Do you easily cry?

I always cry easily. When I watch heart touching stories, heavy drama movies, and even when I read touching stories I can't help but cry. This is understandable though. But just recently I noticed that even if I can't explain the reason why, I still cry. For instance, I was watching a little girl with unbelievable talent in singing over you tube, and as if I'm the mother, I cried. My friend shared a problem about her father and again I got affected and tears ran down my cheeks when even my friend didn't cry at all. And just this morning I was having an interview with my student as part of speaking test.He relate to me a history that had happen in our country maybe he can use the language so well that I was carried away and was really teary ... the ending? we were laughing at it. So weird!. Does anyone of you can relate to this?

Hello there! I am also very emotional by nature and i also do cry a lot easily. Maybe its because of my zodiac sign as well, im a Cancerian and I don't know if it only fit to the description of being born under this sign, that i am really emotional by nature. I cry when I watched sad movies, when I heard sad stories, watched drama movies and when I saw someone who is crying, then, ill be in tears for sure. Have a nice day ahead!

Maybe people like us are too emotional,sincere and sensitive. I think that made us unique.

Yes. I am also very easy to cry when sad. Especially when I'm alone. But, I also can hold my tears, if I do not want anyone else to know I'm crying.

I don't cry. I mean it's really hard for me to cry. Crying with joy is fine. But I still don't know if I am capable of that. But when it comes to sorrow or shock I find myself getting stiff and strong. With the increase in pressure my resistance to it increases too. Sometimes when I am in deep trouble, I may feel like crying. But even then I don't cry. I used to cry in my childhood. May be I just forgot to cry. I am not much sentimental and my friends often complain about that. I don't get excited in joy and I don't get depressed easily. But that doesn't mean I have no emotion. It's just that the emotion has little or no demonstration.

Maybe you are too strong to think about crying. I'm happy to know a person like you do.

hi.. yeah, I'm also very sensitive and I easily cry. When I'm watching movies with touching stories, my tears would just voluntarily run down my face and I can't help it. Sometimes, even when I'm watching comedy shows, I cry. maybe that's what they call "person with shallow tears". The embarrassing thing is, when I'm watching with my friends or family and suddenly my tears are falling, they would laugh at me and tease me. I don't know how I would control my tears from falling. Maybe that's me and that's who I am.

Yes, I do find myself crying very easy too. I look at it as a gift from God. He has made me a sensative person who can relate to other's feelings. I can embrace someone much easier when I feel their pain and suffering. I truly do believe that God give people this gift. I know with my experience people have come to me and feel comfortable when they are in pain because they know that they can share this pain they are going through with someone who feels for them.

I never really easy ti cry in public place. If its happen its only because its really hurt in mentally or physically. I remember the last time I cry in public place because one of my friend hurt my heart really bad. I never really asking any thing from him and I help her when I can but its really hard to satisfied selfish people and really glad she is out from my life now.

I used to cry easily when I was younger. Drama shows made me cry a lot. But as time passed by, my emotions changed a little. Now I don't easily cry anymore except for some reasons which are really heavy.

I would say that you are a sensitive person and that is a fortunate way to be. Many people block their emotions and that is not good from a health point of view. When we are able to cry, we are able to release energy that is building up inside us, that would otherwise put strain on a nervous system and be the potential for future illness later in life. Men in particular, are usually heavily blocked with their emotions and there is some evidence to suggest that this is why they tend to to live quite so long as women do. As a therapist, whenever I have had a client that has began to cry, I see this as a positive move forward in their therapy with me. _Derek

I am also a comparative crying child,mother always joke my tears are not worthy,it would be easy to fall down,but I don't think so.Because my feelings are abundant,most susceptible just can be compared crying,for people like us,I think should be larger than the average person more soft heart of that,we are too easily softhearted ,too easily moved,too easily to release our emotions,and I think it's nothing bad ,a very touching things make me cry,or is a very sad novel made me cry,this is a very normal thing!

When I was a children, I always crying when I met sad things. But now there is no such case anymore. So why so much difference for me? That's because when I was young I also lick to watch heart touching stories but I find the more I watch the more I cried! So now I try my best not to touch these kinds of movies or stories and replaced by the funny story. Life is wonderful so why not to enjoy it~

I'm also very easily to cry even though when I was just watching a touching movies or reading a sad stories. But whenever I have problem, I don't easily cry no matter how upsetting it is, and I always prefer to talk about it with my partner as soon as possible, and try to get his advice. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Nope actually it takes a lot to make me cry, in fact if someone upsets me my first reaction is usually controlled anger I just dont cry much unless someone go's out of there way to push me and hurt me or catches me on an off day. But generally I dont cry often and sometimes when I see other people cry dont really know what to do or how to feel I mean I know that counseling the person is the right thing to do but sometimes it can be so awkward, and confusing to handle especially if its an adult crying I guess people are just differnt when it comes to showing there emotions, I'm just not a cryer not that there's anything wrong with crying I just deal with things differently.

I think it happens to every woman, probably it's something of our nature, but maybe it doesn't happen frequently to women who have heavy or hard works like the women who work in prisions.

I'm a man, but I can cry buckets at the drop of a hat. Never in public though, and not when things go wrong for me, or I get upset by what someone says; I'm pretty tough in that way. I cry because I'm sentimental and romantic, and easily touched; a sad story of another's suffering, a sad movie; a romantic song; these things make me cry. I've always done this, ever since I was a kid, but I never show my tears to others. As a boy, I was pretty tough, no cry baby. No: I am a sentimental person; and that's just the way it is.

I do cry easily, a cry baby, they say. But crying I must say is very normal, it vents out emotions that after that you feel relieved and over with that. Sometimes, I prefer not to watch stories or movies that have sad aspects for the reason that it affects me easily..

Hi dear, yes, I do cry. It happened several times. My mom used to tell me also that don't cry like girls for silly things. Mostly if it hurts my feelings and whenever my sincerity is questioned and at many times whenever I fell that I am helpless on certain things. Normally, I used to think a lot about the worldly problems and thinking and thinking I feel so painful and without seeing anybody I used to cry. But it considerably reduced on these days. I stopped thinking too much and I feel so bad I don't know what it causes and I cannot control some times. But I used to cry and feel relaxed afterwards. Thank-s
