Help me burie my mother

Update posted by FREDRICK IGWEBUIKE On Feb 27, 2021

In other ways I was not alone. One of the most important lessons for me was to accept help. You want to help those you love—allow them to be there for you, too.

In line with my wish to be independent, I hate crying in front of people. I worried it would upset my family. I worried I made other people uncomfortable. I worried the tears would never stop.

Then somebody told me that it’s physiologically impossible to cry continuously. I can’t remember the time, but it’s something like twenty minutes after which the crying will automatically cease. That thought comforted me: The worst that could happen would be to cry for twenty minutes. That seemed manageable. Besides, there didn’t seem to be much I could do to stop the tears from coming anyway.

Once I relaxed about crying, I discovered how transformative tears could be. They offered and still offer a release of tension that would otherwise keep building up inside. They have a message that is worth listening to. They are part of life. Don’t feel ashamed.
