Even though Sunday has come and gone, here's your weekly tidbit.
I'm a frequent shedder of tears so I'm always surprised when people apologize for crying. I've never felt especially apologetic about my tears nor have I ever thought that they make me weak. (I do sometimes wish I could put them on hold for a more convenient time but that's more about my vanity--I'm not a pretty crier.) I prefer to think that I just happen to leak when I feel deep emotion and for me, feeling deep emotion is a near-daily occurrence.
If you are in the habit of saying you're sorry when you well up, consider the words above. Life is rough at times and crying is a healthy way of expressing your emotions. Tears don't mean that you aren't strong and they definitely don't warrant an apology. I say: Let them flow.
