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

THERAPY FOR CLARITY

Not only is it normal and natural to cry in therapy, but it can in fact be so healthy and helpful!  Being vulnerable in this way - crying as your therapist supports you - is in part what can allow you to heal the hurt behind the tears.

My wish for you is that you learn that crying is not only okay but that being vulnerable and 'real' in hard moments, is actually how we come to know our deepest needs and truest strength 💜
