Tears cleanse the soul, my grandma used to tell me. I used to be the biggest crier. Still is a bit. Sometimes you need a good cry to purge out all the sadness and negative feelings. What you mustn't do is allow your crying to take over your life. If you are unable to function at all and all you're able to do is cry, it's time to seek help. But if you're going through a rough time, don't hold those emotions in, cry it out. Let it out. Scream your feelings. Get all those emotions out. Allow yourself a moment to do this, but tell yourself that afterwards, you're going to get up, dust off your shoulders and continue on living.

Crying is a very normal thing, yes. However, crying nonstop is probably not a great thing. Who am I to say whats normal and whats not? But I would try to find out WHY you're crying, come talk to one of us listeners and maybe we can get to the bottom of it

It's okay to let your feelings out, and it's perfectly okay to cry. It's as normal as feeling happy, as normal as feeling sad. There's nothing wrong with crying, or the amount you're crying, if it tires you out though as it does me, make sure to get plenty of rest!

ohh dear, what a fantastic moment!! crying nonstop, letting the tears going out, releasing all the old painful sad, glum, melancholy moment that are stored in my eyes, my chin, my chest... feeling the tears soaking my cheeks... feeling released from all that stucked emotions, what a wonderful moment

No, it isn't. Emotional dysregulation is a sign that something may be seriously wrong. Please consult with a doctor or a therapist to see why you may be crying so much, so you can begin to get your life back on track.

depends the situation, crying can help relieve a lot of emotions that are bottled up and sometimes you don't even know you feel

I don't think it is. You need to find the trigger for your tears and try to heal as soon as you can.

Anxiety is an emotional disturbance that can have an incredible effect on your ability to control your emotions. Those that often feel like they need to cry may be suffering from the significant emotional changes that anxiety creates but I can tell you this, it's totally ok to cry and let your feelings out, many encourage it..holding back your emotions can take a lot of energy and if you focus all your energy on trying not to cry you will feel the need to dwell on the way you are feeling for longer, which will just end up increasing your stress and anxiety. So next time you feel the need to cry, let it out - it helps. Sometimes it just means we've been strong for too long and we just need that time to ease off a little bit..we're all humans right? So get back up and keep staying strong and amazing the way you are! :)

No, it's not normal...but it's okay. Crying is a natural human reaction to release emotion. While yes, crying isn't a fun experience...it can help you in the long run.

The normal for you is to be happy and to find the reasons that always cheer you up and make you feel better :)

Everyone is different. But if you are finding that you are crying non-stop, it may be time to seek help from someone you trust or a trained professional.

I'd say it's completely normal. Although it's frustrating but you need to cry for a reason, so let it all out! You'll often feel better once you've calmed down.

Ofcourse not. Crying when a person is sad makes him feel better. But non-stoo crying for long periods certainly indicates u need real help.

Crying is a way of getting better. If you continuously cry, you might be going through too much stress and sadness. So take a good moment and let it all out. Then try to work on how to cope with/fix/avoid what's making you so upset.

You know yourself that if you're suddenly prone to constant tears, something isn't right. Something has to be bothering you very badly. If you cannot decipher what that is, you may be suffering from depression without realising. Has something bad affected you lately? Have you undergone one or more stressful events recently? Have you spoken to anyone about it? Seeing a doctor or opening up to a friend or counsellorwould be the first step in discovering what is wrong and how you can develop coping strategies.

That's not an easy question to answer. It highly depends on the circumstances. For example, if you are grieving for losing a loved one recently, then crying is a normal emotional response. But if you are crying for non-severe reasons, or for no reason at all, then I'd recommend talking to someone about it and/or seeking professional help

Crying is not a bad thing, it is a natural way for you to let feelings out through crying. Generally with depression, that will be the case is that you will cry quite a bit because of the depression.

We are all humans and wee feel different emotions at different times. Crying is a an absolutely normal way to express extreme emotions like pain, sadness and hopelessness and may even help you relieve your stress. However, if you cry continuously for a long period of time, it may best to get professional help as you might be suffering from depression.

That is a most normal thing. Emotions do not require anyone's certification - but you should make an effort to improve your situation.

Sometimes, it's your body's way of getting all the negative things out. Crying is not all a bad thing, instead, it's a way to get all those negative thoughts out. You will always find that you feel a small amount of relief after crying. Just always remember the amount you cry will always decrease, and the times you smile will always increase.

yes, there comes a time that only tears can heal a hurt soul, even words can't help in fixing a deep problem inside your heart.

Feeling emotional can be natural. From happiness to anger to sadness, emotions are your mind's way of responding to life's events, and on their own they're actually a healthy outlet. But when you start to feel like you need to cry for what feels like no reason, it may be a sign that you're suffering from anxiety or depression ect

No its not but it is normal for you to let out your emotions because if you didn't let out you emotions things could get worst or can get worst find out what's making u cry cause this is not who u are but I think u need to talk to someone because it seems like you let out your emotions to get rid of them
