If it feels good, do it.

I know this has been discussed many times before, but I don't know if it has been discussed here.

We all know society has created the idea that, in general, men don't cry. It is instilled in us from childhood. I know it's a stupid notion, but there are times I feel like crying and I can't. My mind and my body tell me I need to release this emotion, but I just can't. It's been a year and a half since I last cried. And that was when I saw my girlfriend take her last breath. All this sadness is inside me and I can't release it.

I guess what I'm asking is, how do other males out there respond to a personally emotional trauma? What do you do when your heart aches? Do you hold it inside or do you let it out? The few times I've cried it's always taken some of the pain away. So why is it so hard now?
