Get the tissues out and don’t even bother with mascara because this week, Bev and Marina talk about the very human act of crying, and the emotions behind it.
When was the last time you cried? Is it a distant memory because you’re not a big cryer, or was it only yesterday because crying is something you do on a regular basis? Whether you cry at the drop of a hat, or you tend to be more like Cameron Diaz in ‘The Holiday’, the ladies cover it all. From the kind of visceral crying that comes from losing a loved one, to the kind of crying you only experience when something makes you laugh so hard your belly hurts, this episode covers these and everything in between.
As is so often the case with our presenters, they have very different approaches when it comes to crying. Marina has learned to embrace her tears, whereas if you cry in front of Bev she may well call you a “big Jessie”. Having said that, neither of them are immune to a good old cry when watching a sad film, or reading a book.
When it comes to making life As Good As It Gets, should we feel less embarrassed about crying in the office, or on the tube or in the supermarket? And should we learn to be more accepting of ourselves and others when the flood gates open? Perhaps if we learn to really embrace the tears, both our mental and physical health may benefit.
