Do You Think Crying Is a Sign of Weakness or Strength?

This is always a question that has generated various responses. Over the last few decades crying especially for a man was deemed as a sign of weakness but as society has changed it has now become more acceptable. Should we scrutinize people crying or is it simply an emotion that is felt when people feel sad, happy or scared.

I think crying is an emotion and it is a release and I personally cannot see a problem with it. Here in Australia we have had Prime Ministers cry over various events so it cannot be all that bad.

Yes, I think it is. I personally think that too much crying in front of people demonstrates weakness than gentleness. In a very limited occasion, crying shows that we care and have a deep sympathy to others. But, it shows nothing but weakness when we we do it too much. We can be strong and firm and at the same time be passionate and caring. For those who suffered a bad situations, having other who tough and caring to their situation is more important than having other who cry for them.

From my perspective crying is ok because it releases emotional stress. But as a man there should be a limit. For instance as a father, I think my children should not hear or see me wailing and crying! A man can just release a few years in silence and that’s enough to release that emotional stress.

Crying is not sign of weakness, rather it is a way of reducing emotional stress.

Crying is a normal human experience and a way a persons emotions affect them therefor I do not believe that crying is a sign of weakness at all. It is completely normal to express human emotion whether it’s joy or crying our emotions are what makes us human. Crying is also still a sign that you as a human being experience different feelings therefor not making it a sign of weakness in any form but in my opinion purely a way for humans to express emotion and should not be anything to be ashamed of.

Crying once in a while can release ourselves from the tension we are going through. But we cannot cry always , this is a sign of weakness and people might think we not capable of anything.

In my opinion, crying is a sign of braveness. We can release our pressure, stress, undissolved problems and more through our tears. This method is same as shouting at your pillow. However, crying always also not good for our mental health and people may think that we are mentally weak.

Normally crying is not a sign of weakness or strength, it let people shows out their feelings and emotions when facing some situations or troubles. But sometimes people use to express their weaknesses but crying telling people that they lack something as money or help they need.

To shed a tear helps to sooth a person in difficult times or show great joy in good times. But it’s unacceptable to cry like a baby when other people are looking up to you for guidance in a difficult situation. Crying in such times does not help the situation but make things worse.
I just can’t imagine myself crying in front of my children! It shows weakness and no faith in yourself and the universe.

It depends on the reason the person is crying. When you cry to express your feelings or emotions, most of the time it is a sign of compassion and sympathy .

A man should not cry in front of his children and wife . This is partly because a man is supposed to be strong whatever circumstances he faces. A man is supposed to comfort his wife and children and only cry when he is very sick and when he cannot control emotions.

Crying is not someone’s weakness for me. Crying can make me calmer and wake up from sadness. There are times when I cry when I feel a heavy burden. Crying can also take out emotions we can’t get out of on other people.

Hi, Kenneth.
 
In your previous comment, you said that crying is not a sign of weakness, rather it is only a way to reduce the emotional pain. But, recently, you said that crying is a sign of weakness. What is the point you intend to say?

Hi Kenneth, I don’t think crying is a sign of weakness but a sense of him expressing emotions when he can’t stand it when bad or good happens to him.

No, crying is not the sign of weakness, but i sign of emotional state to communicate our feelings to people. It can be bad or good feeling about something that is happening or has happened.
