I’ve been thinking about tears lately. Most of us cry from time to time. If we happen to cry in the presence of others, one of the first things that may be said is, “Don’t cry.”

People say this with kindness - after all, they don’t want you to be in pain. This may be why some of us cry privately. I had the privilege of seeing a healer who told me, “Tears are welcomed here.” Allowing another person to cry freely is a wonderful gift.
