Of Tears and other Feelings

"Crying - What else are lacrimal glands for?"

Well I can think of a few things:

  1. First of all for doctors, I mean they always need something to analyze.
  2. If we want to be clowns and don't have a flower that can squirt water. 

No, but seriously. The big deal about tears is not that people cry.

Everybody poops cries.
At some point or another in their lives.
I think we've established that.

But it's the way we make other people feel, when we cry... 

There is a certain weakness about crying that makes it almost frightening to watch.

We confront them with a personal side of us that is the Pandora's Box of feelings which according to them should only be opened, if absolutely necessary. Possibly Never.

Most people don't know how to react or comfort our tears.
And all we do, is put our feelings at their mercy and yet, we are helpless ourselves to make the tears stop.

They're uncomfortable because we put them in a position they can't just walk away from.
It's that sudden responsibility we put on them. 

Tears have a whole lot of emotional baggage inside of them. Stress. Heartbreak. Losses. Or just plain emotional discomfort.
It's the people which call others "crybabies" that feel the least in touch with their own emotions in general. So how are they supposed to help us when they can't even handle their own feelings?
And who are we to expect them to do so in the first place?

That's the actual reason why crying in public is discouraged.
