Every Tear Matters!!!



I am a girl who has so many moments of moist eyes. At times just as full as it may pour any moment and sometimes it will just readily flow.

There are moments when I don’t know why I have tears. Sometimes I will know why but won’t understand how I should respond. While some other times I may have tears but I wouldn’t want them to flow at that moment.

Dropping tears may seem like:
You are crying…
You are sad…
You are not happy…
you are emotionally disturbed…
you are a failure…

But is it always true?

I don’t know, but what I do know is that every tear matters.

If I have expectations then they must matter to my loved ones. They may hurt another person. People around me must pamper me. these are a few basic expectations that every heart has. Even I am not an exception.

At the very least somebody should understand why I am crying..?

It’s very normal to feel this way, even I feel like that. However, a moment comes when I gather my strength, wipe my tears, and stand strong and I tell myself that it’s time to walk again.

Ultimately it’s me who should stand for my own self.

So every tear must matter to me. It’s an opportunity to introspect. As my teacher would pit it – when you have tears with different emotions it surely is a confirmation that you are human and are still alive.

I am proud to say that I have tears when I am very happy, when I see the beauty in nature, or even when I am hurt, feeling sad or when one of my students delivered a baby.

No more fight with myself that it’s a sign of weakness. My tears are my strength as they tell me- I am alive and I have a long way to go.

As Robert Frost has put it:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep

Have you ever felt like this?

Thank you so much,
