Crying is healthy
Posted November 2, 2009on:
Most people are ashamed and embarrassed of being seen crying. This is especially true for younger people because in front of your peers, it would seem totally “uncool”. As you grow older however, you will start to understand that crying is normal and that it is just another expression of your emotions. Whenever something bad happens you may start to cry, most of the times, without your intentions of doing so. Although it is embarrassing, scientists say that it is a healthy activity, if done moderately. Crying relives built up emotions and tensions, and it is one way of cleaning your deepest emotions that no words can describe. Research shows that people who try to hold back their tears tend to be more tense and moody while people who cry at times seem happier. This makes sense because if you keep filling yourself up with anger and sadness and conceal them from everybody, you will just become more unhappy. However, if you let everything out at once, you will be clear of the negative energies. You might not think it is credible but you have got to admit that after a bad day, crying makes you feel surprisingly better.
