OK to show grief

There is much heartache in the world.
That said, there is a foolish point of view that one should not show grief — that it is not proper to cry or express oneself through tears or sobbing.
That is denial of the law of nature. It is natural to cry when pain or sorrow comes. It is a relief mechanism provided in the body by God and should be used.
To bottle up grief is to fail to use one of God’s means for eliminating the pressure of sorrow.
Superficial escapism, such as parties and drinking, deadens pain temporarily but does not heal.
Unfortunately, too many people use the wrong approaches when trying to deal with their heartaches.
