It does not matter whether you are happy or whether you are sad, it is okay to cry. It does not symbolize weakness, but rather the expression of emotion. I know that for many of us showing too much emotion can seem like we are giving away too much of our pride, but every now and then, I don’t care who you are, you need to cry. It is okay to break down every now and then, have a good cry and just move on. You will feel better afterwards.

  1. I love a good cry - just for clearing out all the emotions so I can start collecting them up again! But, no, it's definitely not a sign of weakness :-)

  2. I agree. It does help and acts as a physical release.

  3. I'm all for having a good cry. I just hate how puffy my eyes are the day after.

  4. Yup, tears are a good release. They wash out your heart. But I agree with Jai about the puffy eyes.

  5. That's why I love tear jerker movies. Sometimes, I don't even realize how much I need a good cry, until the tears explode. I always feel better after a good cry.

  6. Just can't help it...

  7. I don't mind crying, I just prefer to choose the setting.

  8. Crying is a great stress release. I am just as apt to burst into tears when I'm over-stressed as when I'm sad.

  9. Annalisa - Thank you for agreeing.

    Donna - I completely agree! I have cried a few times because of stress and I did feel better afterwards.

    Nick - Oh, I absolutely agree with you. It makes you feel free in some way.

    Jai - Oh, I know! I look like I have been in a fight or something.

    Elizabeth - Washing out the heart is a beautiful way of looking at it, thank you for sharing it with me. I really like that thought.

    Melissa - I have cried at certain movies, but I tried to cry so that no one saw. My family do not quite understand crying because of a sad movie. But I share your sentiments. - Tears just tend to sneak up one me sometimes.

    LD Masterson - Hahah! That is a great way of putting it. I agree with you. Certain situations or settings are just now fitting for tears. - I can relate to that! I was so upset one time that I cried. Luckily those situations do not happen often.
