It is an emotion and so we cry for joy, sadness, because we are tired and it released some of those pent up emotions which surface in all of us from time to time. Actually crying is good for people particularly those who are depressed as it releases some of the pent feelings.Do u agree

It is good for a person to cry. It doesn't make sense to keep things all bottled up inside you. Crying in good for you.

Humans cry for many reasons as I will cry even when I am happy about something. If something or someone makes me overly happy, I tend to cry. I cry when I am feeling very sad about the loss of a friend or family member. Crying is natural and is good for all of us to do. We should not be afraid to cry in public or with our loved ones. It is healthy to cry as long as it is not done too much.
