When Do You Cry?
I cry when it means something. I don't understand, emotion consumes me, so sad my heart aches, or so happy my heart sings.
My husband and male friends feel perplexed when I suddenly cry and within mere moments I stop. For me, it's like a teapot that's reached a boiling point and spews to release the pressure and within a short time I'm balanced again.
Crying is a venting mechanism for stress that helps me keep a balance between my inner child and my adult self.
Of course, crying can be for other reasons and I'm not making generalizations for all, just sharing my most common reason.
The point? We all need to find ways to de-stress so there's a balance of our adult self and inner child.
