Opinion: Why does everyone say you are a man and can't cry?

Sachin

Everyone says that crying is a sign of weakness. They say we can't cry because they will never take us seriously if we do.

But the truth is, crying doesn't mean you are weak, and it doesn't mean you are not severe. Crying means you are human — someone who has feelings and cares deeply about the world around them.

They say that girls cry more than boys. But, who are they to judge? How could they know? Maybe it's just that we aren't as good at hiding our tears and emotions.

They say that crying shows a lack of self-control. But, really, why should we have to control ourselves and keep all of our feelings inside us? We shouldn't have to be the ones who put up a mask and cover everything up so people won't see us as weak.

They say they can't trust people who cry. But crying doesn't mean we don't trust them. It means that we can let our emotions out and show them how we feel.

They say that crying makes us look weak. But crying takes a lot of courage and strength. We should be happy about being able to let our emotions out, not sad that we're letting people know how we feel.

I guess you could say I'm a little bit of a crybaby. I never cry in front of other people because it's not considered manly — but the truth is, everyone sometimes cries — even the most challenging and most muscular men in the world. I'm not too fond of it when people call me that.

I've been told that I'm a coward. I've been called many names, but somehow, all of those things have never changed my strong beliefs about crying. Crying doesn't mean you can't be brave. It just means that sometimes, it's okay to let your emotions out and be like everyone else.

It's not something we should be ashamed about or embarrassed about — it's something that should be celebrated, not looked down upon.

I don't think that crying means that we are weak. You could look at it as a sign of strength. I cry because it lets all my feelings out, and I now know how to control them and use them.

I think the real reason why everyone is so mad at us for crying is that they are afraid of the truth that we show — that men care more about our feelings than they want to let on.

It's okay to cry. It's okay, to be honest. It's okay to care about other people and share your emotions.

Until someone else does it, though, I'll still say that if you're not crying, then you aren't human. Because, even if you're a robot, that would be one sad robot.

Crying doesn't make you weaker — crying makes you human.
