"have a good cry."

to renovate himself
to replace one´s batteries.
to energize oneself.
to rejuvenate himself/themselves etc.

drown one's sorrows (afogar as máguas, alguém pode achar que lava a alma após tomar umas
carraspanas-nesse sentido lavar a alma é esquecer os problemas, ainda que temporariamente)


to get the time of your life.
reward yourself for a good job done...
enjoy your football team winning (or the rival team defeating -specially if it is Santa Cruz or Sport
)...he he.
to gain the day (in the above case too...ha ha)

unburden smb.'s soul to smb.
