Let It Flow – Tears

How wonderful it feels to give in and let tears flow when we are overwhelmed with emotions, whether we are happy or sad. Tears come from the soul, from our well of feelings rising from deep down. When we give in to the prickling behind our eyes and the lump in our throat to let teardrops fall from our eyes, we allow our feelings to surface so they can be set free.

Proud parents shed tears of pride in a child’s accomplishments, a baby’s first step, birthdays, and graduations. Long lost friends fall into each other’s arms, tears rolling down their cheeks when they reunite after years of separation. Tears may flow from us when we are witness to a commitment being made at a wedding or even while we are watching a love story. Tears of relief may spring forth from our eyes when we hear that a loved one has survived an ordeal, and tears may fall when we bow our head in sorrow over a loss or death. Tears born from heartache can flow like they’ll never cease, whether our tears are for a love that is over, a friendship lost, or an opportunity missed. We shed tears because of disappointment in ourselves, tragedy in the world, pain, and illness. Tears of anger can burn with emotion as they fall down our faces. Tears offer us a physical release of our feelings.

Shedding tears can sometimes make us feel better, although it can feel like the tears will never end once the floodgates are open. There is no shame in letting tears flow freely and frequently. Tears are as natural to us as is breathing. There is beauty in allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to shed tears. Open up, release your tears, and let your feelings flow.


When I read this it made me think of my journey over the past 10 yrs and how closed down I was to my own emotions. I remember I had just ended a long term relationship and I was sitting with my Mom, feeling sad, vulnerable and just wanting comfort. Bless her heart but I remember her saying “Men do not Cry, be strong”, I was kind of taken bk a bit and just swallowed the tears. I have learned since that I am a very strong and loving man that has the capability as all men do have our emotions.  I am at a point now that I love ALL of me the good the bad, the sweat and the Tears. I have also learned the more willing I am to be PRESENT and HONEST with myself and others the more open I am to giving and receiving pleasure.

When was the lat time you just let the tears flow? When was the last time you were so touch by kind words, a Movie, a Song?
