Is it normal for people to cry during therapy, or is it just me?

It's normal to experience many intense emotions in therapy. Sometimes those emotions lead to tears- so, long story short... yes! It's also quite common for emotions like frustration and even anger to be felt during the therapeutic process. Change and processing is hard. Allow the emotions to come through naturally and discuss them if it seems like it would be helpful.
