And, for you guys out there who think crying is for sissies, I beg to differ. I don’t want you guys to make crying a HABIT, because, well…that can be a downer….but tears are not exclusive to females or babes in arms – OK?!
Life has snags, offers up huge and nasty potholes, provides us with people who create havoc in our psyche and emotions, and things generally just “go wrong” more often than we want. …Oh, did I mention that physical pain occurs too?! Oh yes, there are a lot of reasons for a guy to cry. I believe if you, as a male, took it upon yourself to let the floodgates loose once in awhile, you’d be healthier for it.
Tears can relieve stress more quickly than you can imagine. Think about it: tears are cleansing.
We all have the capability to find answers to our questions and work on cleaning out sorrow in our hearts. Sometimes it takes more time than we wish, and at other times we don’t know where to begin. I think a few tears rather than slapping and hitting are definitely healthier answers. This afternoon was our turn to sit together, holding hands and yes…tears came. Half a bucket-full – not a whole bucket-full. I hope that we’ll begin to feel a little better. That would be nice.
