The world has a way of teaching people that crying means they are weak. It is deemed the inability to master one's emotions and withstand pressures. There lies the making of empty shells.
Why should you smile when you're heart is breaking because you want to go with the flow and conform to expectations on the definitions of strength? It takes great courage to be yourself and not hide.
Cry if your heart is heavy, provided, you do not cry yourself a river and drown in it.
