"It's okay to cry"
Crying stimulates endorphins, our feel-good hormone. And also, bottled up emotions turn into tantrums.
A few tears here and there all day long... or a VOLCANIC eruption at the dinner table. Your choice.
A lot of times it's our go-to reaction to say,
don't cry, you don't need to cry, you're fine, stop crying...
instead, try, it's okay to cry. Let it all out. You can take a break and cry when you're ready you can come back and join us.
