Here’s why you should never tell a person to “Stop crying.”


Crying is an emotion just like any other human emotion. There are happy tears and then there are tears of sorrow. When we see a person crying, irrespective of the fact that they are happy tears or sad tears, we tell them to stop Weeping. We do this because we believe that the person is in pain and nobody likes to see someone in pain. However, If you ever see a person crying you must console that person, but never say the words “stop crying” or “don’t cry.”

Here’s why you should let a person cry:

  • It makes them feel better

    When a person is crying it is a result of an outburst of emotions that the person has bottled up for a really long time. If a person is crying that means they are releasing their stress, fear, tension, frustration and anxiety, all of which, if bottled up can lead to chronic stress and depression. Weeping helps a person release their emotions and cleanses their system, which in turn makes them feel better.

    Crying does not have just mental benefits, but has physical benefits as well. Eyes tend to get dehydrated, not to mention a lot of dust and dirt tends to sit on the eyes. Weeping helps water surface on the eyes, which helps get rid of the dust and dirt, which clears and improves vision. Tears are also said to have strong antimicrobial powers which help kill bacteria.

  • Helps you overcome grief
