Sometimes, you just need a good cry. Maybe you’re dealing with a ton of stress, maybe you are struggling with something in your life, or maybe you don’t even have an exact answer and all you know is that you have a bunch of pent up emotion that needs to be let out. Your reasons, whatever they may be, are valid.
When I feel like this, I turn to some of my favorite movies — specifically romantic dramas that will inevitably have me reaching for a box of Kleenex no matter how many times I’ve watched them. Whereas rom-coms are designed to make you feel light and fluttery, these films are designed to hit you where it hurts. You’re swept up in some of the most raw and powerful emotions a human could feel, all because they have formed some kind of enigmatic connection with another person. In between heaving sobs, there’s a moment of grounding, even beyond the most dramatic of scenarios: This feeling is what being a person is all about. 
So next time you’re in the mood for some cathartic tears, cue up one of these tried-and-true films.
