You can cry without tears. You can have tears without crying. You can’t cry without sadness though.
Whether you let it out or bottle it up, crying isn’t generally something that people like to do in front of other people. It shows weakness, vulnerability, pain; things that we, as human beings, don’t want other people to see.
Babies cry for attention.
Children cry from physical pain.
And once that child is able to react to emotional pain, we cry for anything. When someone dies, when we get called a name, when we feel defeated, when we’re under pressure, when things don’t go our way, when we’re scared, when things just become too much to handle…
But why do we cry? What good does it do for us?
I think it helps us. Keeping so much negative emotion bottled up will slowly tear away at you from the inside. And we’re all stubborn about it to. We don’t want to cry.
But it helps. You cleanse yourself of that negative emotion. When you cry to the point where you can’t cry anymore, then you can pick yourself up and move forward.
Crying can helps us with our grief, with our trauma, with our demons. I used to think that peopel who cried were weak. But they’re the ones who are actually strong. They’re dealing with their pain, thinking about it and letting out. Who are the people who don’t face their troubles and bottle everything up inside? Cowards.
