Have you ever wondered why people cry?
People cry in some stage of their life.
Have your ever cried?
It would be a lie if you say you have never cried in your life.
Crying is an open exhibition of your inner emotions. It shows you are very human and emotional to your feelings.
Tears welled in my eyes when the doctor methodically explained to me that my husband was suffering from kidney failure.
While the doctor was emotionless, I was crying my heart out.
What made me cry?
The doctor was emotionless as my husband was just a patient to him. But my husband meant the world to me. So I had an emotional attachment towards him. I cried because the person I loved was suffering.
Why do people cry? Makes you very human and sensitive
Emotions and feelings play a great role in making people cry.
What are the top reasons people cry in their life?
- Persistent failures and defeats
- Relationship problems
- Love failure
- Crushed expectations
- Illness of your dear ones
- Rejections and rebuffs
These are some of the common reasons why people cry.
Persistent disappointments you face in your life makes you feel dejected and stressed. You try to control your emotions but you feel suffocated. So you resort to helpless crying.
Your unrealistic expectations about your life are mostly not met. You want instant success but it does not happen as you imagined. You wait for years for your success.
When you see your colleagues enjoying success denied to you, you feel completely discouraged and miserable. So you cry to lighten your burdened heart.
When you lose your dear ones you cannot bear it. You have to cry. Otherwise you will suffocate with sorrow.
When you face financial debacle you curse your misjudgment about money. You break your head that you had been a fool to have mishandled your hard-earned money. Loans and debts terrify you. You cry to relieve your agony.
Can you see you have different reasons for crying?
When you are stressed you feel suffocated by your anxiety. You feel emotionally deprived. When miserable feelings overwhelm you your emotions overflow as tears.
Crying actually relieves your emotional pain. Your agony lessens, more like an ice thawed. You become less burdened. If you do not cry when your emotions are running high, you become mentally stressed and drained. So crying is actually a blessing. It relieves your stress and tension.
But why do some people cry at the drop of a hat?
These people are actually cowardly and pathetic. Even a small disappointment makes them cry. When they cry you do not feel sympathy. You are angry at their emotional blackmail.
Men usually do not cry as they are very practical. But this does not mean they are without emotions. It is their attitude of suppressing their feelings that make them more susceptible to heart problems. They feel it is not manly to show emotions. When men cry, it means they are hurt very badly and they can take it no more.
I used to be a cry baby not long ago. I cried for the silliest of reasons. But the terrible problems I faced in my life has hardened me. Now I do not cry for silly reasons.
You cry when you are happy also. This crying is very infectious. Weddings, victory and happy occasions makes you cry with happiness. Tears of joy are explicit display of your delight.
Tears depict you as very human and sensitive. When you are facing stifling problems in life crying lightens your heart. Crying should not become a habit as it makes people averse to you. But when you cry to show that you care, you are very human and very normal.
