How did you say the title?


I think it’s the little tears in our heart that cause the tears in our eyes. Even tears of joy are because of love and we all know that love hurts. Love can tear us in two sometimes. 

I’ve been pretty low for a while now, just not in a great place mentally. 

There has been so much going on in my life in such a short period of time and I’m having trouble keeping up with the pace.

I feel like I’ve been torn in a million pieces, my heart shattered and scattered to the four winds.

We all say things like ‘I can’t wait for things to return to normal’ but we all know that this is the new normal. 

So I’m just hanging in here trying to hold on as best I can. 

I’m hoping my tears will subside soon. It’s not like me to cry and I’ve done my share lately. 

I don’t know why. I think I’m tearing myself up and wearing myself out. All I have left are tears to shed. 

And maybe the tears I cry are cleansing; maybe holding on to the pain I’ve been carrying has finally caught up with me and it’s time for a little relief. 

Let me patch up the tear in my heart and release the tears so I can heal.

  1. Are you supposed to feel cleansed after you finish letting the tears out? I feel like I’m being run over with a truck when I start to let go and cry so I stop. That feeling is so overpowering and painful.


    1. I have never been one to cry. I remember I didn’t cry when my mom died; it was years later and I awoke to tears streaming down my face. It has been very recently that I have been able to cry a little and it is painful. I think that stopping the tears isn’t helping…I do think you would feel better if you could get it all out. It isn’t easy, by no means, but I don’t think holding on to the pain inside is doing you any favors. You’re not allowing good to come to you because you’re stuck holding onto whatever it is.
      In answer to your question, yes, I think crying is a way of cleansing.
