The Release Of Crying
Many people express a strong dislike of crying, both in a public setting and in private. Often, it is a point of personal pride. However, crying isn’t a weakness it’s when overwhelmed feelings result in a natural reaction to trapped emotions. Understanding crying, as crying emotion as well as a physical release, may help you learn to release your feelings in healthy ways.
Is Crying an Emotion?
First, you should understand if crying is an emotion or if crying causes emotion. The Emotion Code guidelines consider crying to be both an emotion and an expression of trapped feelings. Overwhelmed crying will often appear as a trapped emotion, for instance, when clients force feelings down and refuse to let themselves cry to release emotion.
Additionally, the crying emotion is often involuntary and occurs as a reaction to the release of trapped emotions and the long-term side effects that they can have on the body. It usually presents itself as an emotion after releasing other trapped emotions.
How Crying Causes Emotions
The other side of the spectrum is when crying results directly in experiencing morbid feelings. If, as a client, you struggle with crying, you may find that you are overwhelmed by crying when addressing challenging issues head-on. Through tears, you allow yourself to experience the feeling caused by tough situations and release it from the body, sometimes unintentionally.
Because of the way crying allows us to confront our trapped feelings, we often view it as a weakness and, ultimately, a problematic experience. However, crying isn’t a weakness it’s when overwhelmed emotions overrun the body. These emotions often have no other acceptable way to be released and can only be stored in the muscles for so long.
By following The Emotion Code practices, you may find that you reframe the way you view crying. After releasing these feelings, clients typically find that they feel more in control of their personal and emotional well-being. Contact Christina Kim today for more information.
