It's bad enough if you have a temper
seriously, have you ever been very emotional- perhaps cried or wept for a very long time and couldn't stop until you forced yourself, even over seemingly small things- like other than losing someone to death, like if your loved one was sick?
Do you have a method or skill to stop the water works?
well what typically works for me is that i take a few deep breaths to calm down, as panicking doesn't do anything to help the situation. once im perfectly calm, i try to think rationally about what my options are to help the person that i care about. if there's nothing that i can do personally, then i take a few more deep breaths and try my best not to think too much into it. doing little things to take my mind off of it like watching comedies and cartoons, or playing video games as a form of distraction helps, as it takes your mind off of things. anyways, i hope that helps. the important thing in any situation of crisis is that you have to first remember to calm down before assessing a situation properly, as you'll only make a situation worse if you act out of emotion rather than the benefit of thought.
edit: of course, i'm not always that cool during adversity but i try to be. lol.
women have more emotions though usually but that's good advice
Those kinds of tears can mean many things, but often they are a release of tension, and not something to be avoided. If you have the time it might be better to find a less rending form of release that is somewhat better to you, like taking a bubble bath, or lighting a candle.
A special sensitivity is a beautiful thing: you can cry for empathy, compassion, happiness. A liberating crying perhaps is the only way to stop ...
I just work at something like a tornado but will still find myself crying as I go along I hate crying too cuz I get a nasty headache and my eyes are swollen for another day or two but least cold water helps that lol
I have cried alot over the last couple of weeks, over dumb things. About four days before Christmas I was struck down with a flu, and I mean struck DOWN! My husband was struck down a couple of days prior to me, and I laughed at his weakness. So fate punished me by giving it to me ten times as hard.
The crying began on the morning of December 23rd, after about a day's worth of not being able to smoke a friggin cigarette. I looked at my husband, drawing the shallowest of breaths after the arduous task of completing a morning shower, and I bawled out "It's going to be the worse friggin' Christmas EVER!!!"
He -by then feeling much better himself- laughed at me. As it happened, I was right. In fact, I still have not even cooked Christmas dinner. I may go do that this afternoon. Maybe not.
Just cry. Go into a quiet private room and let it all out. Hell, I cry in the shower on a regular basis ever since my dad passed away. Life's not easy, stuff builds up inside of us, and personally as I approach the big Four-Oh, I just find it useful to let it all out every few months.
There's stuff you just can't change in this life, stuff you can't fix, or really do anything much about. If it's that kind of stuff that's getting you down, then let it out and move on. It's a matter of survival, really, of retaining your functionality.
I agree for the most part with everyone else. On days when I can't get out of bed and I lay there crying for hours on end, I just let it happen. Sometimes I fall asleep, sometimes someone will try to get me out, in which case I'll let them try. Once someone brought a tv in the bedroom and put movies on and stayed there with me.
When I start crying for no reason and can't stop, sometimes I can suppress it by doing something that commands my attention.
I get letting it happen and getting it all out, but if you're frequently crying for hours it can get really hard.
Lots of hugs to you.
Mostly if emotions are kept stable , that is a start. Early onset to issues. Meds,therapy, a picked routine that works for your circumstances daily.
Two routes to try:
1- If it's event-driven emotions, you may want to try reading the following:
Pulling Your Own Strings by Wayne Dwyer
Don't Sweat The Small Stuff by Richard Carlson
Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman
Social Intelligence by Daniel Goleman
go for/read about Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
search "Tapping" or "EFT" online and try it
2- More often then not, it truly is a 'chemical imbalance' causing the emotions so I recommend some major detoxification (not supported by the medical system) but here are some websites and/or names to research and follow the protocols to get the 'imbalancing chemicals' out of your brain and body. May seem overwhelming but just take it a step at a time and eventually you'll get there:
Dr. Hulda Clark (specific detoxing info)
Andrew Hall-Cutler (specific chelating/detoxing info)
Use these sites to search for more general info on same:
Dr. Mark Sircus
