Life stands still for no one, and in our quest to keep moving and push through whatever emotion we may be dealing with, we can unfortunately lose touch with our true feelings, which is unhealthy.
This will sound strange, but one of the things I actually enjoy about my cycle is getting in touch with feelings that I may have set aside (or not even realize that I had) during other days in the month. This doesn't mean that I literally cry over spilled milk, but I find that I am very aware of concerns, loved ones, and personal decisions during this time, and I allow myself to feel and deal with whatever the thought or concern may be accordingly.
I look at it as another opportunity to become centered, and always feel better for allowing myself to cry, laugh, connect with someone, or otherwise. Getting into your feelings can be good, whatever it is you need to process is not going to get better until you do.. :)
