“…you know that a good, long session of weeping can often make you feel better, even if your circumstances have not changed one bit.” – Lemony Snicket

Crying is good for you

I’ve always cried a lot. I’ve cried without caring about where I am or who I’m with. I’m telling you this because I know there are many others like me.

I used to think that there something the matter with me because I’m so sensitive. But after years of thinking that way, I’ve finally started appreciating my ability to feel so much even if I do burst into tears.

I see my tears as a part of the healing process. It is just a myth that tears are for the weak. It takes real courage to show others how you feel and it helps you in more ways than one.

1. Cleansing

Water is a cleansing agent, and salt water even more so. Tears work the same way a hot shower makes you feel more relaxed after a long day. They remove all the stress and negativity within.

2. Relaxing

Much like exercise, crying also stimulates your brain to produce endorphins which are the hormones that make you feel good.

3. Healing

Crying is a necessary part of the healing process. It is the expression of an emotion that rises from deep within you. By letting it out, you’re actually helping yourself listen to what your heart wants to tell you.

4. Releasing

One more reason why crying makes you feel good is because you’re finally letting out all that anxiety, worry and hurt you’ve been hiding from everyone else.

It is necessary to let these emotions come out if you wish to heal yourself. By crying, you’re clearing out the negativity and opening up space for happier things.

5. Processing

Tears are a natural component of grief and they help deal with heartache and loss. No matter how much it hurts, we need to start putting out lives back together and crying is an essential element in this process.
