Tears, you may not realize, are a surprising tool for positivity.

Whether tears are being shed in happiness or in joy, or in sorrow and sadness, they are still a tool for Positivity.  Because tears cleanse.

When you are so filled with joy that you could burst and you begin to cry, it is an experience of ultimate release.  So powerful that you are overwhelmed, and so moved.


When you are sorrowful or sad and you begin to cry, it is an experience of ultimate release.  So powerful that you are overwhelmed, and so moved.

Release, relief, whether from sadness or happiness, is still positive.  Why?  Because once you have had that release, you are now free and open to tremendous amounts of positivity.

There is nothing like the release that tears can bring.  So much pent up energy that your system has to give.  While there are many vents we have to release that pent-up emotion, tears are particularly powerful.

Yes, you can shout, scream, throw punches, break stuff to release that energy.  But tears cleanse like nothing else can.  Tears open you up in a way that no other physical act can.  They are an ultimate creator of freedom.

Why is positivity important?  Because we all want to feel good.  We all want to be hopeful.  We all want to experience exceptional things in life.  But there are going to be instances that create emotions in us so strong that we can’t just hold onto them.

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it just changes form.  Emotions are a part of that energy, but they can create a build-up that needs to be released.  That’s tension.  Sometimes the release is obvious, like a laugh, or a sneeze, or that moment when you are with a partner and realize they want to be kissed as much as you want to kiss them.  These are releases of energy.

Tears are an energy release.  The body becomes so full of either positive or negative energy that it must be released.  Like any overpowered engine, something has to give so that the system does not break down.  That is what tears are.


Once tears flow, the energy is released.  It does not matter whether that was positive or negative energy that caused the tears, now that they are released you can start anew.  Positivity can be created, and you can renew your efforts and change your direction.

There are going to be times when we all need release.  Letting go of any overage of energy opens us to more possibilities for positivity.

Finding positivity is not hard, it just requires action.  Knowing that we all need to liberate excess energy, whether from joy or sorrow, we can be freer in doing so.  When we accept the need for that release, and we allow the tears to flow, once the energy excess has been released we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
