Sorry I haven't uploaded any drawings or anything of that nature lately (I blame school), but I wanted to take a moment and address a certain question, and that is, why does society frown upon crying so much? Crying is simply a physical expression of sadness, just like smiling is a physical expression of happiness and gasping is a physical expression of being shocked or surprised, so why is it that people make such a big deal when other people cry? I especially hate it when people respond to someone crying by saying "crying won't solve the problem." Even if it doesn't solve the problem, isn't it better to let someone express and possible purge themselves of the emotion that's giving them so much stress? Or should we just bottle up all our feelings like a soulless society that just acts happy all the time? We're human beings; we experience a great range of emotions on a day to day basis, so isn't it better to express them so that we can be more open with each other as individuals? Or have we just separated so much from each other that we're just robots expected to keep happy facades all the time and never tell anyone else what's on our minds? But then at the same time, when my friends and I are watching a sad movie or a movie with a sad part and someone doesn't cry, someone else usually responds with "YOU HAVE NO SOUL!" or something along the lines of that; why is it that people are expected to cry in response to things that happen to FICTIONAL CHARACTERS and not events that happen in real life? Shouldn't it be the other way around?
