Why do we cry?
Before they learn to speak, babies cry to get attention. By contrast, people who tried to hold back their tears, or said they were ashamed to cry, were less likely to experience catharsis. Adults were more likely to cry in the privacy of their homes, when they were alone or with just one other adult. They were more likely to cry for reasons related to rejection or separation than pain or injury. Instead, they cry after the tension has lifted.
