There will be times you are going to want to cry and it’s perfectly okay to let it out. And then there are going to be times when you’ll want to cry and it’s not okay. You’ll need to postpone it. That said, crying in front of people should not be something frowned upon. However, in a business situation your strategy should be this: give yourself permission to cry later. Crying is a natural, organic part of the grieving process. If you don’t allow yourself to cry, you’re suppressing the release of emotion and pain from your body. Whether happy or sad, crying is a healthy and beneficial part of the experience of life.
