How Crying Help To Relieve Stress?

Updated on March 5, 2013



Actually, if you shed one tear, another salty droplet of moisture will appear; and again, and again. Again and again. Until those tears will escape from the pain and from the hurt.

It may hard to admit as it seems, we are not made strong all the time. We may not cry for a little butterfly that fell from the flower and die, or cry when nobody remembers our special day. But, there are episodes in our life that we need to wash our eyes with tears, in order to see clearly. Our emotion needs to be wipe out by such moisture to see the view and bring that jolly and joyful attitude again.

Health wise, crying helps release stress. It can help to wash chemicals linked to stress out of our body and also help release tension and stress, as well as expressing emotions.

For crying out sake, cry if you must. It doesn't make you less like a woman or less like a man. Jesus Christ cried, weep even. How much more us?

So what's all this fuzz about convincing you to cry?

Maybe because I hardly cry myself and just few moments back---pressure in life just hit my "tear reservoir". Okay, drama? Yeah, you can call it like that. Even a happy go lucky and don't care too much about what people say do have tears. When was the last time I cried? I can't even remember. It was as if the world turn into an ocean. I couldn't stop myself from crying, or weeping. How did it happen? I didn't know. I just did it. And, I was glad I did. It was like a prayer saying, "God..where are you?". One teardrop. Then, more. Until I couldn't stop.

Growing up, I always thought that crying will makes me weak. So before one teardrop swelled in my eyes, I had to bite my lips and held back the tears. I did it so many times until I was good at it.

How come just a while ago, I flooded the room with tears and white napkins? Call it I don't know. Or maybe, hurt?

So there's more to hurt than shed-me-some tears? Perhaps? Maybe because, the friends and family that you thought who would stick with you and I back-you-up whatever you do has the power to hurt you.

So what do you do?

Cry. Yes, cry. At least, it helps. And, when you're ready to face your friends and family again--telling the truth is one step closer to feel better and alive again.
