What the hell. I was driving home from a shift earlier today and without any prompting from anywhere, anything or, anyone I started to cry. Cry with big racking sobs, cry. Can’t get your breath, cry. Physical pain, cry. Desperation, cry…and I have hardly stopped since. The price we pay for love, and loving! Whoever said ‘the best things in life are free’, can’t ever have grieved can they. It’s a bit like the old fashioned higher purchase scenario. You don’t pay a penny initially and you get all the pleasure but you pay the price in the end…with interest. God help us all…Dear me! x
In the overall assessment it’s still got to be worth it, many times over. The best things usually have the highest price to pay.
Absolutely. I’d do it all again, and some…even if I knew the cost in advance!
In the earlier days I often used to sob on my way home from work. I used to yell at the top of my voice also. Have you tried that? It gives a little relief, albeit temporary, from all the pent up emotion. Xx
Hi Kate, no I haven’t tried that. Other than the night he died. I did it then at home. I’d have knocked Mike Tyson out that night I think… No I don’t think…I would have :))) I wasn’t angry at my husband just the whole damn thing! Love to you XX
Try screaming into a cushion, I’ve done that a few times, Didn’t want the neighbours banging the wall or thinking I was being murdered. It does give relief, although usually a splitting headache afterwards, But all that emotion has to be released somehow, otherwise I think my head would blow off.
Crying is good as it relieves tension. I used to cry walking up the road to home from work because I couldn’t bear opening the front door to silence. Lots of headaches from muffling my shrieks into cushions and pillows. I was so glad when the tsunamis passed but am not adverse to a monsoon now if the mood takes me.
Good description Mel. I too still get the occasional monsoon. I think probably I always will.
I’m with you all on the tsunami, monsoon thing. Isn’t it odd how it can sneak up on you. Now I mainly have a spring shower almost daily which I just push back up to smudge my mascara but I am sure the weather forecast has a lot more surprising rain to come…
Totally with you on the screaming. I’ve done it in the car. So far the police haven’t been called… I can’t get the full effect from a cushion scream but I have used a cushion to punch…
Let it all out is my motto.
