One's First Emotion - CRY

All the emotions one day were discussing, who would wear the “crown of emotion”.  All were putting forth their point, Happy said “I am the most used emotion, be it natural or fake but I am always there, so I deserve to have the glory”.  All others fell silent, after all it was very true fact put forth by Happy. 

But few seconds later Surprise said “I shake’s person mind, so I rule most of the people, be it good or bad I dumbstruck them for few seconds so I am also equally deserving for the crown”. And then again nobody had the answer, but Cry courageously said “I am the first emotion experienced when person comes to world, and I am there, be it a happy moment or sad one, I am connected to one’s heart”. Without any further discussion Cry was crowned the king of emotions.

Don’t you agree with this, that Cry deserve to be crowned? 

Crying is such an emotional moment that whenever happens cleans your eyes, in turn which clears your mind to give a fresh start, to which Dionne Warwick beautifully said Crying is cleansing. There's a reason for tears, happiness or sadness.” 

Crying is done in contrast reasons such as when we are extremely happy, eyes are filled with tears unknowingly? And when heart is emotionally low then too tears roll out. Person comes to the world in crying state (if not cried then made to cry for scientific reasons) and when person leaves the world, rest of the people weep for that person. When you achieve goals you cry out of happiness and out of unbelievable feeling and if you lose by a notch then too you cry thinking all the hard work has gone in vain. 

Wow! How wonderful this emotion of crying is which touches our soul.
Tears connect our soul

And moreover crying is such a simple way to convey a message that even new born and toddlers used it express their feeling with various degree of crying. But as we grow up, we tend to hide this particular emotion from others for variety of reasons. Some say that crying will showcase them as weak person. 

“Crying doesn’t indicate that you are weak. Since birth it has always been a sign that you’re alive”. We also cry when we don’t have words to expresses our feelings. Many would agree that for once you may forget with whom you laughed out, but one doesn’t forget who wiped your tears. Apart from that crying shows that you have heart which cares, as Elizabeth Gilbert marvelously quoted “Do not apologize for crying, without this emotion, we are only robots.”
Lastly I don’t say that crying is best to do in all situations, but when you are heavy hearted and want to lighten it, cry your heart out, you will feel much better. Alfred Austin Beautifully quoted that “Tears are summer showers to the soul.” 

Don’t make crying you weakness instead make it your strength to win over ups and downs of life, with new hope, with new targets to accomplish and with a fresh start as everything is now washed out with tearsJ)

“Crying is all right in its way while it lasts. But you have to stop sooner or later, and then you still have to decide what to do.” - C.S. Lewis

  1. Excellent...nicely portrayed...

  2. A fine argument in favour of 'crying.' But one thing, why don't we see men crying! Even when his mother or wife dies, he hardly sheds tears.
