And It's Okay To Get In Touch With Our Emotions Every Now And Then

And don't apologize for our tears falling down because these are the ethylene glycol of the soul. Tears are the beautiful rainfalls when the inner storms do not seem to subside. It's okay to give ourselves the permission to shed tears to bless our heart with the gift of healing. We all need the tears to pour down. They might not run deep but that's what we need and it's just enough to lessen the resentment we feel in our lives. It always reminds us of the Jungian Analyst and Storyteller, Clarissa Pinkola Estes when she said, "Tears lift your boat off the rocks, off dry grounds, carrying it downriver to someplace new, someplace better."

Sometimes we're so drained off and empty or upset that a single unexpected word, a line from a poem or a song, or just knowing a friend is giving up on us can trigger our tears especially when a situation feel infuriatingly vague or absolutely irrepressible. Oftentimes, our conscious mind might not remember the source of our  loneliness and sorrow, but our soul always do.

They said, time will always bring comfort or relief and will ease the pain of a broken heart, it's a lie- tears always do. Because just like the deluge tears from heaven when  pouring down to the earth, the sun do not shine but after that, the rainbow will appear. And while we cry, our heart weep because the heart and soul remember when, who and why- everything. We then remember the bitter past. We cry out loud to bring us relief. And we always feel, afterwards, that we came out from a deep-sea dive- we are relieved!

Don't be ashamed to shed tears and well up. It's okay to get in touch with our emotions every now and then. It's good, healthy and wise. It's a form of articulated prayer and a special gift. Let it fall down and water the soul.

I give you some of the words from Poets and Writers to cry about...

"I see you everyday.
I know you're looking back on me,
what the hell happened to the eyes that were once full of life,
to the face that use to glow like a moon,
to the smile that never left my lips,
to the reflection that was brighter than the sun."
Rania Naim, Poet & Writer

"You say you love me
with your shot of whiskey,
You say I'm the one
with your glass of champagne,
But then you don't say a word
with your glass of coffee."
Rania Naim, Poet & Writer

"I wonder why our hearts
function the way they do.
How can you explain a mother
who takes out the food in her mouth,
to give to her starving kid?
How can you explain a beautiful girl's decision,
to leave her boyfriend and disappear
behind the wall of a convent?
How can you explain a man
who dives into a raging sea
and saves a girl from drowning?
Ah, our hearts behave the way they do.
Because they can love and love...
defy all reasons."
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

"I wish you enough love,
enough purpose,
enough brokenness,
enough wholeness,
so that your life is imperfect
and beautiful and blessed."
Marisa Donnelly, Producer & Writer

"I have asked myself why
do the shattered trees shriveled
when they have so much love to give?
Why do the dying flower wilt
when they have so much scents to give?
Why do river dry up when the rain can fill it?
Why it has to be that every beautiful
thing has to die when there are so much
reasons to live?
Yes, there are things in life that are hard to explain
and it's so difficult to live with them!"
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

"Let him forget me but grant me this:
Let me love him from the distance.
Let me dream of what could have been.
And now that he found happiness in your arms,
let me dream, too, that he is in mine."
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

"Life doesn't stop after losing someone,
but it goes on without them differently."
Nizar Qabbani, Poet & Publisher

"She is going to leave you.
Not because of the things you did,
but because of the things that
you didn't do.
She is going to leave you,
not because of the things you said,
but because of the things you never said."
Lauren Jarvis-Gibson, Writer

"He wanted me to be the sky.
I left because he couldn't see I already was."
Sade Andria Bak-Zabala, Poet & Writer

"Wherever life takes you,
I wish you nothing but happiness and love.
As for me, a day will eventually come
that I'd be able to learn
the difference between solitude and loneliness.
And I will let myself feel
beloved on earth once again."
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

"I hope you are truly happy.
I hope you find someone who can give you
everything I never could.
I hope the two of you thrive together"
Allie Score, Writer

"Thank you for the sight of undulating swing
of every day's crushing sorrow.
Because of that, I have learned the ways of love.
I will let you go...to find the happiness
you didn't find in me."
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

"I can't go on like this.
I can't stand the pain of loving you."
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

"The pain in my heart is killing me,
but it's okay. I will move on.
I will leave you to your bliss and peace.
I will move out of the insular world which has sheltered our togetherness for quite long time.
And, while you're loving her, I will make
the best of what life has given me.
Even if you don't love me anymore,
I still love myself, anyway."
Bea C. Pilotin, Writer

“Because when I say I love you,
it means you’re someone I picture
spending my future with,
until I draw my final breathe.”
Angelo Caerlang, Writer

They said tears are rivers that take you somewhere. Have a good cry and that's okay. Don't resist the release of that high-pitch cry of wrenching loneliness and grief. Come on, I'll give you a box of kleenex over a spilled milk. Don't control the tears, because there's an opposite effect on woman's look. Remember what the nineteen-century beauty Natalie Clifford Barney believed, "Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed."

      For me, I cry everywhere, anywhere especially when I need to. Even in front of my Boss when it needs to. I always do- because I knew, that even though tears may not run deep, it's just enough for the extravagance of my life!
