In life, there are many things that can go wrong. When given stressful situations many of us act unaffected by stress and hope the bad feelings will go away. But, the problem is that such anxiety will hunt you down and just like Glen Close in "Fatal Attraction" it will not be ignored. Stress will stalk you and manifest itself in other areas of your life. For instance, when we don't get that promotion, have a fight with the significant other, or can't pay the bills we build negative feelings physiologically. That sadness collects in your psyche and emotionally weighs you down. The pressure builds and we consequently turn to our favorite calming habits. Those of us who are on a healthier track may exercise, meditate, talk to friends, get a massage, or watch a movie to dissipate the negativity. Some of us however, turn to the dark side. We may relieve anxiety by grabbing a pint of Ben and Jerry's on the way home, have a few drinks at the bar, take illegal drugs, or engage in risky sexual behavior. These bad habits are very dangerous for the long term. One often feels worse because poor choices create physical problems, such as weight gain and enhance psychological conditions, such as guilt and shame. It is my belief that the best way to feel happier when stressed is simply to cry. Crying releases tension and actually honors your feelings. So many of us want to feel in control or our feelings, but that is not realistic. We are in fact human beings. Crying is your body's way of saying it needs a break. After a good cry, you will see that you feel spiritually lighter and more capable of making rational and healthier choices. Namaste.
