|Let It Out|
Let yourself grieve for once.
- "If tears should fall from my eyes""Just think of all the wounds they could mend,""And just think of all the time I could spend""Just being vulnerable again."-- "If I Could Feel," The Wiz
- Batman prompts Commissioner Gordon to do this after the Joker kidnaps him in The Killing Joke. The guy has a lot in the way of traumatic experience.
- Batman generally does this for anyone he cares about who he knows isn't dealing with something properly - while not allowing himself to fully do so: he believes if he truly grieves it will lead to forgiveness, and then his dedication would falter. However, he doesn't want anyone else to end up like he thinks he needs to be, so he encourages others to do what he can't.
