tears

This may sound strange, but I think it’s good to see other people cry. I’m not happy that their emotions are bringing them to tears, but there’s just something so moving and humanizing about watching someone cry. You are catching a glimpse of their vulnerability, and the tears soften them somehow. Tears of pain can be so beautiful because they are a physical representation of someone’s being, their real self open and exposed to you. I think I might sound off-kilter in a creepy, voyeuristic way, and hey–maybe I do. I just think it’s a good thing to see others let their guard down (and of course it’s good for me to do the same).
