Even more importan than acting as stress relievers, tears attract help from other people. Researchers agree that when we cry, people around us become milder and less aggresive and they`re more likely to provide support and comfort.
Tears enable self-disclosure too; sometimes we dont even know we`re upset until we cry. We learn about emotions through crying, and then we can deal with them.
Just as crying can be healthy, not crying - hold back tears of anger or grief - can be sad for our bodies.
Doctor aren`t prescribing sob sessions just yet; how much we cry depend on genetic, gender and upbringing. But when you feel like weeping, dont fight it. Its a natural and healthy emotional response.
