8 Health Benefits of Crying

A bunch of wise guys out there claim that crying is a sign of weakness. But you know what? They don’t know jack!

According to the real experts that are highlighted in this article, crying is necessary and extremely therapeutic. Check out these 8 benefits.

1.It helps you deal with physical pain

Imagine breaking your leg during a botched backyard wrestling stunt. Or burning your hand by accident (or on purpose?). The pain is intense. You should just suck it up, right? Hell no!
