In fact, to suppress one's strong emotions can cause all kinds of problems.
Additionally, because of outdated viewpoints about the healthy release of emotions, it takes more 'guts' to cry then not to cry.
So, as long as they are not crocodile tears, I say as long as people cry whenever they feel the need, then they are crying exactly the right amount.
I'm thinking more of the reality tv[not all are scripted] type shows or when some women are caught on camera crying hysterically right before getting arrested. Legit tears I can see, but still it makes me uncomfortable but that's more a me thing. I usually cry behind closed doors. None of my kids have seen me cry either. I guess I get it from my Grandmother,who was a strong woman.
