Biochemist William Frey, who has been researching tears for as long as I’ve been searching for sanity, found in one study that emotional tears–those formed in distress or grief–contained more toxic byproducts than tears of irritation (think onion peeling). Are tears toxic then? No! They actually remove toxins from our body that build up courtesy of stress. They are like a natural therapy or massage session, but they cost a lot less! “Suppressing tears increases stress levels, and contributes to diseases aggravated by stress, such as high blood pressure, heart problems, and peptic ulcers."

never waste your suffering...

let it be the light that guides you in the darkness.

the fuel that catapults you into your next stratosphere.

let it make you better not bitter.

wiser and stronger.

more able to navigate the natural twists and turns of life.

look for the lesson, immediately! there are always aspects that are peeking their little heads out as clues and larger ones that become apparent as time passes.

never waste an ounce of this precious commodity for it can mold you into the (she)HERO of your own story.
