Crying for no reason at all.

There are times when I think that I'm going nuts. Well, I guess I'm overly emotional these days, but weird because I have no reason for being emotional. I watched some series and whenever I see someone happy or a romantic movie or something that stirs the emotions, I start to cry! I mean, I just watched a contest right now about baking cakes and when the winner was announced, I cried! What the..?!?! I am wondering if I'm alone at this. Whew! Have a great mylot experience ahead!

You know what, I had become emotional once, when I was pregnant. It was kind of over-reacting because even if like you, I just watched something on tv and suddenly I cried like I watched a drama series or like that. I don't know what made me emotional like that, but looking back at that time, I just kind of laughed at myself. Oh well, pregnant women sometimes do weird things aside from that.

The problem here is the fact that I'm not pregnant and I used to be so tough. I am at the point in my life when it seems all the "toughness" before has vanished and the emotion is double! I couldn't believe I tear up easily!!! hehehehe.. Whew! I wished I could say that it's all because of the pregnancy, but then again, I'm not pregnant!

That's perfectly normal my friend. We have all those moments wherein we tend to cry that easy. I believe crying is a therapeutic way to release some tension, stress, disappointments etc. Also, a good way to clean our tear ducts. Thats why, cry as you please. I'm for one, as a man, sometimes cry for anything. Thanks

crying - Crying (also called sobbing, weeping, bawling and wailing) is shedding tears as a response to an emotional state in humans. The act of crying has been defined as "a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus, without any irritation of the ocular structures".[1] A related medical term is lacrimation, which also refers to non-emotional shedding of tears.
A neuronal connection between the lacrimal gland (tear duct) and the areas of the human brain involved with emotion has been established. Some scientists believe that only humans produce tears in response to emotional states [2] while others disagree.[3] Charles Darwin wrote in The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals that the keepers of Indian elephants in the London Zoo told him that their charges shed tears in sorrow.
Thanks for the response. I guess it's one of those moments, but I have noticed that as I grew older, I shed more and more tears for anything! hehehe.. But yeah, sometimes it's healthy and I guess it is indeed healthy for me because I'm not really depressed anyways, so it must be just me being emotional. Thanks again for the response, have a great mylot experience ahead!

That's not all too strange. I think that many people can be very teary if they watch a moving movie, or something like that. I think that I get like that sometimes too, even if the ending is predictable. I think music plays a bit part in this process. Sometimes I wonder how I even manage to cry so easily and yet other times it doesn't bother me at all.

hi laydee, you are not alone with your feelings. i too there are times that i cry or became emotional especially i lost my mom . She is the only parent i have and we have been together for 40years now, it always saddens me when i remember her. So when i encountered some movies or stories that is about mother and child relationship i usually cant help it but to be emotional. I always get strength with our creator, the Lord almighty.

As a guy I find it incredibly difficult to cry, I was taught as a child that boys don't cry and it was weak for a boy to cry, looking back I see how crazy and partly abusive this teaching from elders was. If I was able to cry I would have healed quicker from the abuse I received both as a child and as an adult. I would love to be able to cry. Crying is very healing, it's your body's way of coping with life and the cr*p it throws at you. There are only two films that have me in tears and you saying you cry when you watch a movie, it obviously moves you, well the two films are Titanic and Star Wars Episode 3 sounds a little crazy I know but those two films are guaranteed for me to cry, so for me they are therapy. You are not alone!

Hey,laydee.I think I have the same feeling with you. When hearing stories or watching TVs,we imagine we are leading characters ourselves. So we will be emotional. Do not worry. It shows you are a lovely girl. You heart is softer then the others. But laydee should try to control feeling. Be a brave girl. I think we have a ot in common. Can I make a friend with you? Here is Judy.

Be careful dear, sorry I think you could have the begining of depression. I'd like to ask you to never take medicines but go with natural teas and everything natural and non addictive you can find but that you seek for a psychologist. If you treat in the begining maybe there's hope.

I have been through this also and I know why i cry when i see some victory on tv. I feel for the person. I feel how good he must be feeling o have won. It is tears of happiness. I have cried when there are sad scenes also but then if it is too natural. Some actors cannot make it that natural to make the audience cry. ..Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

You're not alone laydee. I feel the same way. It is like something in chest is going to explode and tears starting to come out in my eyes. I don't know also why we feel like that. I was in fact watching a boxing match before, it was an undercard match during Pacquiao's fight. During the whole fight, this guy won't really do anything, he is already bleeding and in the eyes of all, he would lost that fight. But before the fight ends, his opponent got tired and he took advantage of that and knocked him out. My husband was shocked as I really cried. He was teasing me if I am somehow related to that boxer. Crazy me

Is there something that you are trying to forget or get over.. I mean emotionally.. That could trigger the crying even if at the moment there is nothing linking the two.. Hate to say it but are you or will you have your time of the month within the next couple of days.. This can trigger the crying.. Or the big one; is there a chance that you are pregnant?
