things always work out. Maybe not the way that we expect them to and sometimes in very strange ways, but they always do work out.
