When you were a child, you were probably encouraged not to give vent to your emotions and cry. So, you bravely held back your tears. But a good weep is actually good for you – don’t let anyone persuade you otherwise.
If you bottle up your emotions without releasing it, the toxic wastes that are produced as a result of it, could, over a period of time, have a detrimental effect on your immune system, making your body vulnerable to innumerable diseases and afflictions.
So don’t be afraid or ashamed to cry your heart out – it is a fine way of unleashing your feelings, get them out of your system and start afresh. Sometimes crying can make you understand your emotions, whether you are crying for someone or something, or out of self pity. It even helps to give the eyes a good wash and clean them out. Ever thought of that before?
