I used to hate crying... because I wasn't in touch with my sensitivity or my emotions and I viewed crying as being weak.
Now, I have come to honor those parts of myself. Anytime we feel deeply enough to cry is an opportunity to learn something about ourself... to see what we care deeply about, to become aware of a something that needs attention or wound that needs healing, or just to get in touch with our emotions.
I don't know about you, but I don't just cry when I'm sad or hurting. I also cry when I feel deep love or am overcome with a strong wave of gratitude.
Tears are cleansing and healing. Tears create awareness. Tears honor our deepest sources of awe, gratitude, joy and love.
