Crying can be seen as a negative thing, but it’s actually a positive. It’s part of the human reaction to bad situations, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s healthy to cry, and it often actually leaves you feeling a sense of relief once you’ve got it out of your system. Let yourself cry over situations – it’s part of dealing with negative things that happen. If self-harm is giving you a release, then you might be able to get the same sort of feeling by just having a good cry.

And fellas – it’s ok for men to cry too. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it – it’s not a sign of weakness, it’s you being human.
