    When you cry, it signals that you’ve reached a level of stress that could be detrimental to your health and that it's time to let it out. Tears help wash away emotional stress brought on by intense feelings of joy, grief or panic. One major hormone that increases with stress is also associated with crying: prolactin. The higher the levels of prolactin in your body, the more often you're bound to experience emotional crying
