We stop other people from crying because we cannot stand the sounds and movements of their bodies. It threatens our own rigidity. It induces similar feelings in ourselves which we dare not express and it evokes a resonance in our own bodies which we resist.

After crying, I feel less rigid, more responsive, more alive.
It’s part of what makes us human. Thank you for responding. 😉
