Have always loved the ocean. I can’t and don’t talk to anyone. My husband is not good either. Talking to people ————just can’t. Please a prayer for us. 

 


 

            Oh, I am so very sorry, @Catiele.   Yes, I will pray for you and your family.❤️

I’m misty eyes and sentimental but weeping, maybe a few times a year.

Assuming that because I don't make a show of my feelings I don't have them would be wrong. I don't have tantrums or shout, throw things either but I get as angry as any other. I don't care for PDA and PDE.

In my younger days when I began working, I would cry when I was very frustrated or angry...I learned quickly that if a woman cries, they are stereotyped “a hysterical woman” and pretty much dismissed...not much has changed except I learned to have better control of my emotions. Now I cry when I see my grandbaby look up and smile at me....when I see DH do something sweet or dear....lso the tears are all tears of joy...the best kind!

Re: Are You A Cryer?

[ Edited ]

@Retired Legal SecretaryI came across this quote that I'd copied from a book I read a couple of years ago.  The book is News of the World by Paulette Jiles.  The words, spoken by the character Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd:  "Old people cry easily, my dear.  One of the afflictions of old age."

 

I agree with the quote.  

 

And I recommend the book.  Which, IIRC, doesn't really have a lot to do with either old people or crying.

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.

No, I don’t.

But,  I know someone who is lonely, depressed, and in dispair.  She crys all the time.  She lost her husband a few years back, and now lives alone.  I urged her to seek grief counseling and get into a grief support group to help her move on.

Not since I got Dry Eye, no more tears to cry.

****************  Oh, Catiele, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your son.  I just read this and I said a prayer for you.  May God keep you under the shadow of his wings.  I will continue to pray for you.
