I can't cry.
While out for a run, I really started to think about this. I remember being 13 years old and not being able to cry when my beloved Grandmother passed away.. In fact, I felt really guilty and I think that's what pushed me into pouring tears of 'grieving'. This was always a back-burner thought, but as I grew up and started eating healthier and healthier, I seemed to become almost emotionally unattached to a lot of the 'dramas' people brought upon themselves (as I saw it). I never was one to opt for boy drama, so I couldn't really relate that much when girlfriends would come teary eyed to me to help them pick the pieces up...and so on.
I had somewhat of a strict childhood (discipline wise) and know that has a little bit to do with me being pretty stern with myself and others when it comes to weakness and picking yourself and moving on - but in a way I view this as a strength.
Here's where I really want to delve into what my point is. Sure I cried like everyone does when something upsetting happened...but when I went raw vegan, and then high-carb high raw vegan (at times 100%, at times 70-80%) I just can't seem to shed tears for emotionally upsetting situations! From what I've read - when you heal your adrenals (the seat of your emotions) it becomes a lot easier to harness your feelings and not get so upset - or at least that's what the wind told me...and so I was wondering if anyone else can relate? When you went lfv did you experience a lot of health benefits, and part of it a very STRONG willpower (which I love) and stern mental and emotional motivation and mindset? I don't view this as a weakness, really - because that's why I believe so many people live in DRAMA due to weak kidneys/adrenals, poor eating choices, and poor lifestyle situations in general...
but it would be interesting to know if any other people on this forum experience this phenomena of "I can't Cry.
P.S. The last time I cried was when I watched "Earthlings" over a year ago..
