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

Sometimes therapy is the only place some people feel safe to cry.  Feeling validated and heard in a non-judgmental environment can also be a new feeling for people searching for answers and support.  Knowing that you are not alone, and that change is possible can be a relief when someone has been struggling with depression, anxiety and PTSD.  I would say that crying in therapy is normal.
