Today's Truth and Beauty: Crying is letting go of tears. En♥, -me!
Many of us encounter a mind manufactured "YIELD", "STOP", "DETOUR", or even "DEAD END" sign immediately after we pass the "CAUTION: CRYING AHEAD" sign along life's highways and by-ways. It is so customary to even go so far as to whisper and plead internally, while the tear ducts are filling to maximum capacity, "Don't cry. please don't cry." Whether the tears are classified as happy or sad, we often times greet them with hesitancy and aversion. It could be self-consciousness over vulnerability. It could be embarrassment. It could be undesired perception of weakness. It could be fatigue. It could be stubbornness. It could be intimidation. It could be just be a timing. Ultimately, it's fear. The truth and beauty comes in recognizing and releasing the self-imposed tension of fear and...just...crying. Crying is therapeutic. If for nothing else, consider that the body is a self-sustaining organism. Crying is an integral process that is directly connected to the body's drainage system. Tears are a saline lubricant necessary to facilitating the fluidity and seamless motion of your body parts. Crying is healing. No matter who, what, where, when, why, or how, when the tears come, go on; cry. Follow the sign that says, "Keep Going This Way."
"Crying doesn't indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive." – Unknown
