“When a person cries and the first drops of tears comes from the RIGHT EYE, it’s HAPPINESS. But when the first roll is from the LEFT EYE, it’s PAIN.”~ Unknown

This caught my attention. Mainly because that everywhere I went to research on this, it kept saying that this was a psychological fact.

But there was nothing to base it on. NO documentation whatsoever.

It would however make for a great piece of trivia of the human emotion.

We all cry. Some in pain, some with joy. And sometimes for both. I just never had heard this before about whether or not the first drop of tears comes out of which eye that would express either joy or pain.

Here’s the biggest problem with that. When a person cries, they are not really all that concerned with where the tears are coming from. They don’t pay any attention to which eye the first tears have fallen. So the attempt to notice something like that is basically fruitless.

I think that the only way that could be observed is if someone ELSE was watching you cry. And let’s be honest: How many of us are quite willing to just cry in front of someone? I surely don’t know a lot of people.

It all falls back to the point that nobody can prove this to be true. And nobody can prove this to be false. There’s simply nothing out there that I have found to support or deny the claim of which eye the tear first falls from to express either happiness or pain.

Tears are tears. And a part of the human condition and emotion. images

Just like the old wives tale of an itchy palm. One palm means that money is coming to you and the other palm means that you will be having less money. But it gets lost in the fog as to which palm means what. Left or right???

My right palm was itching a week ago. A few days later, I received $200. It itched again on Thursday and today I received $20. But does the actually skin irritation to our hands actually have something meaningful to do with what befalls us? And as I am sure that Dr. Froth would inquire: What does it mean if your butt itches??

Is there a real connection to it? Is there a real link?  seriously doubt it.

So I welcome any and all medical or psychological documentation that would lead to facts that the first tears falling from either eye actually means something, whether happiness or joy.

    Coming from a medical background, I’ve never heard of this. Doesn’t make much physical sense to me, but it’s a cool sentiment. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my site. I appreciate it!
