The healing power of tears
“What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul.”
- Jewish proverb
When was the last time you had a really good cry? You could have been very happy or very sad. We cry tears of joy when celebrating our loved ones. We cry tears of sorrow when experiencing misfortune in our lives. Crying is a form of therapy that provides us with numerous benefits. There may be times when we feel compelled to hold in our tears, but the science tells us we should let them flow!
