TEARS: good or bad?
CRIER: yes or no?
Quite often, when we cry, it makes others feel uncomfortable. They aren’t sure how to respond.
Do they comfort or try to console? Do they try to speak words of encouragement? Do they tell us not to cry? Or do they listen and “be” with us?
I cry at nearly anything. The Hallmark commercials? Movies? Of course.
When I pray for someone? Yes.
When someone prays over me? Most definitely.
It’s not something I can control, although it can be embarrassing, let alone coming at unexpected or inopportune times.
I like to think God’s given me an empathetic and compassionate heart, but sometimes it feels like a curse!
I’ll cry when I’m happy, too.
God says He collects our tears, and one day there will be NO MORE tears.
Crying can be a good and necessary form of release. Some say being emotional is our superpower!
For those of you non-criers? What do you say? I’d love to hear from criers and non-criers, alike.
