Re: My emotions are building up inside of me and I can't cope - December 23rd 2015, 01:22 PM

Hey I don't know if this will help, but I couldn't cry until recently either. It wasn't until I was completely wrecked by everything happening around me and I became exhausted trying to hold it all together, that I managed to cry. And it definitely helped release the stress.

That said, I definitely don't think crying is the only way to deal with emotions and I don't think you need to worry too much about not being able to cry. Everyone deals with things differently and just because you don't cry doesn't mean that is a 'problem' that necessarily needs a solution. However, if that's not how you release emotions, it's good to experiment to find a way that helps you in tough situations.

To build on the alternatives already suggested, I've found screaming into a pillow helps, as does finding creative ways to explore or express how you feel.

I hope that helped
