Crying is a genuine expression of your emotions. The way you cry can’t be controlled, it’s pure expression. It takes a lot of bravery to do this.

You acknowledged the problems at hand and they made you sad. Or you have been holding in emotions, not treating or respecting them, they built up and became more volatile.

Let your tears flow with pride. If they stay in your body they will revert to poison.
