Well..I cry very easily..Some movies can make me cry..Some news clips make me cry too..Just this morning they showed a father returning home from Iraq; he went to his little boys classroom where hung a home made chain..each link representing the days his father had been gone..When they showed the footage of the little boy coming out of class and seeing his fahter..I cried when the little boy cried. I cry when I am misunderstood and if people speak harshly towards me..I base that on my childhood..things that happened.. I cry when I am overtired at the drop of a pin! What about you ..what makes you cry?

Actually I don't cry easily, I have a very strong personality but still have some weakness hiden in my heart. One that truly makes my heart touch and makes me crying is w/ regards to family matters. It's because I love them so much....if there's an instance... a sad, tragic or whatever it is, it really soften my heart and that makes me easily cry. Somehow, I'm not ashame about that, cry is a good tablet to cure whatever pain and burden that keeps instill in our hearts. As we cry out we pore out the toxic in our hearts and It's healthy for us. Keeping a sound mind, emotional and physical.

You are right ..crying is very much a part of our soul...It is necessary and God gave us tears not just for pretty decorations ..They are necessary and it's good to let them loose sometimes;)+

Sad movies makes my cry... (just like a song) but you know what, this is true. You ought to loosen up your eyes and give up tears especially when you got touched about the story. I think it would make me cry when one of my family cries, or just when i missed them.

I don't usually cry but I do cry when I am touched by some really good movies. Or when someone makes me really mad (I don't cry when I am sad though). Sometimes, I cry for no reason, not sure if it's a release of pressure/ stress or I am just cleaning my soul. I do feel better and more alive after crying though except eyes are all swollen.

In general I cry over sad movies, animal abuse, cruelty to any living being and unfairness in any level. Usually after I cry then I become angry and in my anger, I seek revenge. Once this anger is gone, I'll be smiling and chatty again. My husband said I'm cruel when crossed, so I'm not a cold cruel person to begin with. I won't hurt anyone or anything if they don't hurt me first. If I did, it wouldn't be intentional.

Really you take revenge easily? What is your matter of retalliation? What do you do when you seek revenge..Do you do anything to try to overcome this?

It could be a lot of things. usually I could tell if people did things intentionally or unintentionally. I could cry over both, but only the latter would create anger. Over the years I have let go many things. I learned that if I do this, something or someone will take care of it. Let's say someone hurt you intentionally, if you let go, someone else will hurt this person. I know it sounds strange but it happens so I keep telling myself this and it helps defuse my anger.

Sometimes I laugh so hard that I cry too....Tears seem to let loose with any extreme emotion..don't you agree?

I am very emotional. I cry for every little thing, and yes when I watch love movies or that are very emotional I cry, when I hear about a sad story I cry too. When I hear or see the news about tragedies I cry. If they speak too harsh to me I cry. When I am very stressed out I usually cry to let out my stress.

I cry at sad movies. When I see something on the news like as you say a father returning from Iraq and showing the reaction to seeing his dad I also start crying. When I watch a program where they show a abused child or animal the tears start flowing. I also do the same when they show that a child has been found and reunited with their parents.

Child abuse always makes me cry and I am sorry to know so many children all over the world are born in to situations that are so very hard and difficult; thus the parents respond with abuse ..It's sad to say but society is often the culprit in childr eabuse;)+

im the same way. some of the silliest things make me cry. movies for sure!! news clips too...even a number of commercials make me have to fight back tears. i also get all teary-eyed whenever the national anthem plays, or any singer hits an especially high note. a lot of songs make me cry. shoot even when the horse i want to win, actually wins the race i cry!! i have to get super mad to start crying though. and its usually cause i am so angry and cant figure out how to express anything that will be taken the right way and not just meant to be mean!
