"CRYING" Why It's Okay To Cry

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

There's so much debate if it's okay for a man to cry, if that makes them strong or weak, etc. blah blah...

And not just men, women get it too from other women or even men ("women are over emotional"blah blah)

But there's lots of reasons people may cry. And who is anybody to say it's not okay?

Some examples of when tears are okay:

Loss/Grieving

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

Anytime you suffer the loss of a loved one, there's bound to be tears. But they can be tears of sadness, bittersweet tears, nostalgic tears. What they can't be is wrong... Everyone grieves in their own way and noone should ever be made to feel weak or wrong for that.

Empathy/Compassion

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

Some tears we shed are for the pain and suffering of others. That doesn't show weakness to me. That shows a kind, caring, compassionate person who doesn't always just think of themselves and their own happiness/unhappiness but cares about the happiness/unhappiness of those they love. And sometimes for any fellow human. Never something to mock, but rather admire.

Broken heart

I
I

I know I just did a mytake on break up jokes. But for some people, breaking up is no joke. The loss of love can be very hard and a broken heart can sometimes take awhile to mend. And it's okay to cry. Sometimes we need to cry to heal and before we can learn to laugh/love again

Billy Ocean said it better:

But the tears we cry, aren't always in sadness. Sometimes we can be so moved by love or a special moment in life that can move us to tears....

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

Birth of a child

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

To bring another life into this world is one of the most beautiful wonderful things in life. The first time they place that baby in your arms, or when that tiny bundle grabs ahold of your finger, it also grabs your heart. Tears of joy in a moment like that just makes it a beautiful moment.

I'm not ashamed to say I cried when my grandson was born. Although they were also tears of relief because my daughter had a traumatic delivery and it was a close call to her having a stroke. But, I'd of cried even without that.

Major milestones in a loved ones life can bring tears of pride and joy. They're also bittersweet because sometimes for some people those can also be the moments you miss those dearly departed who would otherwise be their to celebrate the joyous occasion.

And then we have my favorite kind of tears:

Laugh till you cry

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

Life can be very hard and stressful. We can all use that laugh till your sides ache, tears streaming down your face kind of moment sometimes. And those are the funny moments in life that you'll better remember.

I guess the points I'm trying to make are:

CRYING Why Its Okay To Cry

1. Tears are a result of emotions we may be feeling. And emotions are a normal natural part of life and being human. So why then do we try to shame someone for showing/having emotions?

2. Unless you have walked in someone's shoes, felt the pain they felt, lived the life they have... how can you/who are you to judge or say if it's okay for them to cry. Strength isn't not crying, strength is knowing when you need to cry, strength is living past the pain, strength is being yourself no matter who tries to knock or put you down.

    Yeah... I think about this sometimes. Honestly, I do believe that crying is at least a little bit selfish. Even at the loss of a genuine loved one, but especially if in front of others. I just feel there is some self-pity or desired to be seen and/or heard.

    Regarding anyone who cries, I do believe that it is weakness the more often it happens. Not in the sense that anyone who cries is weak, but simply their emotional threshold is more easily reached than those who cry less often. If something devastating occurred to my family - say they all were killed in a plane accident - I would be sobbing uncontrollably. The emotions were too strong for me to keep my wits and control of myself. Emotional overload = crying. I believe this is absolute in all cases.

    Do women cry more than men? I believe so... I think we all believe so. should women be considered special to my logic? No. But, perhaps it's because it is general instinct from super long ago for a man to offer protection to a woman in exchange for comfort. Perhaps there's the other side where the women shows more vulnerability to help attract/keep the man.

    Either way, women somehow cross the threshold of emotion (s) being controlled much quicker than men do. (I assume women resist crying like men do because crying isn't fun - so no one tries to cry except weirdos) Men, on the other hand, have had to show dominance (by instinct), and that means being tough - in the body AND in the mind. In that, men learn to control themselves better and gain some resistance to emotional overload. Over time, the child grow to be an adult in late 20s to late 30s with a high level resistance to emotional overload.

    Therefore, women are emotionally weaker in that their emotional threshold is not developed as a woman's is.

    So, exceptions everywhere, obviously. Ever met a woman who's had a tough life? That's usually a tough chick and she won't cry anymore - she's done with it, her control is hardened, and her emotional tolerance is high. Then there's the guy who's always emotional. I think every guy know at least one like this and because he cries, he's weaker, and pitied. In a wolf pack he'd be an omega. Other exceptions not excluded.
    Is this still revelant?
    • This answer is wrong on so many levels and exactly what this take is addressing...
      "Ever meet a woman who's had a tough life? Yeah ME! I've dealt with a lot of tough things in life beginning at the age of 5-6. I still cry when I feel the need.
      Men don't emotionally overload? What do you call it when men can't control their temper? Cuz anger is an emotion too!
      Tears don't determine strength or weakness.
      Crying at the loss of a loved one is selfish? Omg ok that is one of the most asshat thing I've heard. When my hubby died, I didn't cry at the funeral, but YOU DAMN RIGHT I cried when the casket bearing the man I loved/lived with for 20 years, the Father of my children, was being lowered into the ground. Not for attention, because everything but that coffin and my sobbing girls ceased to exist!
      Again this whole answer makes the point I was trying to make...
      Who are "you" to think you can judge or know what makes someone strong or weak until you been in someone's shoes.
      But thanks, cuz it also shows to the user that once again tried to use my post to blame"all" women, who said men don't cry cuz women judge them as weak... But it's men doing it to other men, not women.
      And people that judge/falsely label others, that's what's weak to me

      you should probably re-read it. your personal experience may differ, but if you cry all the time as a middle aged adult, you are weak or have something wrong with you. Do you see people on the news crying all the time? sure, when something shocking like the president dying or the space shuttle blowing up. For them, it has to be too much, because as adults we need to compose ourselves better than children do. You tell kids to stop crying all the time, so why don't you, seeings how your are an expert on the subject of crying uncontrollably all the time.

      Also, you took most of what I wrote out of the context in which I intended. The men don't cry thing was not real - clearly I've discussed men who cry. and they are the same as women who cry. you took a completely gender-free view on this and turned it sexist against women. Also, the minor part of being at least a little selfish it neutral in the simple sense that one is dwelling on their own despair. but, of course, you believe it is personal against you for some unstated reason that I would never know (nor care to).

      The female that goes through a tough life and is "tough" wouldn't be crying all the time. Your tough life still include the progression of your family, a marriage, children, obviously a place to live, food, internet (obviously), and about a billion other amenities. Such a tough life. People die - it fucking sucks, but it happens all the time. Your life sounds like a daydream to many people on this planet, including me, who grew up on the streets, hungry for food, and literally begging before I could join the army at 18. Did you do that? Would you consider a girl that never cries, tough? Would someone who's tough, always, be bawling his/her eyes out all the time? Rhetorical questions - don't bother answering.

      I know you've been waiting on a conclusion to this book, so here it is. Now that I know how sensitive and weak you are, I can use it to my advantage to cause damage. You don't know me, so I shouldn't have any impact on your emotional state, right? If that's true, nothing I say should bother you (unless you are weak emotionally). But here's the thing, you've lived a comfortable life. not to YOUR standards, but to just about everyone else in the world - which are much less fortunate than you. You DO feel sorry for yourself, even when it's for loss. the way you argue about it shows how much you are willing to defend that till the end. you are mad at me for pointing out your hidden secrets. More so, being overly emotional, or a weak person, you want to deny truth to anything that puts you out of your [artificial] spot light. You are so caught up with yourself you can't even read what I wrote objectionably. It's driven you to the point of wishing people wouldn't respond honestly to question literally asked to everyone. No wonder you feel like you've had a hard life - no one takes sympathy on you, which is probably the reason why you cry to begin with. Everyone knows that woman who cries just to get attention because she always wants to be in the center. And, yes, if you cry in front of people, there is some level of selfishness to it - just like when you cried at your husbands funeral.

    Crying is a scary thing to do when itโ€™s unexpected... just like laughing at an inappropriate time.
    Laughing could be deemed as being rude in a situation when actually it was a self defence mechanism for feeling awkward.

    Crying... is something we all do... wether we admit it or not. We all do it. What I find so sad about crying is that as a man they fear crying with each other. They all know they cried when their baby was born, or their mum died. But when do when chat with their friends and cry about their struggles in everyday life!

    Social media is constantly talking about mental health and I see most people post stuff about it... well I wonโ€™t say thatโ€™s bad. But sharing a post doesnโ€™t show you care. Call your mate... actually ask if heโ€™s ok...

    And foremost... we must remember when we see the person we never thought weโ€™d see cry actually cry... how lucky we are they feel comfortable to do so with us!

    Crying is strength! Every tear is a release...

    We are carriers of our tears. A bottle is a carrier of water... the bottle can only hold so much water until it explodes... once it has its drained if everything and ha to start again and fill up...

    Learn to release gradually and consistently...

    Weโ€™re all made of water anyway!

    Cry on! Let the tears flow... if no one is there to catch them... nevermind... perhaps next time youโ€™ll let someone drink

    It is always good to have a cry every so often, although the reason may not always be good but it is the release it brings.

    I think another reason would probably be someone's mental health issues. Like people who have anxiety disorders, depression, etc. tend to cry a lot because it relieves them of their stress, worry, anxiousness, fear, frustration, etc. especially during episodes and breakdowns (very much needed at those times).
    • I agree.. I don't get why people think crying is weakness, we ask have emotions, abd trying to just lock them up instead of releasing them and working through them is not healthy and not real strength...

    • Not only that, but most times it's much harder for people like that to control and manage their emotions how they're suppose to be. I know when I get really stressed I can look like I'm having a flu/fever, not just that but I also don't act as sweet when I'm like that (i get mean and that's not how i usually am). So yeah, I can definitely tell you both sides of when i didn't cry and when I did. I can honestly say that crying all that out was much better (and healthier) then letting things build up to a point where I could possibly say or do things I don't really mean to. I mean, sure, it's 2 hours of crying but that's the average time for most.

    That was a beautiful MyTake, bbb. I'm not ashamed to say that I've cried many times in my life for many reasons, not only in sadness or grief over a loss, but over things like empathy, love, nostalgia, happiness and beauty.
    I'm not a cry baby, but I do tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve. I've never broken down in public, but my eyes can well up and you can see emotion on my face, especially when I am overwhelmed by empathy, compassion, sadness or beauty, such as the beauty of great music.

    I don't see anything wrong with it. It's a release of emotions. I don't cry that much as I have a huge drumset that I take my anger out on. Whatever release works. Keeping it all in is illogical and pointless and can lead to results you don't want. I promise.

    I personally don't cry anymore and here why; tears are the body's way of letting other know your hurting. I once cried after my friend committed suicide in middle of my school. Nobody did anything besides giving me a pitiful look. I felt like a freak. Like I said tears let people know that you're hurt so why should I cry if I know nobody else will help?

    Crying is natural. Everyone at some point and for whatever reason has cried. I feel that it's necessary to cry, it's a release of emotional buildup, whether happy or sad or just had enough of what life has given you. Crying doesn't mean that you are weak or soft. Crying means that you are human that you care. Crying is good for the soul.

    Why do you think a tough man is so tough? Because he works hard to be tough so he can protect those that he loves so that he never has to feel the emotional pain of losing the ones he loves.

    What's this talk about crying? It's just a normal human behavior we should not have to talk about it. When I was a young man, I felt nothing could touch me.

I am crying because I care the oppositie is being indifference. Real men really care that doesn't make me weak but strong. The crying helps to release stuff that is building up. Sure perfect people don't cry they probably don't t really laugh also.

    Strong or weak, right or wrong, totally irrelevant. Is a man still attractive to a woman who has seen him breakdown and cry? No. Ergo men don't cry.
    Men not showing their emotions is a consequence of women's behaviour not ours.
    • Oh that's bull... My husband barely cried over 20 years cuz if that bull mentality. But when he was diagnosed and dying, I saw him tear up/cry when our kids were singing in a choir. Was it because they sounded so beautiful? Or perhaps maybe because he was crying for all those moments he knew he'd miss/not be there for in their life. Did I think less of him... Hell NO.. thought even more. And he was definitely one of the strongest men I've ever known, not just physically but by the strength of his character. And there may be women who put men who cry down, but there's many more who don't/wouldn't. And it was men who taught men it's not manly to cry not women...

      Shit.
      I encourage my man to cry because he needs to. He's been through so much hard shit. When he cries, I cry right there with him while holding his hand. I love him regardless. He is still a man regardless. He's attractive to me regardless. If anything, he's more manly than half the men out there because they refuse to show their crying side which tells me they're mindless drones playing into social norms rather than being true to themselves.

    • The thing that is far more masculine to me is not being afraid to cry. If a man is afraid to cry because he's afraid of judgement, so much for being a man. He's just a coward who's afraid to stray away from the herd of man sheep who drone on and on about how "hurr real men don't cry that's a bitch thing"

      It's sexist, offensive and the most disgusting thing anybody could do to a man. And any woman who imposes that standard isn't a real woman, they are also a brainless drone who adheres to social norms rather than promote a man to be himself.

  • I feel how I feel. There's no denying in that.
    My issue is with how women perceive that. One moment they say it's strong if men can cry. Until they do. Then it's the opposite (I saw this coming). I trust actions more because words are cheap. I'm not blaming anything or anybody for why it is the way it is. Can't argue with basic biology and centuries of evolution.

    There's no choice but to win or die trying. The price for winning can't be too high. If it means becoming single because of the crying, so be it. I'm not a robot and not a superhero. I'm a man, not a bionic!

    "To bring another life into this world is one of the most beautiful wonderful things in life."

    Gotta disagree right there. For me it's having sex with beautiful women! Sex with beautiful and sweet women is euphoric!
    • Now I have to disagree... Anyone can have sex... Not everyone can bring another life into this world... And sex is just in the moment. A life you helped create? A little person that will love you like no other. My grandson touched me/my heart in a way no sex ever could...

    It's all about context. In general, a man who cries in front of women is seen as a weak little insect.

    • Yeah that happens sometimes

    • mrgspoter

      But all my life though even if I'm on my own, I think it's strange maybe

    • Not necessarily weird... Some people just find it harder to cry or show their emotions... My older dau more like me, but my younger dau more like her dad was, can't or don't show emotion or cry as easy

    Some said that if we cry it lowers the burden from our mind and heart so it is okay to cry

    I think it's natural for human being bcz we are full of emotions
    • Exactly. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚

      I lost some one in the past at that time I cried a lot and even now when she came in my thoughts I cried and that's natural

    maybe for girls its ok to cry, but as a 22yr old man, its definitely fucking not ok for me to cry... i dont wanna look like a sissy
    • hatedbyall

      u can't deny a man (above 18) crying doesn't look at least slight gay?
      men should not cry... maybe if ur under the age of 11... then ok cry ahead... but a full grown man... with beard and testicles... jus looks pathetic and faggy crying... thats jus how it is, end of story

    • Really? My hubby was a physically built manly man and strong and rarely cried. But when he knew he was dying, the sight of our girls and his nieces and nephew singing in their choir brought him to tears. Did he look gay or weak? No, he looked like a man crying for all the tomorrows he'd never see... That's why you people need to just stop... Have that opinion for YOURSELF... Stop judging others when you don't know their story/their life!

    • hatedbyall

      well im not really talking about that, although id never cry at someones death.. its fine for him to cry at someones death, maybe he's jus a lot more emotional and caring than me... but i wasn't really talking about that,
      im talking about making guys cry as much as girls do... over anything... over a girl not liking you... over getting insulted... getting a buzz on the x factor... i jus mean if guys cried the same way and amount of times little girls cry... thats pretty fucking gay in my opinion... ur husband can cry at that by all means, im not judging

    I donโ€™t need a list of reasons of why itโ€™s okay for me to cry. Iโ€™ll just cry. Itโ€™s an emotion, itโ€™s normal. Bottling things up isnโ€™t.
    • Exactly.. Why I don't understand why people make such a big deal about it... Or think that defines someone as weak or strong ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

    • Because theyโ€™ve been conditioned by society and mostly the older generation to just โ€œrub some dirt on itโ€ or my favorite โ€œbe a man!โ€ which doesnโ€™t address the root cause of the problem at all.

    • Again... You're SAYING IT but I'm not SEEING it... So who's conditioned? To think "ALL WOMEN" are the root of all evil... Good luck with that ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Very true. Crying is part of our nature. When we hurt, crying should be expressed.
  • captain_voidwalker
    With the exception of funerals crying is not ok. Your an adult handle your shit
  • When ever you feel the need to. We are not your emotional judge and jury
    • I do. But there is people that act like judge and jury if a man should cry. Or he's not macho and all that. Or a wuss...

  • If you are a man , don't take the advice. Its only acceptable for us to cry in a circumstance like a funeral of a close relative.

    Crying WILL make you look less attractive to women, there are no ifs , ands or buts about it. It is what it is. Crying to a woman shows your vulnerable side to them, and women do not like vulnerable or weak-appearing men. They may comfort you but they won't be attracted to you. Women like to say things that sound nice, but female nature is very brutal and cold , especially when it comes to mate selection. Maybe they don't even know it and are delusional about their nature.

    So if you want to cry, do so in private. Not infront of other people. ANd don't expect for a special woman who will accept you despite such behaviour, its not gonna happen man, we just have to deal with it.
    • Funny that that's coming from a man... So men know more about women than the woman themselves... And then men wonder why they can't get/keepa woman, too busy going off asshat wrong stereotypes than the woman in front of you.. Yeah good luck with that

    • of course it comes from a man. You don't ask a fish how to fish, you ask a fisherman. You women say a lot of things and do the opposite. What makes you think we should believe you then, men aren't stupid. We have actual experience as to what happens when we cry in front of a woman. why do you keep lying?

    • you women need to start being more honest and direct instead of sending wrong or mixed signals.
      Ever since 50 shades of grey and now 365 days topped ratings for movies, you exposed yourselves.
      It wasn't men who gave all those views to those movies it was women. We now know you aren't innocent , nice angels, female nature is a lot more complex than that.

    Crying is a normal and healthy human response to many things.
  • Juggernautpunch
    It should be ok to cry but I don't feel the empathy when I do.
    • Sorry for that... But I think people these days have less empathy anyways unless it directly affects them

  • NeverEnds
    Not for stupid reasons
    When you cry it's supposed to be only when you are seriously hurt, in pain and need help
    It's a sign to others something wrong

    That's why i hate it when people cry over childish natters can't control they're emotions
    Cause it ruins it for when someone is really in pain and getting hurt and crying cause then it gets ignored when heard as nothing
  • Pearl845
    It is good to cry, because you express your feelings towards that person. X

    Well for us guys in general crying is for the weak, Sissy and losers.
    Guys do think that once you shade a tear it also means that you are worried, And hey we hate being like that. Since we where born knowing that we should be a strong sex.
    BT what I can say if am to lose my loved one I feel bad stay speechless. And I feel like crying I would run to the forest and cry out loud in vein. Or you can even kick the brunches roll down yu knw and let out that feeling.
    BT even on the other way around ladies do love seein g guys who at tiles get emotional and cry like. You know showing that they are feeling bad. Since it will show them how human you are.
    So when a time comes to shade a tear and
    worry do it my guys. It only shows how human you are and them girls love it too.
