MORE IDEAS FROM The Case For Crying Your Feelings Out During A Movie

During a movie, crying is particularly helpful because you're connecting to some emotion on the screen without actually going through it in real life.

For example, if there is a death in a movie and it resonates with us, it may help us reconnect with our grief.

The benefits of crying

From a psychotherapy point of view, releasing of emotions is a very good thing, especially when we have allowed emotions to build up inside for too long.

Crying doesn't just feel like a release; it releases toxins (which decreases stress), endorphins (hormones that make us feel happier), and oxytocin (the hormone that connects us with others).

Flying Changes our Mind and Body

Taking a flight creates physical and emotional changes in us, something that is now being more extensively researched. Air travel can change our mood, make us emotionally weak (more crying) or sad, and even change how our senses work.

The factors responsible for this phenomenon are the high altitude, the reduced air pressure, inadequate oxygen going in the brain and overall anxiety associated with flying.

Charles Darwin once declared emotional tears "purposeless."

Humans are the only creatures whose tears are not only a result of pain or irritation but can be triggered by their feelings. Emotional crying remains one of the human body's mysteries.

Understanding

The first step in forgiveness is to understand "why" someone acts the way they do. What are they trying to protect? What are they afraid of? What basic skills did they learn (or not learn) from their family of origin?

Understanding "why" breeds compassion and helps loosen the ties that bind us to blame.
