If crying is often synonymous with pain and sadness, we sometimes cry for joy, happiness, even laughter. There are many emojis that exist to describe this beautiful emotion. How can the same natural and human phenomenon come from two very contradictory feelings? A question of emotions and each person, man and woman, has their own way of managing them!

When the eyes become wet, we sometimes abuse it when we are children, but becoming an adult does not make us impervious to tears, quite the contrary, even if crying becomes rarer. However, the older we grow, the more we are subject to rupture, whether it comes from the circle of family, friendship or love . The source of pain or depression is all the more multiple.

When we see someone crying, male or female, we have this natural thought that this person is sad when they may have received some wonderful news that broke them emotionally, such as a marriage proposal by example, or the announcement of a new pregnancy.

Alas, even if we hide this feeling most of the time, even from our closest family and friends, sadness is part of everyday life even if we don't wish it on you. It can also happen that an illustrious stranger comes to get us out of a lonely grief. Moments of spleen, when melancholy takes hold of your mind and a dust in the eye comes to redden the eyelid. Besides, can we think that it is loneliness that makes us sad or is it sadness that makes us lonely? This is not a quotation but gives to meditate with love.

This sadness can have several causes and is often linked to grief, unhappiness, pain, loneliness, abandonment, despondency, mourning, bitterness, nostalgia, disappointment , to worry, to grief, to suffering, to disenchantment, to disillusion, to melancholy, to depression, to nostalgia, to spleen, even to boredom. A host of feelings that no man or woman likes to have.

If there are so many words to describe what can make us cry, we often have trouble finding them to explain why. There is no way or magic bullet to escape it. Whether it's a breakup, a death, a disappointing friendship or an absent parent. However, the most common origin of sadness lies in love. Love makes you sad and makes you cry. Indeed, love is a feeling that will bring us the most joy and happiness but which has this unfortunate gift of quickly bringing us down emotionally.

Love, that beautiful feeling, is just as vulnerable, and that's what makes it easy to break. When a love disappoints us, hurts us, leaves us, through gestures or phrases that we did not want to hear, the heart breaks and we cry because there is nothing more human.

Beyond the vagaries of life, if there is one thing that arouses emotions in us, it is art. In all its forms, art can be a refuge and also convey the answers we seek to ward off our sadness. It is not rare that an author, through a text, carries a message of hope despite the sadness and makes us learn so much about life and its pain.

The art of sadness, a love quote for crying

Indeed, who hasn't already shed a little tear in front of a film, vibrate with emotions while listening to music or let yourself be pierced by the power of a painter's painting? And obviously, who has never let himself be transported through many feelings, whether happy or sad, through a book, whether it is poetry or a novel?

Fiction has this gift of being able to identify with it, of bringing us closer to a certain reality that touches us in the depths of our heart, of our soul. It can arise from the mind of a recognized writer like Victor Hugo or from an unknown author whose genius has nothing to envy to more illustrious authors.
