It takes a unique kind of individual to have compassion. Many individuals out there — narcissists and sociopaths, for instance — are conceived without it and experience their whole lives without ever truly placing themselves in other peoples’ shoes. This implies they can’t generally feel for other individuals. In spite of the fact that an absence of sympathy could come in exceptionally convenient for an utilized auto salesperson, it’s not generally something to be thankful for.
Really thinking about others’ states takes strength — a considerable measure of it. Life is merciless to a few people and in case you’re ready to really place yourself in another person’s shoes and feel that torment, it says something in regards to you.
You’re sufficiently solid to really withstand that torment, yet to feel it nonetheless. You’re sufficiently strong to be solid for others. You’re solid to the point that you comprehend what position they’re maintaining and can really feel what they’re feeling.
It’s never a weak thing to really tend to someone else, regardless of the possibility that that individual is a character in a film. It demonstrates that you really show some kindness, and that it’s a heart that can break itself for others. In spite of the fact that it can be broken, before the finish of the film, you know it’s been fixed back together.
Having the capacity to recuperate that rapidly says something else in regards to individuals who cry amid movies: they can skip back like nobody else’s business, and are sufficiently solid and sufficiently brilliant to really isolate reality from fiction.
Obviously, that is by all account not the only reason individuals cry at films. There are tears that stream since you’ve been the same place a character has been — tears of recollections that are agonizing. I have frequently thought that it was cathartic to see films that have individuals experiencing things I have, just in light of the fact that it permits me to let some of my restrained sentiments free healthierly. I’d get a kick out of the chance to perceive how anybody could question somebody’s quality when they really stand up to things that have harmed them before.
At that point, there’s the sort of tears that stream when you’re truly quite recently overpowered with the masterful virtuoso of a film. It’s not simply something fastidious individuals do, either. It’s called Stendhal Syndrome in its more propelled structures and it implies that a masterpiece moved you to the point that you’re having both physical and passionate manifestations.
For individuals who are truly defenseless to the way that workmanship moves them, really seeing a genuinely decent movie, listening a cool radio show, or reading the correct comic can be a trial of your capacity to keep a straight face. It can likewise be a noteworthy exciting ride — one which drives you to face and grasp feelings most others pick not to take a gander at.
Perhaps it’s not the sort of quality that the vast majority consider when they think about a strong individual, yet it’s the most vital sort of enthusiastic quality: sympathy. What’s more, to a point, bright acuity it takes to cry at a film is something you truly can’t deny.
Regardless of the possibility that we aren’t lifting 100 pounds, we are investigating our feelings, and that can lift our spirits higher than whatever else out there.
