I Cry All The Time

This submission is from Robin, who blogs at Invisible Autistic.

POINT: I cry all the time. I cry at sad scenes. I cry when someone’s yelling at me. I cry when I feel stressed. I cry when I’m happy. I cry when I’m frustrated. I cry when I’m excited. I have all kinds of crying.

COUNTERPOINT: Crying gets you nowhere.

ACTUAL POINT: Depends on the crying. At some point, crying does get you nowhere, especially if it starts to interfere with your life, you actually harm yourself as a result of it, and you can’t do anything else. BUT for me, crying has been cathartic and oddly, a way to process negative information. It was one way for me to focus on something else (the crying itself) other than what I’m crying about. I may look like I’m crying and feeling horrible, but somehow my brain’s got it worked out where I can think about how to solve my problem and cry at the same time. Over time, it’s helped me to develop other ways to cope where I don’t have to cry every single time.

CONCLUSION: Crying isn’t all bad!
