CRY ME A RIVER

I believe we don’t cry enough as a society. It is so sad that our culture shames this pure and beautiful expression of true emotions. There is nothing wrong, shameful or weak about crying. It is one of the most powerful forces. There is immense healing in crying. Your tears are one of your most…
