Crying greatly reduces our stress levels. We can cry tears of rage, frustration, grief, sorrow, exhaustion, and fear— to name but a few of the emotions that can trigger tears. We can also cry tears of joy and relief — and sometimes we really don’t know why we are crying, but we should always let the tears flow when they come.
Almost any really strong emotion can create tears, and it is important to allow them. Never be afraid to cry, as it is a vital part of your healing process for the situation. Pent up tears can cause blockages in your whole system.
Why on earth people say “Don’t cry” is beyond me.
I say “Do have a good cry, you’ll feel so much better for it“.
