Many people believe that if they openly express their emotions, it’s a sign of their weakness and they’d rather keep them to themselves and look strong in front of others. But why is bottling up your emotions better than facing them head on?


We’ve become so afraid to show emotions because we think it will make us vulnerable to the world. Society has made us believe that opening up will lead to us getting hurt, that others will take advantage of us and that it’s so much better to just make everyone believe that nothing can touch us.

And it’s completely understandable to be scared, there are people who will want to take advantage of us, there will be people who will want to hurt us or make fun of us. But we shouldn’t let the cruel people of this world dictate our behavior. After all, bottling up your emotions is really detrimental for our mental health so if not for other reasons, we need to learn to express our emotions for the sake of our sanity.

Instead of locking our feelings up, hiding our emotions and pretending that everything is just fine, we need to shout out loud that we’re not OK. We need to show the world that even though we’re strong and independent, it’s OK if we cry sometimes because ignoring those feelings will only increase our pain and maybe even lead to depression.

We need to stop thinking that crying will make us weak because it’s not a sign of weakness but a sign of emotional intelligence. Crying can actually help you process your feelings and promote your mental and physical health. Expressing your feelings means that you’re not scared to face them and it makes you stronger. Crying openly in front of others just shows that you’re strong enough to face your deepest emotions. It means that you’ve matured emotionally and that you can face every challenge that comes in front of you without fear.

Moreover, crying helps you let go of all the negative emotions you’ve been keeping to yourself and helps you channel the pain and anger in a healthy way. Letting it all out makes you calm and you feel immediate relief, no matter what caused you to start crying in the first place. It gives you the mental cleanse you so desperately need so that you can restore your inner peace and feel yourself again.

Crying promotes your physical health as well, it helps you relieve stress, improves your sleep quality and even improves your vision too. It helps fight the bad bacteria in your body and boosts your immune system.

Moreover, crying in front of others encourages them to face their own feelings and shows them that there’s nothing wrong with being open about how you really feel. The people closest to you can see that embracing their feelings is not something they need to fear or be ashamed of. When you let your emotions run their natural course, you inspire others to do the same.

There’s nothing wrong with crying or expressing your emotions, once you accept this, you’ll feel relieved and liberated.

Crying makes our emotions,mind and body healthy, how you wonder when the baby goes out of the mother they make it cry to have know the health of their body, just as same as adult, crying helps us be reactive on our emotions and feeling, getting out of tears makes you a vulnerable person and makes you think to move on on whatever happens in your life.
