As we already know, crying is healthy and it’s part of being human. There are studies suggesting that crying causes our body to release “feel-good” chemicals that are beneficial to our health. We cry out of happiness, sadness, grief, and sometimes for reasons we cannot explain.
In the words of Robert De Niro’s character in the movie The Intern, “The best reason to carry a handkerchief is to lend it!” But more often than not, our moments happen in solitary, so there goes the chance of someone lending their handkerchief to us.
