Crying is one of the most relifing ways to epress our inner feelings, it is as significant as smiling and laughing, it is one of communication means for our human kind .. I don't think that animals do it!! Any ways .. some people think that those who cry are too sensitive or too emotional persons, while others feel that crying is necessary for expressing what ever inside you ... I'm one of the persons who agree that crying is necessary in a lot of times even when we are happy we should cry, but i usually don't allow my tears to show infront of people so ilike to cry alone on my own pillow .. I have the feeling of this when I watch a very sad movie, or after reading a touching story, sometimes I do it when I hear about a great unexpected success from someone who doesn't seem to be able to do it .. and mostly i cry when I'm sad, betrayed, feeling down .. somepeople say that am too sensitive but I feel that I shouldn't keep these feelings inside me as it might be so stressful . what about you .. do u usually cry?! when? do u cry infront of others or while u r complaining about sth happened to ur dear friends or to your pillow as i do?!?! if you dont cry usually .. do u think that crying is a weakness in our personality and we should ignore it and not to do it?!

I dont cry often...maybe its because i am a man, and it isnt easy for me to do so.Last time i cried was when i heard some bad news about my health (luckily it was treated successfully) and i was o worried about the future. Earlier than that,a couple of years ago, i had cried to kinda relieve myself from the most terrible headache i had ever had, and it helped.I dont mind if im seen, especially if people who care about me are next to me.

Shouldn't the man cry ?! sometimes our tears run without our control , in the most sorrowful events we cant hold our tears .. holding them will kill us , it will break our hearts and our souls

I totally believe crying is essential! How else do you relieve pent up hurt and anger? Maybe it's more of a mental thing, but my tears feel like the hurt leaking out of me, but otherwise, how do I get rid of it?! My mom always got angry at me when I cried because she thought it was useless, but it really does make me feel better! I don't like crying in front of people, but I don't have much self control and sometimes, I end up losing it. Not like all out sobbing, but I can't stop the tears from coming down or my breathing to stop shaking!

See, I just don't know how to stop. Like if I start feeling extremely stressed and people start talking to me when I'm on the verge of tears trying to comfort me, I just end up actually crying!! -__-

I am not the one who would cry on any issue. I have learned to live life as it comes and dont cry. Hardly have i cried over years and when ever there is something to be happy about i am there which smiles and excitement and enjoy those moments with my fellows and in case of some odd events i am always there to fight it out to the last as i know that crying is not going to solve the problem. I need to get up and make a sratergy to fight out and thats what i do.

Crying wont solve our problems but at least it will remove some of the heavy stress on our minds , it's true that we should have a strategy to solve our problems instead of setting in a corner and crying till it's solved

I am a closet crier. I don't like people to see me when I am at my weakest. I very rarely cry in front of anyone. When hubby sees me cry he knows something is really wrong. I know it isn't a sign of weakness and everyone should cry but I just can't do it in front of others. It also bugs me when women use tears to manipulate men, if you turn them on and off like a faucet how will people know when it is something serious?

I also think that crying is really necessary for the mental balance. I usually cry to let my anger or hurt out. This way I can forget the bad things and can even forgive that person. But I don't like crying in public. I think crying is some kind of private thing and I don't want other to see me when I cry. Cause when I cry the reason would be either I'm angry or I'm hurt and I don't want people to see me in messed up condtion except for my boyfriend.

What is state here that crying is one of the most way to express how we feel. I used to cry when my mother had sick while I was a little girl and didn't know how to make my mother get better. I saw her very terrible. I just cried to see her like that and promised that when she had recoverd, i will do anythings that she asked me to do. I also cried when my relationship with someone that I love, was not as our hope. he left me and I just cried to my pillow and also cried to god. After crying, I felt better even still sad. But if I am not crying, I might be get stressed in handling my feeling.

My pillow is the only sole witness in my sadness and tears. I don't let anyone to see me cry. It's something I keep hidden nor can you see sadness in my face even if deep inside my world crumbling down. Smiling has always been easier than explaining why I'm sad.

I usually cry, It's a good way to give went to your feeling. When you are happy, you can cry, when you are sad, you can cry. Someone said that cry is good for your health. My family know that I like cry, they do not agree not to say either badly. LOL~ But my sister, she is a very tough girl, she never cry in anywhere or anytime. I admire her very much.

I agree.. Crying helps relieve stress and anxiety. However, I find it hard to let the tears drop even when I'm alone. It's also least likely to catch me crying over a movie or a show. I don't know why I can't seem to produce tears even when I really want to cry my emotions out. Sometimes, not being able to cry adds up to whatever is bothering me. I guess I only get to cry when I'm really, really stressed out or really drunk (lol) and when I do cry, I usually hide my tears from people. In fact, I can recall all the times my friends have seen me cry and believe me, it rarely happens.
