What Makes A Man Cry! Lack of Emotions
In the Beginning
It's always been said that women’s most powerful weapon is tears in a sense they use tears when needed as a defense mechanism, and it’s been said too that women’s tears are flood which swallows the best swimmers! People say that tears are only for women and they cry faster than men do, but the question is: when do men cry? How? Why?
Crying or weeping has many benefits, emotionally and physically, and it is indeed a mechanism whether used as defense or some kind of external reaction to outside fear or maybe joy! Human is the only animal that shed tears (aside of course from the famous crocodile tears…etc).
On the science thing, tears are considered a means of body cleansing where the toxins tend to slide out with the tears. That’s why (if you’ve ever cried) feel really comfortable and relieved after a weeping session. And by the way, according to some scientists, the composition of a teardrop is so complicated and amazing that tears generated out of a sad movie are different from those generated out of fear or joy.
Many people especially men consider that crying is “a thing” that women only do and crying for men is unsuitable or unmanly which is extremely wrong. Some men consider crying as weakness and they should not reveal it. Crying is a natural way of stress expression as we unintentionally release loads and loads of pressure, frustration, and many kinds of chronic anxieties due to our fast and hectic life. All the aforementioned negative emotions are terrible and inhabitants of the health as well as functions of the brain. Suppressing this natural process may really lead to a depression disorder, anger, and disorientation.
I don’t cry a lot, I’m not denying it, but sometimes, I just look for a tear but can’t find it. Is it because we became callous in the wooden age or we have now many things to worry about, more important than facing our faces in the mirror of life? I remember I was watching the movie Hachiko starring Richard Gere (which is the greatest recipe for crying by the way), and I felt there is a volcano inside of me waiting for eruption, but since I wasn’t alone in the room, I waited till the movie was over to go to the other room and LET GO.
So, it is natural and it is humane; some people cry of hunger others of love, some cry the loss of a beloved person and some of meeting a person and so on. Finally, let this be an invite to cleanse our souls a bit… Do you agree?
