I Do Not Cry In Front Of Others, I Cry When I Am Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26 People

    It's Personal

    I'm not comfortable crying in front of others. If I did I'd be embarrassed. I cry to make myself feel better if I am upset or sad about something. I want to be alone when that happens. I'm not one of those people who cries to get attention or sympathy from people.
