Is Crying Required?

June 18, 2022

Is crying required in order to grieve?  Absolutely not. Isn’t it funny how people think that if you don’t cry, then you haven’t grieved or they associate their grieving with crying. Like we put the two together. When people see you out in public and you’re not doing the ugly cry walking around the grocery store, they say, oh, you’re doing so good. You’re so strong. It’s so insulting because we are totally grieving.  Our hearts are broken. Crying is not required in order for someone to grieve.
