Are women really wired to cry more often than anyone?

Posted in Uncategorized by dearestfriend on July 28, 2010

Alright!! I must confess I am writing this post because I want to be regular to my blog. I really love reading blogs, And eventually want my blog to be popular too..

With that said, the reason of writing the post is stated. However choice of topic is not in my hand. I seem to be having “Crying Day” Term I picked from one of the post I read about crying.. Suddenly since yesterday I am so overwhelmed taking care of whining and somewhat sick toddler, that I am crying for almost no reason. I always thought post partum blues were crazy description. I never felt something when I had my child for few months.. Then it started kicking in once in awhile. So eventually I surrendered and realized , it indeed is for real.

I was so in much into crying that I was crying all the way through my drive to office for no apparent reason. Cant even blame it to spouse ;-). He hasn’t done anything crazy to add to this.. Then when I came in office , I thought of googling the topic, why women cry. I got several interesting posts. I will post of all the links just to let everyone go through detailed and honest posts.

Here is my take after reading all the below posts.. Women may be more wired to cry than man, But that doesnt make them any less strong. How you express certain emotion doesnt decide how far will you go in your quest for something. I feel Men and women are equally wired to aspire ambitions, happiness and other facets of human life. You may decide to go from place A to Place B in cab and other one in a train, does that make detination any less important for either one? No I guess. With that I will leave you with abstract below. I feel it explains the propensity to cry in women somewhat.


(Copied the following abstract from Positivethoughts.com site as above link)

Why do Women Cry?
A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” “Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”
Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”
“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally he asked God. He said, “God, why do women cry so easily?”
God said:
” When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort.
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.”
“You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart – the place where love resides.”
