I Go to the Bathroom to Cry

    All The Time

    It's the only place in my house where I have to cry without someone seeing me. I won't let my daughter see me break down so I lock myself in the bathroom and let it all out. Too many times I have curled up on the shower floor and cried for what seemed like forever.

    Safe Place.

    I retreat to restrooms to cry my heart out because I don't want you to interpret this as a sign of weakness. My tears do not make me weak; if anything, they imbue me with the strength to go forward with a lighter heart and a broader perspective. My tears are a physical release...

    I Live With My Best Friends . . . .

    So when I need to cry about things they wont understand or I wont have to explain . . . I just cry in the shower . . . . I feel so much better  . . . . crying every now and then gives me comfort that I have emotions . . .

    All The Time

    I cry in the bathroom like on a daily basis.When I have panic attacks, I hide in there.My parents found me on the bathroom floor once and thought I was dying. But really all that had happened was that I had fainted, silly parents of mine.

    Sometimes

    If I'm together with other people it sometimes all gets too much.. So I go to the bathroom and cry a little.. i think it helps a bit to get the pressure down.. It's a weird habit somehow.. But the bathroom is the only place where you aren't disturbed by anybody.

    To Cry Has Survival Value

    Crying can make you healthier,reduce emotional stress.But crying in front of people can still be awkward for the person crying and people around them. When tears well up,I have a lump in my throat and I just can't talk.I always have a good cry when I am alone,in a deserted place...

    And yet I am such a cry baby. The tiniest thing makes me cry. If I hurt myself I cry, if I get told off I cry, if I miss someone I cry, if I get annoyed I cry, I hate it.
