Most people don’t like to cry especially in front of others. People think that crying is a sign of weakness, but it’s not. We are all naturally born to cry. It is part of us, and no one can stop it. Crying is made to release the pain we feel because if we don’t let go of the pain, then it will always result in something disastrous.

“Cry” by Lynn Anderson

Lynn Anderson advises the same thing, that we should learn to cry to let go of the pain. “Cry” is the first track on her same-titled album released in 1972.
