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.

    • Problem now is that the real facists now call themselves anti-fascists.  You are nice guy Sukh but I feel that you are quite naive.  You need to look at where the violence is coming from and who is shutting down free speech. Ironically it is likes of Tommy Robinson who is on the receiving end of the quote you have mentioned above. If you have a chance please see this link, it may explain what may have happened to you:  
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji Lol, I was talking about the guru gayatri mantra that is in JAAP SAHIB (Gobinday Mukunday Udaaray Apaaray Hariang Kariang Nirnamay Akamay). Not the vedic om bhur bavaha swaha one. Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Try to analyze and smajaa ur mind. Like why do you like her mind? Is it because shes pretty? Well beauty fades and we all become old and ugly. So beauty is just a trap and mind u should be ashamed to have fallen for such a simple trick of maya. As that beauty is really just skin, bones, hair, blood, and guts arranged in a certain way to trick us. And if we really must admire beauty, why not admire the one who designed the beautiful mountains, streams, rivers, which have no parallel. The beautiful One from which all creation comes from, Waheguru Is it because of her good qualities? Then love the qualities not the person they adorn. Try to adopt those good qualities yourself. Because God is the source, he is all Goodness, so all good qualities flow from him. So imagine how beautiful, how Good waheguru is! The one who created all the goodness in the world.only he is worthy of falling in love. As that love will purify us and make us as Great, Good, and beautiful as waheguru is.  Is it because she is amritdhari? In that case thank the guru who accepted all of us mere humans and made us singhs and kaurs. He trusted us to be the best khalsa, to not be like other mere humans, engrossed in worldly things. Instead compete with the girl for the gurus affection. If she wears a dastaar, you wear a dumalla. Is she does nitnem, u do nitnem plus simran. If she wakes up at 4am, u wake up at 3am. You know ur mind is engrossed in thinking of her, use that to make urself a better sikh. Start working out, do more paath and simran. Do ardaas to guruji to make you a true sikh, who gets over this crush.
    • Also will you be able to say No to the American and wat explanation will you give? And will you be able to forget him completely,  if married to the other guy? Also to make a hard choice, you should  write down the pros and cons of each choice . Then say if i remove all the cons of the Canadian guy, like if he took amrit, will that convince me? If not, then it means ur heart is already set on the other. Also if the american moved to canada, will that be enough to convince you he's the one without a doubt? If not, then maybe consider the other person   
    • When we become too relaxed, we fall asleep. If we have been sitting down too long. Blood starts collecting in our legs and doesnt flow as fasr, so we dont get enough oxygen. So move around. Maybe do mool mantar standing up with folded hands, like an ardaas, begging for darshan. Most importantly, concentrate on the meanings. Also u can try to do simran in bir asan position that the panj pyare take. Or after like 15 mins. Do 5 jumping jacks, then sit down and start doin simran again. Also try to put some emotion into it, like I am calling out to God, who is my beloved, and I have been forcefully seperated from him. And without my origin, i am dry and worthless. And whats even worse, in maya i have forgotten who God is, and that I was seperated from him.  You can also try to do simran loudly. Also try to say waheguru with each breath.  Also keep switching positions or ways of doing simran, so u dont fall asleep
