Hiding Emotions

 

Why do we try to hide when we cry?  As an adult we feel shame in our tears.  Is it fear of people knowing our business?  What happened to open arms, open hearts and open minds?

As a child we feel we need to let the world know that something is wrong or upsetting us or even scaring.   The innocence is taken  too soon for a lot of us.  We needn’t let go, we should hold on forever to that feeling of trust.

If we keep going this way we’ll all have to pay for the next man’s sorrows.  That is something we can all do without.

Let’s live life the way it was meant to be, help one another when the need is there.  Offer your friend, neighbor, relative or even stranger an ear or hand or shoulder to cry on.  We are human after all.

    You are correct, tears are not always a sign of weakness. Some emotions are just to powerful to keep inside. I cry happy tears sometimes, but i am very emotional. 🙂

    Tears mean we are still alive. Sometime releases tears allow the pain to become less. I like your thoughts on crying. Thank you.
