Anything with life in this world has its own way to express its feelings. Be it an animal or a human being, every living being expresses its feelings and emotions in different ways. We express our happiness and joy through a smile and laughter, similarly vent out our sorrow and misery through tears. Crying is one of the best ways to give away one’s stress, sadness and melancholy. According to me, tears help a person to wash away the pessimistic feelings in one’s heart and make the heart feel lighter.
Crying can also be described not just an act of expressing one’s sadness but also to get rid of the burden of sadness. The tears from the eyes of a child when he falls down, or in the eyes of a mother departing from her children or in the eyes of a person in misery alleviate the feeling of pain and sorrow. In an optimistic view, tears are consoling a person to calm down and lessen the negative feelings in them.
Another noteworthy aspect of crying is the so called ‘tears of joy’. Unlike the tears of agony and misery, these ‘tears of joy’ arise from the eyes to symbolize a moment of joy and happiness. This is a natural involuntary response of a high dose of joy and happiness that one cannot control, and vents it out through ‘tears of joy’.
People look down upon men who cry. Crying is attributed to be a feminine feeling but what people don’t understand is that crying is something natural and there are no restrictions imposed on anyone to express their feelings.

這世上的每一個生靈都有表達自己感受的方式,但是他們的表達方式卻如此不同。我們用微笑或大笑來傳遞我們的喜悅,就像我們用眼淚來表達我們的悲傷。哭,是排解壓力、悲傷和憂鬱的最佳方式之一。在我看來,眼淚幫助我們沖洗掉那些負面的情緒,讓我們的身心重歸輕盈。
哭泣不僅僅能成為表達我們悲傷的方式,也是我們放下悲傷的一種途徑。一個孩子跌倒時的流淚,一個母親與她的孩子天涯兩隔時的流淚,一個人沈浸在悲傷中的流淚,幫助了他們減輕那份痛苦和難過。從一個樂觀的角度看,眼淚安慰我們,使我們放鬆下來,舒緩我們心中的負面情緒。
值得我們注意的是,還有另一種眼淚:「開心的淚水」。不同於悲傷時的流淚,高興的淚水代表著那些高興和幸福的時刻。當心中滿溢著幸福和感動,我們本能地,情不自禁地流下那高興的眼淚。
人們常覺得,男人不應該哭泣。哭泣似乎成了一種女性化的特質。然而人們不明白的是,哭是如此本能的一件事情。因此,我們不應該限制任何人用哭的方式表達他們的情緒。
