Crying in a dream can be very disturbing to the dreamer because crying is often associated with negative events and feelings. Crying however or any form of tears is an outlet that humans use to express their emotions. If you see tears or crying in your dream you are simply expressing a certain emotion over the dream content. This could highlight feelings to you that you have that you were not aware of in your waking life. This is often important for us when it comes to relating to others. If a specific reason in your dream was making you cry, it may be important to consider how that situation relates to your current waking life. In most cases however tears are simply an outlet in your dreams as much as they are in our waking lives, and their meaning is much less disturbing in reality than it feels when we are experiencing them in the moment.
