    Sad movies, happy reunions,

    tear jerker stories, etc. make me feel better. I love a long and hard cry. The release of emotions is so powerful.

    I Believe Crying Makes Us More Human.

    Many see crying as a sign of weakness, I don't. And I am not only talking about the tears of joy. I believe that crying is a very primal way of expressing our emotions, it taps in something most of us fear to look into, our animal side, our non conscious self. When our soul and...
