Tears are your body’s natural system for emotional release. We cry in the situation of sadness, grief, anxiety, stress, frustration but also in happy emotional situations like proud moments of personal victory or even team or national success. These are emotional tears. Of course, emotional tears have a different effect than reflex tears on smoke or the wind. However, all tears are body protectors.
Nothing is embarrassing about crying. If you are in a high tense situation crying will not increase your stress level, but on the contrary, it will release and normalize hormone levels. Humans are the only creatures known to have this gift of emotional tears.
Here are some of the healing benefits of crying:
