Allow yourself to cry. Emotional crying can serve several biochemical purposes, such as relieving stress and releasing toxins from the body. Often times we think we are weak if we cry. But that is not the case at all. It is good to let the pain out; to experience the emotion and learn from it. It really is true that challenges we face in life will make us stronger if we work through them and not around them. Allow yourself to feel; fully. Then allow yourself to heal; completely.
