Cry It Out! Places In Great Falls To Have A Meltdown
It's right in the middle of the week, either it's going well or it's a train-wreck heading straight for Friday and a cocktail.
Luckily, there are benefits to having a cry session, It releases endorphins into the body numbing you out for a quick second until your brain can hit reset get on with whatever is stressing you out.
I suppose one can start crying at your desk in a fit of rage and stress and just work it out, but then you would just have to talk to someone about a project or a task with puffy eyes and a snotty face. It could be a bit awkward to talk to someone after ugly crying.
If some privacy to start blubbering is needed, there are a few places in Great Falls to travel to and just have it out with a box of tissues or your shirt, no one is not judging here.
The 10th Street Bridge
Take a hike down the Rivers Edge Trail and head to the 10th street bridge to get those emotions out. There's a bit of privacy in the middle to just grab a bench, sit down and work thoughts out, get some fresh air and face away from traffic.
Airport Hill Cutout
It's a place on top of the Electric City people go to get away from it all to just look out on the city in a quiet place. It's a great place to go during the day, I only express that because it has a posted curfew.
Warden Park/ Flag Hill
The scenery provides a great spot to let you emotions run free in the parking lot or you can hike up to the flag getting some exercise and some perspective before heading back to work.
The quiet, serene parking area overlooking Rainbow Dam is there for you to watch the water flow and melt away the stress getting you ready for whats coming next.
Parking Lot Under Black Eagle Park
A parking lot overlooking the Missouri River, It's usually empty on a normal non-holiday situation. Cry your troubles out and hit the giant metal slide, you'll be alright.
Wendy's Drive Through On Tenth Avenue
Who knows what decisions you've made to be in this line that takes upwards of a half an hour to 45 minutes to get through. All that matters is that your here, waiting on that 2 for $6, and there will be plenty of time for a meltdown and realization before you receive your delicious chicken sammich.
All humor aside...
Crying is normal, healthy and acceptable in a stressful situation. If you prefer to cry alone, there are many places you can kick back and think about what makes you stressed and how you can sort it out.
Remember if you need help, tell someone you know and trust, or get a hold of someone who can help.
