Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in awhile, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again.Alex Tan
Yes, tears are a part of striving for happiness. When we feel sadness, tears are a real expression of our feelings. When we experience grief ourselves, or even the connected feeling of universal grief when others around the world are hurt, it's important to feel what we feel. Feelings are never wrong, and even the most uncomfortable or distressing feelings are a normal and healthy part of our psychology. Experiencing and expressing our pain also allows us to create more room for pleasure and the full experience of joy.
