52/365 Crying doesn’t make you weak

We all cry sometimes. Crying is part of life and there is nothing you can do about it. Crying is also a part of our emotions and how we feel. Now, I don’t consider myself a sad person, but I would say that I have cried a lot of times. Sometimes it was if I injured or hurt myself, or if something I heard was emotional. Many people look down on people who cry all the time, but I would actually try to console them. I know some people who would just brush away the crying and would just say that they are crying for a very small thing. There have been times where someone would call me a cry baby or someone that cries a lot for dumb things. Even though if sometimes someone is crying over something small, that doesn’t make them weak. Let me set an example for all of you, to get the big picture.

You just got a D or a C on your school assignment from any class. You aren’t really good at this class and you start to feel overwhelmed when the teacher starts having bigger expectations on you and you start to feel the pressure on you and it’s too much to handle. Crying is something you might do, people will say that crying for getting a C or a D is something stupid and that you should learn to toughen up. Now, I understand what it’s like to feel overwhelmed through school, or through school work. It’s hard, and honestly, adults don’t always make it easy. Some people, I feel don’t really know how to handle issues where people are crying about something, and they are trying to console us, but then they say that we shouldn’t cry over a stupid reason. My mom is one person in my family who can console anyone in the right way. She listens to why we are sad and consoles us, no matter how small or big the reason is. Crying is kind of a healthier way of coping yourself and saying that it’s all gonna be alright. You can cry all of you stress, bothers, worries away and you would feel fine after sometime.

  1. My brave boy😍 crying makes you human🤗
    Even tough people cry it’s just that we don’t get to see them, and that doesn’t mean they don’t cry or feel emotional when they are sad.
    Chill 😎

  2. Rahi, you cry coz you have goodness in you. But that should not be an excuse to cry for simple things. For a child who cries for getting D, he cries coz according to him, getting a C or B or A is very important. So, the reason for feeling low is totally dependent on the person and hence it is not fair for others to judge whether you should cry or not. On the other hand, crying let’s you release your stress and soothen yourself. So it’s ok to cry at times…

  3. Rahi, Research suggests that when you cry, your body releases endorphins and oxytocin. These natural chemical messengers help relieve emotional distress along with physical pain. In other words, crying is a self-soothing behavior. That is a scientific validation from one of the wiki sites. Our body is built to self heal, whoever made us wanted us to be self reliant ….
    We cry to express emotions – a very broad spectrum of them such as sadness, happiness, frustration, joy, when in pain etc… we cry to communicate like see what babies do …
    Sometimes crying is the best option and sometimes learning some additional coping skills helps. People will judge you one way or the other whether it is because you cry or something else. Does it really matter then? I love your simple thoughts that are straight from the heart and well written. Keep up the good work!
