Tears Are Nothing More Than Our Wounds Evaporating

· February 12, 2017

Let you tears out, let the salt and water close your wounds, and let everything that hurts and upsets you go away with each drop. Let your body feel and the feelings flood you so that you can keep moving forward, so that you can live your life to the fullest.

Do not hide when you cry, do not be afraid to show your vulnerability, for other people to see that you are feeling things to the depths of your soul and that you are not afraid to express this. Tears are necessary sometimes, they cannot stay inside; sooner or later they will come out, which is why you should let them flow and peace invade you.

“When feelings are finally expressed, they make you cry, it’s as simple as that.”

-John Lennon-

Learn to cry, to let your tears flow

Tears should not make us feel bad; quite the opposite. In fact, if we think about how we feel after crying, we will see that we feel relieved, comforted, and that we can smile again.

Therefore, it is important to learn to let our tears flow, beyond the prejudices and fear of what other people might think, which is why we are going to talk about the benefits of tears, of letting our feelings out.

They help you know yourself

When we cry, our tears help us reflect on ourselves, on what is worrying us, on what we are and the reason for our sadness, but it also helps us have a new perspective on what really matters, beyond the little worries of our daily lives.

We all know what upsets us and there are many ways to let it out: talk, walk, reflect, write out our deepest feelings. In short, it is a matter of not being afraid to express ourselves.


They are a way to ask for help

Crying can be a way to attract attention and ask for help. Maybe the time has come for someone to listen to us and make us see everything differently, or maybe we need a big hug.

And if the sadness persists and the tears do not stop, maybe it is time to ask for professional help to overcome that mood.

“Nobody deserves your tears, but whoever deserves them will not make you cry.”

-Gabriel García Márquez-

They release stress

Tears release our stress. After crying, we feel better since crying is a way to release tension, to let out what is pressuring us. Feel how your tears come up to the corners of your eyes, and let them out so that all of your anguish will go away, so that the world can become fuzzy for a moment only to be seen clearly a few seconds later.

Those who do not know how to weep with their whole heart don’t know how to laugh either.”

-Golda Meir-

They let you connect with other people

When we cry, we show our vulnerability, and although someone may think that crying is a sign of weakness, it is really a sign of courage, the courage to appear exactly as we are, with all of our faults and virtues.

Couple Hugging

When we cry, we can feel like other people, even strangers, are closer, friendlier. Tears bring us together and connect us with other people to feel more human.

Don’t judge your tears

Crying is not for the weak, it is human and brave. We often have the idea that men must not cry because they are showing weakness, but really what crying shows us is the courage to let go of our feelings.

Women, on the other hand, are sometimes seen as overly sensitive and tend to hold back their tears so as not to show sensitivity and exposed feelings.

But we must remember that showing our feelings in whatever way necessary is something good and essential for our mental and physical health.

Letting our worries remain inside us can create a profound discomfort, so let go of your tears, let your wounds evaporate and close up with each drop that slides down your face, and never be afraid of your tears.

“Do the tears we never cried await us in little lakes? Or in invisible rivers that run toward sadness?”

Pablo Neruda
