When was the last time you cried out?

When was the last time you cried out?

I’ve been told not to cry because it is a weakness. I’ve been told not to cry because it is no use to others. In addition, I personally believed crying is too emotional in some sense. I saw my mum cried in public uncontrollably. I saw my mum cried for hours after hours and felt that’s a bit childish. The meaning I gave to that was crying is something I should be ashamed. These were my beliefs about crying.

Tears are words that need to be written.

Paulo Coelho

Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness.

They are a sign of pure heart.

Jose N Harris

I had good beliefs about crying too. I believed that it releases the tension. I believed that there are good crying too. I believe that crying as a result of emotional burst, it is beautiful.

When I was young, I saw some seniors cried out of joy. They were crying after an event. They said they were emotional because the event was so successful and beautiful. I probably yet to related to that. I still can’t see what they see.

Crying is cleansing.

There’s a reason for tears, happiness or sadness.

Dionne Warwick

Any fool can be happy.

It takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep.

Clive Barker

I have learnt to choose when to cry and who to share with. Now, I believe, there are purpose to crying out. I need a safe space and permission for myself to crying out. I found that although I told myself “I don’t have time to cry”, after I allowed myself to do so I function more efficiently. My nurturing adult-self will say with a big hug “now you had your cry, you had your moments, pick yourself up and act!” It’s almost like “I had dealt with my emotions now so ready to face other parts.”

Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.

Natalie Clifford Barney

Crying out is an emotional expression. Depending on your situation, it might be an emotional release. You have a choice when and where to crying out and who you share that with. You have a choice how you want to treat yourself afterwards.

For me, I do not have negative images attached to crying out. Well, yes, you can’t do that every moment. It is your inner-self asking for some attention and care for yourself. Your inner-self asking for support, comfort, and big hug!!
