LGLWSM Newsletter 069 - How Crying Helps You!
May 31, 2013
There is no better release than having a good cry! I’ve been doing a lot of it lately because things simply aren’t going as well as I had hoped! While it’s a little embarrassing to admit, I know that it’s always darkest before the dawn, which gives me hope!
Life can be tough! Sometimes it just gets overwhelming when you have too much responsibility and not enough time in a day. Still, I know that things will get better if given enough time! What must go down, must eventually go up, right? That’s a basic law of attraction!
There are very few people who actually look forward to crying though. We’ve been taught to suppress tears because they’re seen as a sign of weakness or not keeping emotions in check, which is totally bogus! I don’t know about you but I always feel a bit better after letting out a boo hoo or two!
Crying helps heal your heart and helps you let go of daily frustrations. It’s a cleansing of fears, disappointments, or even anger! It’s so much more beneficial to sob a little than to yell at someone. Anger is a dangerous emotion that only encourages more negativity. (and tremendous amounts of corisol flooding into your system!) Tearing up on the other hand, can bring about compassion or heart felt empathy from others around you, if you allow them to see your raw emotions. Putting things into perspective, crying is a much more productive way to deal pent up emotions!
Crying also has perks for your health.
Here are a few of the top benefits of welling up from time to time.
Could you imagine not having tears to help remove pollutants or clean out your eyes after cutting up a pungent onion?
Fighting off germs is a huge benefit because most people wipe or rub their eyes on a regular basis! Your eyes fight pathogens of all kinds that you can pick up from shopping carts, public restrooms, computer keyboards, etc. Ew!
When you have a good emotional cry, your tears remove those toxins from your body, which alleviates at least some of the negative side effects of stress.
Emotional tears contain 24 percent higher albumin-protein concentrate, (responsible for transporting toxins out of your body), than irritation tears.
Those negative emotions build up in the limbic system of the brain and in certain areas of the heart. Crying is cathartic in the sense that it helps reduce negative emotions that can cause both nervous and cardiovascular problems.
People need to cry. It helps release pessimistic feelings in a productive way.
Crying helps lower anxiety levels because they help remove some of the harmful chemicals in your body. Suppressing tears (holding them back) increases anxiety and contributes to heart problems, ulcers, high blood pressure, and indigestion.
About half way through my day, someone asked me what was wrong! I suppose they could tell I wasn’t feeling well! I immediately started bawling like a baby. I couldn’t hold the tears back... and once I started, I couldn’t stop! Argghhh!
The response and support I got from regular shoppers and other employee’s was overwhelmingly positive. Although I was horribly embarrassed, there were a lot of good people who came to my assistance! (My boss totally ignored me though! Growl!)
So in a sense, crying can help you get through the most difficult of times by making others respond to you with compassion. Sometimes a little love can bring you out of a real funk!
So next time you want to strangle someone, have a good cry instead, then get some well-deserved rest. Humans were not meant to deal with all the challenges and stressors of today’s complicated world! Everyone needs an emotional release every now and again, which makes crying a very good thing!
