    I'm afraid if I do my whole world will fall

    Why do I hold my tears back

    so much? I'm such a girl in my outer personality but sometimes, I hold my emotion back like a guy... Why am I afraid to cry? I don't want to be. I know crying is good for the mind, as it releases pressure, stress, anxiety, and depression.

    I feel like I could uncontrollably cry a lot of

    It's The Way It Makes Me Feel

    Whenever I cry I feel like I don’t have the right to do so. I feel like what I’m crying over is so trivial that it’s selfish for me to wallow around in self pity. I feel incredibly weak when I cry like I’ve allowed something to beat me into some kind of...
