my crying session



Whenver I cry, I feel happy. Labo! it’s because I am crying. Labo talaga! Hahaha.

Before, when I was 5 years younger, I don’t cry. Well, I cry but really on very very rare occasions. Even if the people around me are crying their eyes out, I still don’t cry. It’s not that I don’t have any feelings or anything. I just don’t cry. i can feel the pain, I can feel the hurt, I can feel the sadness, I feel like crying but my tears won’t flow. I get teased, I get mad, I could burst crying but I don’t! It’s like something’s stuck in my tear ducts. I really prayed to God that I would learn how to cry. then recently, I learned how to cry. it’s like whatever it was blocking my tear ducts is now gone. Now I cry even if it’s mababaw. Just a cockroach in a cab, and I’ll cry. even if I’m in a public place I cry. in the movies I watch and books that I read, I cry. I don’t complain. Coz I prayed for it. And still I don’t cry that easily. I may feel down, but I won’t cry easily. It’s like I have a dam and I would not cry until it is filled up. So it could be that I don’t cry now even if it’s really worth crying, but later you tease me a little, I would cry. it’s because my dam is already filled up and tears would overflow. So if you see me cry, don’t mind me. just hand me a tissue and I’ll be okay a little later when the dam is empty again. And it also helps being absent from work. Hehehe.

Crying is okay. We need to let out our emotions nga or it will well up in your dam. I'm happy for you that your dam is open.

Enjoy being absent from work Tin-Tin! :)

tin-tin said...

toe: thanks toe. i don't know what was covering my dam before ;p

duke: i've realized that now :)

gumagaan ang loob ko pag umiiyak ako. so i make sure sure i cry once a month-- kung walang dahilan, hanap ako nakakaiyak na movie.

keep on crying baby.

tin-tin said...

hmmm... magandang suggestion yun ha. dapat pala may stock ako ng nakakaiyak na movie. thanks! :)

Ang sakit kasi sa dibdib kapag masama ang loob mo at di ka nakakaiyak. Buti naman ok ka na ngayon.

tin-tin said...

totoo.. ang hirap. parang ang bigat..

Crying is just like eating, sleeping, laughing, and having sex. It is a self expression that we basically need to do in order to function normally. So cry and cry until all your crying is done!!!

I could easily cry when i see photos of children in dire poverty. Or a strong movie with message about love and forgiveness! And anything about dying !!!

tin-tin said...

but unlike eating, sleeping and laughing, i can't do it that easily before :)

Alternati said...

I don't cry anymore. My version of crying is swearing. It gives me the same release, pero it's offensive to passersby if they don't know the situation I'm in. hehe... Everyone needs some form of release. This is mine.

ralphT said...

crying is healthy nga daw... kasi nalilinis ang mata. haha

ganyan din ako, hindi din ako maiyak... parang ikaw... pero ang akin, until now. hehe. kasi siguro iyakin ako nung bata ako, naubos na ang mga luha ko. hahahhaa ;)

tin-tin said...

alternati: swearing? i can't do that. it's bad kse. hehehe

ralpht: di kse ako iyakin khet nung bata ako. mas iyakin ako ngayon

charles ravndal said...

I think I am same as alternati. I swear more than crying.

carey said...

It's good to cry Tin, it's just that people look at it as a sign of weakness, but actually it's just a form of emotional release. Me? when I'm so mad or angry, I could burst into tears. Somebody told me that crying actually cleanses our souls.

tin-tin said...

charles: hehehe. i guess a lot of people are like that

carey: when i'm really mad, i cry. that's how i release my anger :)

melai said...

so dahil sa umiiyak ka .... magcelebrate tayo :) .... masarap yata umiyak ano ... 5 years ago walang sarap ang buhay mo dahil hindi ka pala umiiyak :)

ralphT said...

baliktad lang siguro tayo! haha ;)

tin-tin said...

melai: sarap nga ng buhay ko 5 years ago kse di ako umiiyak. hehehe\

ralpht: mukha ngang baligtad tyo. di mo iniiyakan si princesa? hehe

melai said...

hehehehehe nuka .... ang sarap sarap ng nailalabas mo ang iyak ano ...bigat kaya sa dibdib nyan

vina said...

it feels great to cry!
but i can't say the same thing for the eyebags that come after :P

i also cry easily. sometimes, my eyes would just start brimming with tears with just the mere thought of something - or someone.

Tani said...

iyakin din ako. kahit tumatawa, iiyak din ako. :) here's a tissue for you. tara magtayo tayo ng samahan ng mga crybabies. :)

nao said...

three things that will make me cry:
1) father
2) mother
3) kids

at yung cry na may kasamang pagwawala: husband.

here's to a brand new day.. smile na. and hey, kelan ka ba magpapakilala ng tuluyan sa mansion. we're waiting for your introductory post. Happy everyday sis!

Iskoo said...

oks din na outlet ang pag-yak, ewan ko lang bakit sa mga lalaki di masyadong patok ang pag-iyak ;)

tin-tin said...

melai: totoo.. ang bigat nga sa dibdib. oo nga let's celebrate! hehehe

vina: one good thing about me when i cry, no eyebags after. you won't even know that i cried. are you crying often these days?

tani: hehehe. thanks for the tissue :)

tin-tin said...

nao: nahihiya ako magpakilala. heheeh. kaya comment lang ako sa mga posts. hehehe ;p

iskoo: oo nga. bakit nga ba?

Anonymous said...

crying reminds me that i am still alive. that i am no invincible.

...in the long run, it makes me feel that i am--beautiful.

vina said...

hehe, these days, i'm just crazier than i usually am.

have a great weekend tin! take care!

tin-tin said...

bananas: crying makes you beautiful? that's something new :)

vina: so how are you dealing now with your craziness? hope you'll have a happy weekend vina :)

To be honest, I normally do not feel like crying. However, there are some things that can bring tears to my eyes: injustice is one. There are some stories that are too sad for me to watch or tell or read to my kids and they include Oscar Wilde's, "The Happy Prince" and "The Selfish Giant"

Oddly enough, while I liked them as a kid, they did not have the deep emotional impact that they have on me now.

As well, I went through a really bad period in my life a few years back were all I wanted to do was cry. I used to just crawl into bed, hold my kids and cry. It was awful.

tin-tin said...

jhed: a good and cheap therapy :)

ghee: i'm sure more blooming ka din after you cry. coz all the tensions are gone from your body na :)

richard: i do not know those books. i'll try to find it in the bookstores here. you held your kids then cried? what did your kids say?

nao said...

Ayan, ipinakilala na kita ng pahapyaw doon ganda. It's your turn na ata.

Richard said...

I provided links to the stories in my comment (just click on them).

My kids didn't say anything, they were just 3 and 5 (and I tried to be discrete).

cruise said...

lagi palang malinis ang mga mata mo kasi nahuhugasan lagi ng mga luha.

ito patatawanin kita.... naalala mo ba yung movie nila kris aquino? yung crying ladies? hehe pwede mo pagkakitaan yan. just to cheer you up!

jef said...

You know, it's not a sign of being a sissy when you cry. I do admire those people who can cry...at least they are saving themselves from lots of useless stress.

So go on---cry hehe :-)

Hope you will have a great weekend.

tin-tin said...

nao: thank you ha! promise, this week po :)

richard: saw the links. thanks :)

tin-tin said...

cruise: napatawa mo nga ako. alam mo kung bket? kse hindi naman si kris aquino yun. si sharon cuneta yun. hehehe.

jef: thanks jef. but sometimes, since i don't cry easily until nasobrahan na, i cry on little things na tuloy :)

BW said...

Tin - it is perfectly OK to have big emotions! Is that a stolen shot?

tin-tin said...

yup, it's a stolen shot :)

BW said...

Well, you don't look chubby at all as you say you are :)
