Punching Holes in Walls: The Healthier Alternative To Crying

6/1/2021 by Brandon Puff

Let me paint a picture for you: It’s been a stressful week. Your boss won’t stop harassing you, there’s been a death in your family, and your partner just left you.

What’s your gut reaction? It might be to grab a box of kleenex and let the tears flow for a few hours, but I would advise against it.

I’m not a scientist or one of those fancy doctors that will sit there while you whine about your life. But as a man that owns a sports car, so I know a thing or two about what’s best for everyone. 

Rather than crying, what if there was a healthier solution that didn’t make you look like a woman? Well, I’m writing this to let you readers know that there is something primal and untapped that many supposedly “healthy” people avoid every day. 

Sadness may be one of the strongest emotions out there, but the one emotion that’s stronger: rage.

Rage consumes us and destroys the parts of us that feel empathy. It purges the feeling of sadness from our body and removes our urge to cry. One of the best ways to bolster your own rage is through physical acts of violence. 

Now obviously you can’t commit this on another person but you can take your emotions out on your wall.

When I’m feeling sad, even briefly, I replace that sadness with anger and let my fist go straight through the drywall. Once you do this, you’re bound to feel a sense of relief come over you, and if you don’t then you can just punch another hole in the wall. 

Experts have known about this method for decades but have marked it off as “destructive”. Personally, I feel the most destructive thing a person can do is cry.

When you cry, you’re raising the estrogen levels in your body by a billion percent[1] and you have to live with the fact that you’re a little bitch baby with no balls that cries all the time. But when you punch your wall, not only do you get cool scars on your knuckles, but you can show people how strong you are when they come over.

So the next time you’re sad, you have two choices. Cry all day long and maybe feel a little better, or you can tighten your fist, grab a Monster energy drink, and smash through that one inch of hardened drywall. Cry like a bitch, or prove you’re a warrior. The choice is yours.
