am glad u made this post..cause it made me reflect back!!..when i ws a kid..i used to throw the usual tantrums and have tears rolling down..whenever i want something done..and most of the time, things were done like i wanted!..but as i gre up..i quit crying comlpletely..well..almost!!..i dont usually cry in front of anyone..except ofocurse i feel really helpless..but i dont think anything can be done when u cry..but..crying does help to vent ur emotions..and relieve u from whats holding you..and dont u think crying comes involuntarily?for me, it does..there are times i just cannot hold back, eventhough i badly want to!

Crying is one of the the deepest, most basic level of emotional expression. Just like when you scream when you are angry, you will feel better for some time, because you have showed or reveal your true feeling. Our feelings do not go away because we stop expressing them and sometimes crying can be the best outlet to show our emotions whether its happiness, loneliness or anger. Having a heavy heart is not easy and when you let your self cry and let go of all those emotions somehow the pain is lessen.

Crying is good as it makes you feel better it gives you a chance to vent out all your feelings which are suffocating you, you feel relieved after crying and your burden also feels a little less otherwise it builds up and up and may give rise to various health problems.

I didnt judge you or anything.. what i felt i said to you.. i care about you a lot.. so i too felt a little bad.. that you are hiding from me something.. I have seen lot of gud qualities in you which i was lukn for in a gal with whom i can spend my life.. And all those i saw in you and you became a craze for me.. So i need to know more about you.. and after going through all your post i felt so.. that ur stil not able to get rid of previous relationship.. If ur single and if you have no, issues with me and if you got some feeling like what i feel to you.. i will be the happiest person in the world.. if i get a gal like u as my soulmate.. If your answer is no also, we will be the best friends ever who can share all our worries and happiness without any barrier, and we both will work for the success of our HB community.. and we will be gud friends... But if you are single and feel alone, and want a companion, am always there for you.. and i will come there and meet your parents and i will take u back here and we will start a new life.. when you feel like.. So dont tell that it is my last mail and all as you said in the last mail in HB.. Am waiting for you to see the reply of my last mail.. Hope you will comeback to HB and reply my mail asap... If i hurted in any way by words or expresiions, it was not intentionaly.. suddenly i felt ver y bad after going through your discussions.. so please forgive me and comeaback to HB..
