Do you have a reason for crying? If you don't feel comfortable talking about it publicly you could pm me.

If you are comfortable with sharing then please do let us know what the matter is here or through pm. We are more than happy to help our little bro :) It is very nice of the guys above to also be concerned. Don't think that its unmanly or unsikh to cry. Sikhi teaches us to be sympathetic so it is better you have emotions rather than being a stoned hearted fool. Bottling up your emotions will make it worse so it is better to share it with somebody. :)

lol Simran ji, finding the root of the problems

Depends why you are feeling like this. Is there something that scares you? are you worried about something? is something causing you stress. Crying isn't bad, it's what makes us more compassionate. It's a humbling process in my opinion. So what's on your mind. Share with the Sangat if you wish.

Kira ji the reason I asked those questions is because some vitamin,mineral and nutritional deficiencies may also cause low mood or depression symptoms, such as b12 or D. They can affect anybody be it adults or children, so a doctor would more likely do a blood test first if there are ongoing emotional problems. Edited by simran345

Simran is being "sciency", (we all got different ways to help each other out).

Jacfsing2 ji, I'm not being sciency, just being practical with gristhi Jeevan. One needs both, spiritual and gristhi Jeevan in order to solve problems as they should go hand in hand with each other. It is not wise to neglect health awareness where cognitive or emotional issues are present. Hanji u are right each has there own ways to help each other out, but sometimes we forget the basic things of daily life.

Simran Ji. I wasn't ridiculing you, I think you're approach was logical and refined. I believe it was an entirely simple and effective approach and I agree with it completely. I'm well aware these things can cause these sorts of symptoms however I was just surprised that no one had yet mentioned them till you rightfully spoke up :D

Well brother,

as almost all of the friendly posters here have said, speak out whatever you have inside,so that you can get a mature answer.

When we go to a doctor, we just do not say it pains me here.

In order to facilitate the doctor´s job, we have also to tell him since when we got it, or how we got it, if it was by falling down, or getting hurt with something hard or whatever it could be.

It is only you, who knows what for you get emotional... so please do not feel ashamed, we are all brothers and sisters here, to help each other; speak out, and you will surely get help from the sangat.

You are growing up, so it is just but natural to ask, until you reach a certain age in maturity. But then too, it is always good to share one´s queries.

Sat Sree Akal.

    • In the increasingly feminised world, Islam is seen by some as the last bastion of masculinity.
    • How many of them are "religious" and "spiritual" in prison like they are "gay for the stay" And the ones that go to Syria to fight for ISIS are hardly less animalistic. There are a lot of perks to be muslim in prison, it's like being bribed. I very much doubt they cook their own food, they probably get their food from outside. What it means is that prison services are discriminating against non muslim prisoners. This muslim conversion is like a gang and yes it is like a brotherhood but muslim brotherhood is built on a "us" versus "them" mentality. Which makes sense because they are in a constant state of war "Dar Ul Harb vs Darl Ul Salam ". It is not like a Sikh brotherhood. True brotherhood is not built on antagonism. However, if you feel this great respect for this being that you are an east end cockney bad boy tearaway ensure you are not becoming a dhimmi.

      Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh  Sometimes we need to reflect inward, what I'm about to say may even hurt a little more (not my intention, but I think it will) during the ardaas when you were asking for high marks ji, before you asked you heard of Gurmukhs who undoubtedly had it way worse, mothers who had children cut into pieces put around like a necklace, Gurmukhs who were tortured to death by grinders, now if we think about it, they have more of a reason to be mad then you do. They lost there lives. You had one bad exam grade. They still at the end of the day said thank you to mahraj. They had such priceless thinking. We can't even be the dust on there feet! That's the pyar we as Sikhs should aspire for. To just get sad with mahraj over one grade, I don't think that the pyar for mahraj was there at all in the beginning, I think that the pyar may have been for someone getting the job done, that someone we (I'm in the same boat) decided was mahraj, and as long as our desires were filled we didn't have a problem, one exam grade and like the manmukhs we are (again you and me both) abandon mahraj. So now we have a choice, accept that we messed up ask for forgiveness and stand back up, or get mad stay mad, until we find someone else who can bless us (Loads of these "babay" out there) with good grades and live life based on lies. You will get true sikhi, you'll get the true pyar, just stay strong. If any of my words offend you. I'm sorry. If our ithhaas/gurmuth philosophy offended you, I'm not sorry. Again I'm the type of pakhand to go out there and tell other people this, yet I myself probably would get mad over doing an ardaas like you did. I'm one of those who can talk the talk, but can't walk the walk.  Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh 
    •  No mate, I don't hate you at all.  You talk too much and that's kinda irritating!
    • Again, it's not about pinning blame, or going after certain groups. It's just a case of reminding people that as Sikhs we need to look out for each other. I'm not blaming Amritdharis for the woes of the world, lol. I just think we should be at the forefront of certain issues that I wouldn't expect others to bother with. But that's not happening for some reason, or at least not in a noticeable manner.
