Does anyone ever feel the need to cry? I’m talking about literally feeling a need to cry for no particular reason. I do; I sometimes feel the need to cry and I think crying is just as important as laughing. You don’t have to be sad or depressed; you can be perfectly happy and still have to cry sometimes. When I haven’t cried for a while and feel the need, I just picture all sorts of scenarios, be they happy or sad, just to make myself cry. I feel liberated afterwards and sometimes I even learn things from the experience. I learn about what genuinely moves me and why, and it helps me know myself a little better and realize how I feel about certain things that I’ve never really experienced or had to think about.
Everyone says how much laughing helps, and how everyone should smile, laugh and be happy that way. I think crying is just as important. I think the world would be a much better place if people cried more often, I honestly do.
When’s the last time you cried?
