When You Need a Good Cry

Sometimes I just feel the need to cry. In real life I wouldn’t consider myself a crier. Sure I have my moments when I’m overwhelmed with emotion but for the most part I suck it up and keep moving forward.

With that said, every once in a while I need a good cry. It might be due to stress, child woe’s, or even Aunt Vera. When this happens I turn to my trusty movie, “When a Man Loves a Woman”.

**This is in no way a recommendation**

I am in no way suggesting that you queue it up in your Netflix. It’s gritty and heavy.

However, this movie always makes me cry. The year the movie came out is an important one in my life and brings back many memories. It’s also about a mother who struggles, completely tanks her life, and finds her way back.

For what ever reason, I really enjoy it. It speaks to me and keeps me focused. I cry like a Turk newborn and can completely let go all the emotion I have bottled up inside. It also inspires me to be the wife and mother my family needs me to be.

  1. I only have seen part of that movie on TV!
    Every now and then all of us need a go cry and let it all out! I have many of those kids of days, when i would go on my closets and cry. I always feel a lot better.

  2. You always seem so busy! It's good to know that you can get a good cry in. I know I keep it bottled up inside…and it comes out at not so good times (like when I'm driving)!

  3. I agree… sometimes a girl just needs a good cry! I haven't ever heard of this movie, I know you didn't recommend it but I may have to look into it!

  4. Turk newborn – ha ha, good one!

    I'm not a crier either, but I LOVE to cry in movies. I've never seen that one, but I'll give it a try. Maybe I'll cut up an onion first, just in case.

  5. Chanda – I'm glad someone appreciated the Turk newborn analogy. šŸ˜‰ Did you get a good visual with the ugly face going on? hehe

    It's very rated R and gritty film about an alcoholic mother and what she and her family goes through during her recovery.

    Being a mother is the hardest thing in the world for me. I struggle all the time and rarely feel like I'm doing all that I should.

    Watching this movie gives me a reality of what will happen if I ever do self-destruct, validation that my role is so important, and a feeling that I can keep moving forward even with all my many faults.

    I need this reality check more often than I'd like to admit. šŸ˜‰
