6 Reasons Why Crying Is Important

“God gave us crying so other folks could see when we needed help, and help us.” – Joshilyn Jackson

Crying is a natural human reaction to things but it is so often looked at as being weak. No matter how much we believe it to be weak it is still a part of being human.

I want to remind you why crying is important and why it isn’t something to be ashamed of.

  1. Crying can show you are struggling and can lead to getting the support you need
  2. Crying can indicate a feeling of sympathy for someone and make them more comfortable with their feelings
  3. Crying releases stress and unloads emotions
  4. Crying can lead to emotional bonding between two people and creating a stronger relationship
  5. Crying is healthy for the eyes and nose
  6. Crying improves your mood

If this list does not inspire you to get a good cry in then I am not sure what will. Crying is not weak, if anything it is a sign of strength. Being vulnerable requires a level of strength and courage that is unmatched by any showy.
