Something that isn't said enough

I gotta tell ya, work has been kicking my ass from wall to wall. When I leave for the day, I feel like I've been used up. Tired. Exhausted. When I get home, I fucking collapse.

Between the 9 PM conference call last night, the 8 AM conference call this morning... the multiple client presentations all week long, 5 projects due, another client calling randomly telling us to jump... and we can just reply how high...

I'm beat!

So I came home, and put on A&E. Knights of the South Bronx. One of those films showing the has nots kicking the ass of the has.

And I cried. I cried, and I cried.

DAMN that felt good.

We don't celebrate that enough. Sometimes that cry is all you need.

I feel energized again. Thanks emotional A&E movie!

Some of the submissives that I know don't consider it a good scene unless they burst into tears. Tears are a way to express all kinds of emotions. You're right. It's simply not celebrated that we can release our emotions in this manner. It is good to see someone appreciate the release for a change :)

I agree.

It was a very good movie.

Glad to hear that you relieved the tension of your day.

tension release no matter what form it takes, laughing, crying, screaming, is all worth it. We need to do it or we blow up. I'm glad you got it out.

In the past year or so, I've found crying to serve this great purpose - as a release. I went through a period when I was depressed when I cried at anything, and another period when I was so numb I couldn't cry at anything. But these days, I find a real pleasure in knowing how useful my tears are. I found crying during sex to be confusing at first, but then I realized it was an amazing release. Same thing with crying during a scene, which I've only done once, and it was an incredible moment for me. And even recently, we narrowly avoided a car accident, and I found my first reaction was to almost burst into tears - my tension/fear/adrenaline was looking for a way out. I think these are all good things.

Sorry about the work crush - hope it gets better soon.

Okay, so this is a little of my OCD rearing its ugly head.

It's haves, not has.

I spent so much time trying to figure out what the hell you were talking about that I couldn't get to the part about saying, "yeah, sometimes you need to have a good cry."
