The Daily Tea: Let it Flow

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.”
-Washington Irving

There is strength in vulnerability. Don't be afraid to let it all out sometimes. Cleanse yourself of everything that is weighing on you. Tears convey many things, not just sadness. Cry in joy. Cry out of love. Resist the urge to bottle things up.
Sometimes when we are hurt, we don't want to give people the satisfaction of seeing the resulting emotions. Crying for or in front of someone doesn't give them power. Letting emotions build inside and fester is what gives them the power. Let it go so that you can move on.
