As a guy, I usually don't share my feeling with too many people.
And there are times where I just break down and cry when I'm alone, even if moments before I may have been happy.
I was just wondering if crying for no reason at all is okay? And if I'm not the only one to do so...
Side Note: Yes I go to a therapist already for misc. other things.

happens to me all sometimes. Even as a girl, I hardly ever cry and NEVER in front of other people. But sometimes when I'm alone, not even sad, something will just trigger it and I'll cry for no reason. And then I'm perfectly fine again. Is that the sort of thing you're talking about?
My brother does this sort of therapy called mayofasial release (spelling?), which is a sort of massage therapy that releases the mayofasial that builds up in your tissue from holding in emotion. It's an actual chemical that makes a physical change when you hold in your emotions because instinctually, when we're upset, we're supposed to cry and let it out because that releases the mayofasial chemical. It's an evolutionary adaptation. But society teaches us to hold in our emotions, which causes the buildup of mayofasial that can cause not only physical damage but emotional damage as well. That's why people with depression often have joint or back pain.
So sometimes, all you really need is a good cry. As long as you're in private, I'd say it's a good thing.0
