Recessed, Depressed and Need a Big Cry? Enlist a Friend and Let It Flow

I think it’s safe to say if you’ve lost your job or are close to someone who’s been laid off, you’ve experienced some tears. And you’ve probably tried to fight them back. Well, Psychology Today tells us if we borrow a buddy’s shoulder and and unleash the flood gates, we might feel better!

According to Psychology Today‘s June issue (on stands now), 88.8 percent of people feel better after crying. Also, Sophie Kerszberg writes, “weep on a friend’s shoulder and you might share a smile afterward. Sob alone and you may be left with your problem and a tear-soaked pillow for your troubles.”

Good advice. Now grab a Kleenex and get on with it.

**This is a good issue. I’ll be reviewing it later for MPS Newsstand.
