An increasing number of schools and companies in Japan encourage their students and employees to cry as a way of relieving stress and improving mental health. There are also people who are called “namida sensei” meaning “tears teacher.”

We are the only animals on Earth proven to cry for any reason other than to protect our eyes (though elephants and primates show promise). We most likely developed the ability of emotional crying so we could communicate with other humans before language existed.

The average guy will cry 6 to 17 times a year while the average woman will empty her tear ducts between 30 to 64 times.
