Maxene Magalona, 34, took to social media to share what happened during her last therapy session.
In her latest Instagram post, KAMI learned that the actress uploaded a crying selfie, sharing that she has "been crying more than usual."
According to Maxene, she was stunned when her psychiatrist told her she "looked really sad and down" as she thought she was doing just fine.
"I was surprised because I really thought I was doing okay," Maxene began, "But apparently she said that even when we think we’re doing okay and that everything is going great.
"It’s still important to check in with our emotions on a daily basis so that we can release the ones we need to let go of.
"We are always so caught up in the external world that we completely forget to take care of what’s happening inside us."
According to Maxene, her therapist gave her an assignment about crying and connecting with her sadness.
"True enough, during one of my morning meditations, I was able to tap into my sadness and just suddenly started sobbing. It felt amazing afterwards. I felt free, light and happy."
At the end of her post, Maxene said that she believes in crying as "an essential form of inner cleansing."
"Denying our negative emotions will just make things worse. They will just pile up and get bottled up inside of us until we explode.
"If we cry or express our anger in a healthy way, we can hold space for our emotions and release them properly.
"Just like how the world needs rain sometimes, we also need to allow ourselves to cry as this form of inner cleansing will be nourishment for the soul."
