I have anxiety and have rarely cried in my life. I guess part of the reason why I have anxiety is that I've always suppressed my emotions and have sucked up one stressor after the other without an emotional release. I've been doing some research on this matter and apparently on average people cry like twice a month at the least. The last time I cried was 2 years ago when a loved one passed. I don't know why I hardly cry, guess I've always been taught to just man up and avoid showing weakness, but from what I can find online it seems to be helpful in releasing built tension, anxiety and stress hormones. So should I try to cry more often, like when anxiety hits? How often do you guys cry? And does it feel like a relief when you do? Perhaps it's a bit of a taboo subject. Grown men don't like showing their feelings but we don't have emotional brains for nothing. I guess all of the unprocessed feelings can build up and cause mental disorders eventually.
