Crying in Front of The Movies is a Sign of Strength
Some people cry loudly at the movies or in front of their television. Contrary to what may be thought by those who do not cry, it is not a sign of mental weakness, on the contrary.
Crying is not a sign of weakness
It’s stronger than you, when you watch a moving sequence in the movies, on television, or even in real life, tears are irretrievably in your eyes. When the lights come on, everyone tends to dry their red eyes immediately, so that nobody notices anything.
Society considers tears as a sign of weakness. It is, for example, very frowned upon to cry at work. Yet, the expression of emotions is essential in the mental construction of an individual, and it itself sign of great strength.
Empathy, generosity,altruism are qualities particularly present in those who have easy tear.
Tears are a sign of moral strength
According to researcher Paul J. Zak in the journal Psychology Today, this is scientifically proven. The moving scenes of the movies cause a peak of oxytocin in the blood. It’s the biological sign of empathy.
People who let themselves cry for example in front of the heartbreaking moments of Gray’s Anatomy are actually emotionally and morally strong people.
To cry is not to show weakness, it is to show understanding of the other, of a higher quality of observation, and of more strength. And in fact so as not to be overwhelmed by emotion, and to relativize what we see, we need the mental and physical capacity to fight against this too full of empathy. In the same way crying in public is a sign of great self-confidence.
