– from my well loved and famous author, Paulo Coelho
When words fail is, tears jump to the rescue. These are expressions of what our hearts can no longer keep in, of thoughts that would hurt too much if ever verbalized. It releases bottled up joy, sorrow, anguish and pain.
Emotional tears have hormones, leucine enkephalin, a natural painkiller. That’s why when we cry our hearts out, we actually do feel a lot better.
