What is rain?
Rain is the condensed water from atmospheric pressure that falls in small droplets during storms. Rain is beneficial to us in many ways as it cools the temperature and provides water.
What are tears? Tears are your body’s release valve for stress, sadness, grief, anxiety and frustration.
Rain and Tears. Both are part of a cycle. Only some people are afraid to try crying, to shed tears for they find it as a sign of weakness. But having a “good cry” can actually make you feel better physically, mentally and emotionally.
Rain aside from the flood it brings and the disasters associated with it can sometimes do something good in our lives. Rain can stop you for a while. That feeling when you look at the window pane with the rain running down? Especially when you are alone and having a good cup of coffee to warm yourself? (which I am actually doing right now) Makes you think about your life. The decisions you have made in the past, the decisions you are currently making and the decisions you are to make in the future. Rain can make you think twice. Just like last night when I have decided to go clubbing but later decided against it because it was raining. In the same way that I have stopped short of what I was to do in my life because the rain made me so emotional.
So, I have to cry. Crying made me feel so much better and usually after shedding about a bucket of tears, after feeling better… I can now look at the subject of that emotional release with a much clearer mind and disposition. (When I say I cried, It means the crying with sobbing and shoulder shaking and all.) I am in the stage of my life right now where I am torn between doing the right thing and being selfish, by doing what can make me happy. And I have decided that everything in my life right now is really in my hands. I control it. I am my own boss. Nobody tells me what to think. What to feel. What to say. What to do.
Crucify me. If you can make me happy then crucify me. I am just simply stating and acknowledging to myself what can make me happy right now. Be a little selfish sometimes. I hope you too can acknowledge to yourself the things that can make you happy and not the things other people thought can make you happy. Cry! The ability to express our emotions whether alone or in communication to others is necessary for a happy life.
Ano man ang nangyayari sa buhay mo ngayon, ulan man yan o bagyo. Kaya mo yan! Lalabas din ang araw. At madalas pagkatapos ng ulan may sisilay na magandang bahag-hari.
Dance in the rain. Cry with the rain. Be happy.
