We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?
I’ve cried mostly for sadness in my life. Deep, emotional, toll taking, gut wrenching sobbing and wracks of pain. That’s been the most. I don’t think I have cried out of pain or fear since I was like 10 years old or so. A little too macho for that. Ok not really but pain hasn’t made me cry. Neither has fear.
Happiness, I have cried a bit at a few times. I know that I am an emotional man and that I don’t really hide my emotions too well. You can often see it written on my face or in my voice or in my expressions. Sometimes in the finger I hold up! Or in my actions. But crying out of happiness is a good thing though rare. I honestly can only recall a handful of times that I have cried due to happiness and love and it’s deeply treasured by me. But it’s been a while.
I hope I get to cry out of happiness and joy and love sometime soon. I am due one big Hallmark moment. We gotta have a few of them in our lives.
