Crying is the shedding of tears or welling of tears in the eyes in response to an emotional state. This includes anger, happiness or sadness. Crying may be seen as a weakness but there’s this thought that only those who could show their tears are the truly brave ones.
Not known to many, crying has many good effects to our health. Here’s what psychologists have to say when yo cry easily.
1. Crying makes you a better person and a better friend.
*When you are feeling down, you can be a shoulder that someone can cry on or you can cry on someone’s shoulder. All you have to do is to cry, release all the pain and open up yourself to somebody that can understand you and will also help you.
2. Crying out is a sign that you are not afraid about your feelings.
*L**s of love ones, stress, anger, hatred, sadness, some health problems just like high blood sugar, hormonal imbalance and even materialized things like sad songs and movies are different factors and different kinds of reason which gives us the vulnerability to cry. By letting those tears fall makes you acceptable from the people around you and it also makes you ready to face all the fears from these feelings.
3. You are able to control and handle stress.
*Allowing your tears to fall down from your eyes in every situation that you are in can provide a purifying tool that will help you to reduce the strong and deep thoughts because holding it in and thinking about it for a long time can contribute to a severe psychological damage.
4. Crying means that you are strong enough that you don’t pay too much attention to what other people will say or think about your actions.
*There are times when we are feeling so weak and hopeless where we tend to hide inside our own shells and when there are a lot of people around us, we hide our pain and sadness from a sweet smile which is not usually recognized by them. This feeling is now serious and it should not be tolerated.
Those people who allow their tears to fall out easily are the strong ones because they have control over their emotions. It is very unhealthy to hold your tears back and not to cry at all.
