The more you cry, the more you facilitate the process of grieving, and the more you facilitate your grieving, the sooner your wounds will heal. It is only if you have come apart to the depth of your tears, to the depth of your sorrow, to the depth of your hopes and your dreams and your expectations and your memories that you will ever be able to knit yourself back together again. Your tears are not only important, they are essential. They are the vehicle through which the healing occurs. Welcome them. Respect them. Give them room. And time.
