Day 11

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?

Jostlyn: I think crying is weakness leaving the body. But the act of crying is weakness. Does that make sense? It takes a strong person to allow themselves to cry, because they are making themselves more vulnerable for those moments, but in the end, they feel better, stronger, and a new person afterwards. I always feel better after a good cry. So... both? 

Carson: The only strength crying portrays is spiritual strength. When you cry because someone yelled at you or because you got a paper cut does not mean you're strong. That is weakness. But when you cry because you are touched by a situation, story, or person. Then there is something special in that.

Wow, have I failed! I wanted to do weekly updates and that just didn't happen. I took on too much work and it really got the best of me....
