    I have always had trouble crying. I have not thought about this as deeply in the past as I have been thinking about it lately. I knew that crying made me feel bad about myself. And I have come to understand through the emotional healing process the different ways that I was not given permission to ‘feel’ when I was growing up.

    Never.  We all need the release sometimes and it is a natural emotion.  It is good to cry and sometimes there are situations where it is necessary and healthy to cry.

    No, not at all.  Sometimes if I cry when other people are around I feel a little embarrassed as I am fairly reserved.

    Depends on what I crying for. An example would be when I accidentally plan two dates on the same day I didn't mean to do it, the whole thing was a misunderstanding.

    No crying at times is even good to burst out our emotion in a major way.  Releasing our mood by crying is sure way to relax as well.  Above all, it cleanses our eyes too and often advised by doctors  to do so.

    We cry for various reasons:
    When we are happy
    When we are sad
    When we are angry or frustrated
    When we are hurt

    We cry at weddings, births, funerals and graduations, etc.

    Crying when angry or frustrated is an emotional release.  Better to let the angry and frustration out then to direct it towards another person

    As a man, there was a time that I was ashamed to cry. But as I learned to put emotion into my music and my acting, I began to see the benefits of being emotionally balanced.
    My emotional side helps me to take my audience on the journey with me as I sing.
    I have learned that God created emotions in us for a purpose. When I struggled with depression, tears were part of the healing process but anger was also part of the healing process.
    Our emotions are an outward sign of our internal battles, and I for one am glad that I can show my emotions freely.
