Such a wuss topic for T-Men, I know.
But really... it's a part of life if you're a normal mortal, but so hard to fully "let go" when you probably really need it. I've probably cried less than 5 times in the last 10 years.
Sometimes a scene in a film just unexpectedly kicks the stones out from under you... or maybe lyrics in a song, or the way the chord progressions bend your seemingly immalleable nerves. Or just the obvious loss of a loved one - family, friend, or pet. Or perhaps it's due to you feeling so personally broken and beaten for too long.
Or maybe it's the tears of intense elation or joy. Something uplifting that brought sobs through your bouts of laughter.
It's one of those things that feels so awful, yet so satisfying.
When I dropped my only son off at college this past September, I cried for a half hour in bed that night.
Sweet misery. Or was it miserably sweet?
When's the last time you had a good and cleansing cry, where it felt as though your tears were your own blood?
