Sometimes we cry

Crying is not a sign of weakness, yet many of us have been taught that it is. We've been told that crying demonstrates to those who have hurt us (and to ourselves) that we are easily wounded and in some cases may provoke further emotional torture at the hands of our tormentors. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Crying is one of the most cathartic forms of healing the body knows how ... Read the Post

We tend to repress things that make us feel bad; anger, grief, sadness and fear clog our healthy cells causing premature aging and stress related illness. Many healers have mentioned that dis-ease is a state in the body where there is turmoil, thus causing illness.

Your feelings, emotions, and expressions thereof make other people uncomfortable.  That's it.  Essentially these three phrases above (and many more) are designed to help the person you are being vulnerable to escape your emotions which they are not willing to deal with.  It has nothing to do with you as a person.  Nothing to do with your being weak, or emotionally unstable.  No, it has to do with other people not wanting to confront their own emotions by having to deal with yours.
