    I wanted to bring a different subject based on crying in general. I am sure you guys have had a moment where you have let it all out due to a stressful situation, an argument, dispute, or misunderstanding.

    Feel free to share your stories here

    Here is my story

    It was October 2008 and i was in the middle of my first semester in college. My brother was just finding out that i was bisexual and when i came home from college. He spazzed out on me and berated me for it i was left in tears and emotional shock and had a nervous breakdown. I still haven't forgiven him for that because it was hurtful and i still cry about it every now and then.


    How about you fellas feel free to let it all out icon_razz.gif

    Why didn't you yell back at him? You just ALLOW your brother to belittle you? Why do you do that to yourself? Remember this, people might not love you, but YOU always have to love yourself. Don't forget that.

    I used to have moods. Today I have feelings.

    I can identify the cause, describe the feeling, and have acceptance.

    I cried 3x this week; twice because I was obsessing and once because my life is beautiful.

    So crying is just another emotional outlet. Some would say it's like an orgasm.

    I sometimes worry because barely anything affects me enough to bring tears or relevant emotion...


    I have broken down a few times in my life, when I was younger. The only thing that brings that amount of distress is when I argue with illogical people who completely berate me and use circular logic. I will press and press to get my point across, using hundreds of examples, until I become so frustrated that I break.


    The only thing that has historically made me cry is being misunderstood by ignorant assholes. Rather, one ignorant asshole in particular.

    Every few weeks I will break down from mood swings for no reason I start out happy having a great day then all of a sudden the most insignifacint problem will make me cry like crazy I just chalk it up to hormones if that's still even valid at this point

    i was hurt emotionally by my mom when i was 10 and i never fully recovered. i cried a lot then, but nothing since then hurt quite as badly. i've probably cried like...three times since i was 10. the last time i cried was a year ago when my father told me he got another DUI (two in ten years = felony). that introduced a series of events that left him unemployed and penniless.

    but whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. or in my case...shut off. but yeah. i still have optimism.

    whew. that felt good. haha

    The one thing that makes me cry often is failure....I HATE failing in anything...it really eats at me and I get upset with myself. I cry hysterically BUT ever since I was a little kid, no one has ever seen and never will see me cry...I could be going through hell but you'd never be able to tell.

    the evanescence of a caress...
    the transience of a smile...
    the sunset that predicates the dawn...
    the moment that is eternity....

    Black Swan always makes me cry, and the weirdest part is where! When Nina comes back to the dressing room and realizes she stabbed herself, BAM I go into waterworks right through to the end of the film. Natalie Portman did such an amazing job at conveying the mental breakdown in that part.

    I'm not a crying type person at all--unless someone I care about is really hurting, serious illness or someone has died, BUT overall I am a warm loving/hugging type Italian American.icon_smile.gif

    A few years back my mother got very sick suddenly and died after six weeks in the hospital when it seemed over and over again that she was rallying and then she would relapse. I did a lot of crying then.

    Since that time I find that I am much more prone to crying, though not because of something that is happening to me. News stories, emotional moments in plays and movies, all kinds of stuff happening to other people. I even cry during the national anthem at Yankees games. icon_confused.gif

    I can't claim that I'm a better person for it, but I think my empathy and emotional sensors are a lot closer to the surface now.

    I'm not the emotional type because crying is a sign of weakness but My friend Lisa said a real man will not feel embarrassed for crying so yesterday I let the flood gates out with her because she was leaving and I'm not gonna see her again unless I travel there. We had our little moment here in the bathroom.

    I disagree that crying is a sign of weakness because I have literally cried from laughing so hard (tears of joy), from seeing someone else hurting or whatever have you. Therefore, crying is just a natural reaction to our emotions whether it's from happiness or sadness.

    Born under the sign of Cancer, my emotions are always very near the surface.
    I tend to cry out of sentimentality a lot more than out of sadness.
    --Soldiers coming home
    --Rescuing those Chilean miners
    --"Field of Dreams," when Kevin Costner has a game of catch with his dad.

    Don't be ashamed of crying.

    One day, I woke up, it was sunny outside, just made myself a bowl of cereals and was eating. Then I opened up my computer and TrevorMark had posted a youtube video, a short clip that was from a documentary about the Golden Gate suicides.

    I just started watching it, very innocently. It was a happy morning, you know, and I was just curious.

    Halfway in the video, I was crying my ass off, literally touching my screen to prevent these poor people to jump off. Hearing sad statistics about it never did anything to me; but coming face-to-face with the reality of suicide really made me go crazy...

    Here it is, for those who are interrested :

    I can get really emotional at a lot of things. I suppose I'm quite the empath.

    Cried over what? You talking shit without having any evidence to back up any of your claims? You ignoring anything that anybody says that proves that you're a douchebag? You overreacting with your accusation that I completely ignored your advice and using that as a reason to try and dismiss anything I say as if I'm a babbling idiot?
