Primal Scream is something that people do in my area. Actually, it's Primal Scream time right now. I'd actually forgotten until I heard the shouting. (Yeah, Primal Screaming is just what it sounds like. Everyone yells as loud and as long as they feel they need to.)
A friend of mine asked if I was going to do it. I nodded, stood up, walked outside, and emitted what I, if I were writing, would call a loud, piercing cry. Then I walked back inside and went back to what I was doing.
You know what, I feel better now.
I am officially in favor of Primal Screams. I think the concept is based on some psychological theory that was popular in the 70s. I don't know why it's not in vogue anymore, but it's fun. :)
I think we should all express out emotions. Just a little bit. Okay, just a lot. I think a little emotional honesty makes us all feel a little better.
So, today, I would advocate expressing your emotions, even if it's just in the form of a loud, piercing wail.
What's your primal scream?
