Why do I Cry

Today I came home and just had a little breakdown, a nice cry. I don't know what came over me I try not to be that emotional but I realize that when life pushes stress at me from all different directions at some point I can only hold so much water and the damn just bursts.
So I'm mid cry and Quentin is desperately trying to understand my problems. He keeps telling me that instead of saying just the facts I'm explaining all these side stories and now he really doesn't know what I'm talking about. After due process and I've drained my tears everything just doesn't seem that bad anymore and for some reason I feel refreshed.
Then I ask Quentin why he doesn't just cry sometimes, I mean it's something he doesn't do. I know it seems like such a simple thing men and women being different on average, but I want to know why sometimes. Why is it that we deal with the same stress of the world differently. I guess I'm stubborn and want to believe that it's just our bodies that are different not the way we think. I suppose growing up with a very Greek emotional father I always thought I was pretty in control of my emotions in comparison, but now I'm not so sure. O well after it's all said and done I'm very fortunate to have a husband who will take the time to listen to me pour out all my troubles, it's such a great stress relief and I'm kinda glad men and women are different.

I think a good cry is a great release. It allows you to relax and start fresh.

Mens minds are actually very different.... you had that right. so it also means they 'think' different, just like you said.

Lisa, have you ever read Men are From Mars Woman are from Venus?

I read it years ago and have such a better understanding on how we both are so different and how each of our needs are met so differently.. anyone thinking of divorce has actually been recommended this book... it's my bible!!! i used to keep it in my night table.. hmmm, where did it go now? i could still use it at times.. tee hee.

Oh yes I've read all of the Venus/Mars books, and you're right the've been very helpful over the years and I believe them more at this point in my life. When I was in school I thik I wrote a paper in an upper pschyology class totally bashiing the theory, I think I was going through a break up at the time.
