How often do you cry? Do you think it's good to let your emotions out, or should you try to maintain your composure?

I have heard some people say you shouldn't bottle up your emotions, so it's good to let emotions out. But I've heard other people say that the more often you express your extreme emotions, such as anger (yelling) or sadness (crying), the worse it gets. And that refraining from letting these outbursts happen actually helps with your emotional well-being.

What do you think?

It doesn't matter what people think because it's known that crying is a natural and positive response from body and that you shouldn't suppress it. It's literally, unironically, good for you, your health, your brain and your mind.

Very very rarely, but I see no problem doing it. Unless you're in a public place and would like to maintain your composure, I see no reason to hold either back. If someone is crying or getting angry too often, the problem isn't the action of crying or yelling and rather there is something more wrong that needs to be addressed.

I haven't cried in years. Anyone else like this? I just find no matter the situation, I can't cry.

Only when I'm drunk or otherwise impaired. Maybe once or twice every few years I'll cry because I just wake up in serious emotional or physical pain for whatever reason. Other than that I occasionally feel like I'm going to tear up, but it usually leads nowhere.

I also don't really believe in the "let emotions out" thing. Out of what? Emotions aren't things that exist inside you, they are transient states you occupy, they have no existence otherwise.

>Emotions aren't things that exist inside you, they are transient states you occupy
You're absolutely wrong. If you deem existence as something that can be proven by how it affects other things, then emotions are not abstract constructs. Being sad, angry, happy, etc. have definitive, measurable impact in your body, your brain, your immune systems, wound healing, amount of energy, metabolism, and so on. Just because you have rationalized your behaviour to feel better about your personal outlook doesn't mean you're right.

I think you have made an error when you read my post. I didn't say they don't exist at all, I said they don't exist inside of you. You aren't some vessel that contains emotion carrying humors like bile, it's not something you can "bottle" and store. As you say in your own post, emotions are temporary altered physical and mental states that you occupy. They only exist so long as you exist within them, they aren't something that can be let "out" anymore than you can let out "your body, your brain, your immune systems, wound healing, amount of energy, metabolism, and so on".

your thoughts, memories, and mental state are all in your brain
that's something you take with you, it's not like your brain gets reset
PTSD is an example of how negative emotions and memories can stick with you, they don't go away as quickly as you imply
also studies have shown that stress impacts people's health
it's not some immaterial superstition, it's a part of your brain chemistry

When I get depressed, I usually don't bother to cry anymore, but I can get lost for hours in thought, oftentimes channeling into a lot of nostalgia and memories. I'm not sure if that's any healthier than crying.

How is it unhealthy? My mood picks up after losing myself in childhood nostalgia.

I seldom cry. Only twice this year, once when the depression hit real hard, and today when I went with my dad to see his sister right before her death in the hospital.

You are not alone.
It's very exhausting.

I cry at the end of every month and I really wish I didn't.
Probably better to maintain composure but I don't think it matters if you're alone.

I cry in my sleep now only, I also cry when watching anime. I don’t have strong emotions for real life anymore. But the way anime displays friendships, love, life it gets to me. It strange people like to live in misery and distrust, even with he closest relatives. I don’t understand
