"People cry, not because they’re weak. It’s because they’ve been strong for too long." Don’t count tears of weakness as crying, it’s just the water leakage of the eyes...
But tears that come from someone finally being open after remaining strong for far longer than they were supposed to, those tears are truly TEARS. And those tears should be comforted for in them is not weakness, but unbelievable strength!
Apparently, many people have had this kind of feeling. People went through some difficult times and have tried their best to stay strong and not to surrender and give up hopes. However, at one particular moment, all of a sudden, they can't really control themselves anymore. All the stress, sadness, frustrations, worries etc that have been suppressed for months or years suddenly erupt to the surface in a split second. They can't hold their fort of emotions any longer and so tears burst from their eyes.
In our daily life, we will tend to hide our inner stress and unhappiness in our dealings with other people. So, when we look around, at most we will see many expressionless faces, but we rarely see many sorrowful eyes. Let us remember that some of the people around us may be going through a difficult time at home, or even struggling with enormous stress at work or in their studies. We may not be able to offer them any concrete help, but let us take every opportunity to show a little compassion towards others by throwing them some friendly smiles, saying kind words, or patiently listening to their unhappy stories. That's the least we can do to alleviate their sorrows and hopefully will also cheer up our hearts as well.
Even with very small gestures, we can all help to make the world a slightly warmer place to live for everybody. Love and peace for all! ^_^
