Why did Jesus tell the women to weep for themselves and their children?

Luke 23:28
"But turning to them Jesus said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children".

Luke 23:26 - 30

ESV - 26 And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus. 27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for him.
