Tears? No fears

Filed under: Celebrities,News,Psychology,TV — posted by Rose @ 9:35 am

Reasons why it’s not that surprising that I teared up at Cody Linley‘s Dancing with the Stars departure Tuesday night:

1. It felt like a breakup. Or rather, two breakups in one: No more Cody and Julianne cutting it up while cutting a rug like the king and queen of the prom; no more, in my wildly dancing imagination, of our weekly threesomes.

2. Hey, I cried when Boner Stabone bid adieu to bestie Mike Seaver on Growing Pains. (I distinctly remember dashing to my bedroom to hide my tears from my family.) I also cried when Garfield said goodbye to his mother in “Garfield on the Town.” Yes, I have a problem.

3. Or do I? According to this recent study (sponsored by me, you’d think) about the health benefits of crying, it’s not a problem at all, which is great news for me.

Almost nine out of ten participants in the study reported improved moods post-weeping, and researchers found that emotional tears (as opposed to emotion-neutral, chopping-onions tears) contain stress-related hormones. So when we cry over stressful situations, such as a breakup, we really are “crying it out.”

Unfortunately, by “we,” I mean mostly women. The report states that men cry an average of seven times per year. For women, it’s a whopping 47 times per year. Also: men who cry out of sadness were “more positively rated” by women, while women’s sad tears made them less attractive to men.

For the record, Cody cried in a previous episode of DWTS while declaring his (platonic?) love for Julianne, so I know he’s the right man-boy for me.

  15. First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.

    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

  20. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of
    Wordpress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking
    at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
