As a counselor, I know that it is good to let yourself cry. Crying is a release of emotion and allows us to process our sadness in healthy ways and prevents our grief from becoming internalized. But…come on…sometimes enough is enough already! So, in all of my recent attempts to try not to cry I have found the following very helpful:
Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
