What makes you cry? Tears of joy or sadness?

I cry when I see movies with endings that have to do with the family bonding. Like anytime someone in the family dies and then the family has to cope with it. Or even if it ends up being a happy ending and the family members learn to love one another. That makes me cry. I also cry easily when I see someone who is vulnerable be taken advantage of - like old people, kids, animals, etc. What about you?

emotional things make me cry a lot. I feel moved even for small things when they are done to me by the loved ones.

I am not a big tear person, The only time I really break down and cry is when I am really angry and frustrated.

I cry at the drop of a hat. LOL I cry at sad movies alot or when someone I love is sick. I really hate to cry because my nose will turn red and it stay like that for awhile. If Im really happy I sometimes cry too.

I cry easily. I cry when I see something beautiful. I just saw a kodak commercial and I start tearing. It doesn't take much for me to cry. With something sad of course I cry. Sometimes it is not a good thing. Having to say goodbye to a friend at the airport is hard because I can never say what I want to say coz I start crying. I just get very emotional instantly.

I cry when something sad happens in a movie...even in cartoons. I don't think I really cry when happy, not yet anyway.

Right now I'm pregnant and EVERYTHING makes me cry. I actually cried the other day because we ran out of ketchup! Normally, things like children being abused, family or close friends dying, movies/songs with a close father/daughter bond, etc. make me cry. Oh, and One Tree Hill. So much stuff on that show just hits really close to home. I love the show and I'm totally addicted to it but it always makes me cry.

I cry when I watch love stories...whatever the ending may be. I cry when I see someone win in a contest. I cry when I get so happy and excited. I cry when I'm sad. I cry because I have feelings. I cry because I'm human. So don't be ashamed of crying, may it be tears of joy or sadness. Just be happy because you cry. It only means you're sensitive. It only means you're human.

I love to cry. I am a big crier! LOL i cry tears of joy. I cry because I am happy. I cry because I see others are happy. I cry when I see good people doing good things and are getting good things happening to them. I don't cry about the "sad" things. that is giving the "sad" things way to much of my time and attention. when you do that, the sad things don't go away

I cry about all the family hurts and especially when a parent is hurting a child. I also dont like family loss as it makes me extremely sad. I agree with you but even in sadness there is joy, if there is love.

though i try to hold it in, the truth is, i cry easily. when laughing, angry or when seeing emotional scenes in movies... thats why i prefer to watch a movie alone when i know that movie can make me cry. ^_^

Aren't we sisters from our past lives? ^_^ .. everything u said, that's what i am also. . . ohhhh, em starting to cry now. (tears falling down on my cheeks!) ... lol ... but seriously, i am a very emotional person. I cry easily when i'm sad. I dwell on the problem and cry like a river. But when i'm happy, it's more of a yahooo thing for me, jumping for joy. ^_^

I'm such a cry baby. I cry when I'm sad or remember something sad. When I watch sad movies, I get carried away and once I start crying, I will keep crying.
