There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love. ~~ Washington Irving
I like this.I've always cried very easily. I always felt like it was a sign of weakness and surrender. Now I feel empowered. Who says emotions are bad?
It really is true that tears are messengers. They let us know that something BIG is going on inside. Grief, love, anger, frustration. When tears flow we'd be wise to pay attention, settle down, and try to understand. Whether they are our tears or the tears of others. Much revealed there.I cry easily, too. You and me. Twins!
I've always been sensitive to the tears of others. I just wish it was reciprocated. I only hear: "Suck it up." or "Now what?"
Sometimes I just go cry alone - then I am free to explore my tears without those judgments and expectations. Life is surely complicated, isn't it.
This bought tears to my eyes. Beautiful. I think sometimes tears are like prayers going up to God. I do.
Gardenia, yes, tears are a form of prayers. I heartily agree. At times they speak better than words.
