Why We Cry

According to sociologists,the 10 top tear-triggers are sadness, grief, loneliness, happiness, fear,pain, anger,sexual joy, laughter and hormonal imbalance. Studies have shown that a large percentage of women cry spontaneously three to five days before menstruation because of an imbalance between their o estrogen and progesterone levels.
Sometimes the trigger for crying is more obvious like a tense day at work or a difficult situation with a friend or guy that has been going on for a while. At other times, a bout a sobbing will be prompted by some past incident that you experienced which has left a residue a grief that was never fully resolved.
"If a hurtful memory is suddenly triggered by something in the present, crying about it can sometimes be more cathartic than talking."points out Gill Davidson. "It allows you to physically and emotionally release the memory so that you can let it go and then focus more effectively."

Why Do You Cry
The "why"of crying may seem obvious and straightforward: You're happy or sad. But that"s too simplistic.
"Crying is a natural emotional response to certain feelings, usually sadness and hurt.But then people also cry under other circumstances and occasions,"says Stephen Sider off.
For instance, he says,"people cry in response to something of beauty. There, i use the word "melting".They are letting go of their defenses, tapping into a place deep inside themselves."
Crying may have a biochemical purpose.It's believed to release stress hormones or toxins from the body, says Lauren Bylsma.
Crying also has a purely social function. It often win support from those who watch you cry.

Trying Not to Cry

Sometimes, it's just not cool to let the tear flow that you are trying to put up a brave face while accompanying a loved one to a medical treatment, for instance. Or your boss has just told you your hours will be cut in half.
