Bawl your eyes out - It's good for you

Sometimes women just need to have a good cry, and we might not even know the reason, let alone remember it a week later. So when one husband couldn't begin to keep up with the reasons for his wife's tears, he decided to write them down.

As he said in his Reddit post, "My wife cries at absolutely anything. I mean, ANYTHING. So I started writing the reasons down ." (Men always seem so baffled by a woman's emotions)
The resulting notebook is hilarious, with reasons from "she was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet" (aw) to "I waited until it was dark and pretended to be the Babadook" (duh).
One commenter wrote, "To be fair, I'm a grown ass man and that one might even make me cry."
This is a pretty ingenious idea, right? Keeping tabs and then looking back on all the reasons you cried throughout the year will make you laugh at yourself and make your dumbfounded husband's eyes roll back in his head. But a nice self pitying bawl can relieve a lot of stress and wash out bad emotional stuff you've been carrying around all week.
I think men are envious of us. They have to internalize emotions like anger, sadness and frustration and when the pressure builds they have to punch something or take it out in body contact sports like football or just have a male tantrum.
Just let it all out ladies. Crying is good for your eyes and your mental and emotional health. When you cry with a friend it's even better. Then you can share the ice-cream afterwards.
When you think about it, there are very few female serial killers. Hmmm.
