What some people don’t understand about crying in depression is that sometimes, it’s nothing more than an outlet. The emotions still are too raw to handle directly, and the sufferer might not yet be trained to do so. And there’re usually two possible outlets.


And tears.

So if you know someone who’s always angry and goes into uncontrollable rages, and feels guilty after… He or she may need to be checked for depressive symptoms too. Anger management classes might not be sufficient.

Though crying is definitely less harmful to others. Though the tear ducts often feel overworked.
