I Like the Feeling After You've Had a Good Cry

    Yes... and No.

    Physically, I hate the post-crying experience. I get a massive headache and congestion and feel thoroughly exhausted. But my eyes, which change colors with my mood, turn this flat out gorgeous shade of blue/green that I can only describe by comparing it to the color of the water...

    To me, it is kind of like an emotional purge. If that makes any sense.

    Good Cry

    It isn't long, I just had a good cry and now I'm at peace with myself.  I feel good and I'm recharged.

    It Always Feels Better.

    it feels good after you have cried... you just sort of feel "clean".

    I cry frequently, sometimes everyday! When i do have a cry it usually lasts a good five to ten minutes. After wards i usually feel greatly relieved and emotionally drained, i then feel exhausted and drift off to sleep.

    Sometimes a good cry is just what you need to begin again. Of course a good scream works too but something about crying that is cleansing. Just a nice stress reliever some times.
