    Because I Know The Opposite Is True

    Not crying when you need to cry. It leaves you with a lot of 'stuck' pain. I would have preferred to cry more easily.

    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.

    There is a feeling of relief

    when I cry. I'd have a stress headache sometime but letting the tears come out make it feels like all of those emotions that lied dormant within myself is finally free. Sigh๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ง

    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...

    Crying actually helps me alot more

    than anger or stress. It's alot better and easier as long as it's not in an embarrasing fashion.
