Tears are a part of our lives which however we may deny never cease to disappear completely. We generally tend to associate tears with grief, sadness and loss although tears of happiness also exist. Tears clear our eyes and help us come to terms with reality of the world. A person who doesn’t cry in grief is more hurt than one who does. Tears are not a sign of weakness but they are instead a means of moving on in life. The memories associated with the unhappy memories can sometimes only be washed with the tears.
Tears shed for the wrong reasons and the wrong person may be a constant source of unhappiness. Tears are precious gems of the heart which should only be shed for someone/something who deserves it.
“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.” – Edgar Allen Poe
Without the tears we never realize the true meaning of happiness. An emotionally sound person needs tears as much as he/she needs laughter. Laughter and tears both are complementary; one cannot exist forever without the other. If we laugh a lot often tears come out of our eyes. Even moments of extreme joy also makes us cry.
“I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry”- Unknown
