I think crying is one of the best gifts that God has given to us.When we are very sad and no one can console us,Crying helps a lot .It helps to accept with the facts. Yes i have experienced this when i feel very bad i start crying and don't wanna meet any one. With in a day or 2 what ever grief or sorrow happened to me will be accepted by me and i will be trying to be normal person after those one or two days.

HI Deepika, Yes you are right crying helps us in many ways. If you have any emotion in your hear and not able to express then your eyes start crying and with every tear your emotions come out. They help in reducing stress. Makes your heart light. And one more and important thing, they are with you always.. Happy Life...

Though many people see that crying is a sign of weakness, I believe that it is nothing more than a mere reaction to a stimulus...may it be great sorrow or profound happiness. I usually cry when I'm sad though I don't want to have an audience while I'm at it simply because I don't want to explain myself. I guess this is a common reaction for most people. It's a way to relieve ourselves of the heavy emotions that keeps on piling up every time we are under stress. It helps to alleviate our excess emotions such as anger, violence and sorrow.

I personally think crying is a great thing to do, as for me it lets all my bad emotions out when i have a good old cry. After crying i feel completely normal and like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders, which is a fantastic feeling to have :) i think crying is good, and anyone who says they don't cry, of course you do! everyone does atleast once in their lifetime lol

I agree with you. Crying helps us a lot. It makes us able to express whatever that made us want to cry and after crying you feel relieved. It is a gift that is oftentimes forgotten and avoided by most of us. But it usually eases us up. Some people are just so hard on themselves that crying makes them feel weak but it does not at all. It is better to cry than to pretend you do not need to cry.

crying is very helpful especially when we experience pain or hurt. It can somehow lighten up our feelings. I do cry in front of my family whenever i feel hurt. its just that im used to that.hehehe. i think it is much better to cry to someone whom you can lean on. It feels a better.

Sometimes,crying is helpful to relieve our feelings,and help to wash our eyes. While sometimes,crying may be let down by others. They will think you are cowardly if you always cry when you meet problews.In a word, it depands on occasions.

For me crying also helps a lot in my dealing with problems. After I cry I can have a little relief with my current burdens. Though directly crying does not solve our problems but it helps us emotionally so we can handle well our burdens.

Hi deepika, i too agree with your views. crying does help a person to come to terms after a while with their personal tragedies. It is not good or healthy to bottle up ones feelings. It tends to come out in other perverse ways like leading to bitterness and a general animosity towards others, so crying is healthy where you are dealing with your sorrows yourself and later coming to terms with your life, when most probably the worst will be forgotten..

i think crying is so good as its a way where you can release the sadness you felt, and all the feelings that your encountering. specially when your sad its a relief way to let it out through crying. if you hurt you can cry and have a little relief from crying even though it doesnt totally help a lot but it help you release your bad feelings. happy mylotting!!!

I've heard somewhere that crying uses a multitude of facial muscles thus offering a better blood flow and thus in the long run a younger face. This sounds kinda creepy though, as people usually do not tend to cry in order to look better but because something terrible has happened to them. Let me assure you I'd rather look old than crying for life's bitterness.

Crying does seem to be very healing and helpful. I allow myself to cry when I need to because I know I will feel better after a good cry. I even believe there might be something healing about the tears themselves. I prefer to rub them right back into my skin rather than blot them away with a tissue.

Yes, thats true.For me, crying is very important to us.Without crying, it makes a full of sadness. So, when we cry it feels like a birds flying on the sky and make fells very happy.

BEing a normal individual i do cry also. But not just being depressed or being sad. it also suggests being overwhelmed or being happy in a sense that you be thankful enough to have something worth for it...

All depends on the situation and person. You got ppl that cry for everything, or to get things done. Then its not good. But if you really got hurth, or you just at the bottom of things then crying can be a verry good relief.

When I feel so helpless already, I cry. The heavy baggage in my heart feels lighter when I cry especially if there is someone next to me listening while I am crying or just there to rub my back and comfort me. Crying is better than controlling yourself, it will make you sick if you will just keep the pain and stress inside. They said boys dont cry, the truth is they cry more but they just dont want us to see their weakness.

Yes you are right. Crying is a gift. First it will clean your eyes and second it will reduce tension. So if you cry regularly it will be good for your eyes. I cry regularly because I am very emotional but it turns out good for my eyes. I never felt any eye related problem and moreover all the tensions go away in a minute. Happy crying :(
