Why Crying Does NOT Make You Weak

I cry a lot. No seriously, like at least once a week. Sounds depressing, right? Lol actually, not at all.

I’m a firm believer that crying does not always equal sadness. To me, crying can be an expression of many things. Happiness, sadness, stress, anxiety, joy, love, fear and a combination of lots of those things.

When I cry it’s because I want to. I don’t feel ashamed of it because I’m a man. I don’t feel ashamed of it because “it’s a sign of weakness.”

I’m actually learning early on that crying doesn’t have to be a negative thing because it shows that you are in touch with your feelings and that you care. It shows that you’re comfortable with your emotions and that you allow yourself to feel exactly what you feel in that moment.

Instead of viewing crying as a negative thing in life, I encourage you to embrace it whenever it comes upon you next. Your brain and your body is expressing those emotions for a reason. Be kind to your body by allowing yourself to express those feelings for exactly what they are. ❤️
