I find that the older I get
the more I cry.
Certain music moves me to tears.
Memories can easily make me weep..
I often think about the people I love...
I miss them so much
and it causes me to sometimes
sit alone and quietly cry.
Sometimes regrets make my heart ache
and cause tears to flow.
I regret things I didn’t do in life
and also regret things I did do.
I grieve over losses in my life
and crying helps me
get through the night.
But I find comfort in knowing
that crying is good for me.
And I’m not alone.
women cry 3.5 times each month
and men cry 1.9 times each month.
(I guess I’m above average)
Research has shown that
shedding tears is self-soothing and
releases oxytocin and endorphins.
These hormones (chemicals) make a
person feel good and help to reduce
emotional pain and also promote
a sense of well-being.
Simply said, crying has benefits.
I’m glad I’m able to do it.
