Are You A Cryer?

Other than a death do you cry often?  No., I don't. Movies,songs, commercials don't do it. I might think something is sad or terrible but I don't cry. It's never made me feel better.

Constantly!!! Seriously I cry over a commercial, over a news story, when my grandkids say something super cute,etc......The older I get, the more sensitive I am......I am a lot like my dad, he cried easily too, and was very sensitive........   I will also cry in church if I am moved by a song, or the sermon. When I say cry, I don't necessarily mean sobbing, but will get teary eyed.

Re: Are You A Cryer?

A good cry always makes me feel better , it’s cathartic. I also have a problem expressing anger, so it often comes out in tears, I just can’t help it. Music is another trigger. I will say as I’ve gotten older, I don’t cry as much. Who knows why 🤷‍♀️

No.  Maybe once or twice a year.  But, there's a commercial for Covenant House that always moves me to tears.

Someone is always saying “Oh you know how she is.”.

No and I see those who are as weak and unstable. Some are just attention seeking manipulators. They probably used crying to get what they wanted as children and it was a success then so why not now.

Re: Are You A Cryer?

I don't cry over songs, I don't cry if I lose an earring or if I hear a sad story.  I don't cry at weddings.   A movie or book or poem that deeply resonates with me will make me a little weepy.  It can't  just be something sad, it has to be something that touches something deep in me.  Something personal.  I don't cry at funerals or wakes; I didn't at my parents' funerals.  The tears came much later and  in private.
