Usually, the opposit
is often a release of stress
, that stems from a meaningful loss (friend, spouse, loss of good health, etc), an experience that wells up emotion
(like a good movie): usually this is a kind of 'letting go' response, which is healthy.
Distinct from one that cries very frequently and is not an emotional release, or cries for secondary gain, with purpose of getting someone's sympathy. Check c gp.
