Did you know that crying has health benefits? According to Science. "Crying activates the body in a healthy way." It relieves stress while you are on your high emotions. It also helps you to produce manganese, which helps to manage your moods. Crying also activates the parasympathetic nervous system and restores the body to a state of balance. So when after you cry. You feel a lot better and more comfortable about yourself. Now we have all the reasons to cry. We will not be a shame to cry for the heartbreak that we shed, but also for one good reason, it helps us to alleviate stress.

I rarely cry but at times I'm heading that way when I see or hear something very sad but I am usually able to control it.

It is a lot better other than hiding the sad feelings right?

@JustBhem Right, the body was designed to cry over sad things and happy things. It is interesting that the Bible mentions Jesus crying.

I do not cry. I will use the eye wash to clean my eyes when necessary. I think the modern life encourage people to hide their feelings, and not cry when they feel sad.

Do you think it's safer to hide your feelings other than open it by crying? Doctor once told me that if I feel like crying, I need to cry. It helps me to feel better and my heart.

@JustBhem Crying does not make me feel better. Doing things make me feel better. When I am sad or just feeling down, I have to do something to make the feeling go away or to change into a positive thought.

@JustBhem No it doesn't matter to others why I cry and if I have any sort of problems. So I try to keep things to myself.

I am an emotional person. I can even cry because of a sad movie or story. I guess at least I may drop tears for once a month?

I didn't know it produced manganese. I don't even know what manganese is or what it does. A brain chemical thing I guess. Who knows I might need some. Can you test for it?

What kind of test? As I mentioned manganese helps you to manage your moods when you cry. That is why we feel better.

@JustBhem I meant I wonder how you would know if your chemicals are balanced? And where does manganese come from? I find this stuff so interesting. Thanks for posting it.

@Bluedoll I never research for it. All I know is that Manganese helps you balance your emotions. So if after you cry, you feel a lot better after shedding tears.

I do cry...but I am a fighter...is there something I can do about it...what needs to be done about this situation...That is the way my thinking goes. So after having shed a few of my precious tears, I tell me, hey, I am more intelligent than that ...I need to show the world a way out of this situation and I get down to business. lol.

Cool. Being stronger doesn't mean we need not to cry. I've been through a lot and being strong is the best way I can, but I still cry. I cry a lot whenever I feel alone and lonely, being forgotten or forsaken, I cry when I read a sad story or watch a sad movies.

I cry when I cannot endure the body pains but the last time that I cried was when I had a misunderstanding with my HA; we patched up after several minutes

I don't easily cry . . . in order to shed tears to feel good and to eliminate stress and depression, I always volunteer to peel off and chop ONIONS!

I don't usually think of crying as a weakness... but I cry about EVERYTHING. When I'm angry, sad, even when something has touched my heart. I can't watch Grey's Anatomy with my roommates because I BAWL. How embarrassing is it that I start to cry when I'm watching The VOICE! with my mom because other peoples dreams are being crushed? SUPER embarrassing lol I've always wanted to be a vet but i didn't follow through on that because I knew I would cry too much hahaha It's annoying and embarrassing but I do always feel better after a good cry :)

Yes. I also cry a lot. Movies, If I see old people still working, if my nephew is sick, if I feel alone and empty, I feel sad. I cry because I know I will feel better after.

Even the greatest man, Jesus cried - he felt sympathy for his friends who had lost their brother- and still he was able to do something for the brother. Jesus woke up his friend Lazarus!

Interesting information. Crying is only one way to release stress and it is really necessary in some situations. It is already a long time ago since I cried, so long that I just cannot remember when it was. It depends of each own lifes' situation you can use one or another method to release your stress.
