> Dear Mary -- this is a very interesting question, and I have asked myself the same question. Before finally beginning medication for depression, I was extremely sad -- for years. But I rarely cried. I chalk it up to just not being a crier! I think some people just naturally cry more than others. I would look forward to hearing other people's opinions about this. Obviously there's probably something much more deeper-rooted than my simple opinion! Take care.

Recently been to a holotropic breathwork session and after years of not being able to start crying (are you a fool? this is ridiculous to start crying now...) I've experienced lots of catharsis that I really needed, besides others I cried deeply for about 15 minutes and felt like a newborn after that, mind you I am a male ('and we know male never cries....') Now I understand better that it was something in me that would always 'defend' myself from crying. I let go of that control (unordinary state of consciousness) and I cried! And it was so releiving...I whole-heartedly recommend it.
