    One time in school, back

    before my stalking days, there was this one teacher who I REALLY hate now, but that is a different story... He was a different kinda teacher, young, most girls in my grade said he was "attractive" which I didn't understand. (The people that know me would understand I like people...

    I cry alone, usually cry in bed.

    My friends let me know if they feel sad n depressed. They cry in front of me and I comfort them. But I never let my friends see me cry. I don't know why, just so hard to accept letting others see me cry. Sometimes I really feel depressed, so tired and hv so much stress, I cry in...

    I dont like people to see me cry

    because I was always made fun of for crying. I also don't like people to see me cry because I feel extra weak when they do.

    I do not like people to see me cry

    because I feel that people will think I'm weak and I can't be strong, or they feel at that point and time that they have power over me,so I put on a cover and cry when I'm alone is that weird?

    I am a strong person the rock

    or stability in many of my relationships. People depend on my strength so I feel like I can't cry in front of them. Is that wrong of me?

    I hate it when I get done crying,

    and then someone asks "have you been crying"? I try to hold back the tears but then I lose it and cry even more.

    And only do so with those I trust.

    Breaking through barriers to find the source of pain is exhausting. Those that see my liquid pain. Know that I trust you.

    I really don't like people to see me cry,

    but it's like when they ask me if I'm okay or is something wrong I start crying. I've been crying ever since I was in PK3;my parents said when I was a baby I was really quiet though so I have no clue how I came to be a "cry baby". My first day of school in PK3 my mom had to go to...

    I never had a true family.

    So my friends raised me. And my friends were mostly guys. So i learned quickly not to cry.

    I cried in front of my teacher

    because I failed my final that I worked so hard for. I never cry in front of anyone cause I feel like I let them down somehow. If I cry in front of you, something is really wrong.

    When I did something stupid over the summer,

    I ended up crying In front of my close friend, and boyfriend. I still beat myself up about it. I feel weak when I cry in front of others, and even tho they tell me that it's okay, I still find the idea mortifying.

    I really don't know the last time I allowed

    myself to cry in general. Any time I cried or showed emotion my parents would push me away for me to solve it on my own, and as a result I want to cry I can feel the tears, but I end up sucking it up and just drown myself if the overwhelming emotion that I cant vent about...

    *WARNING: I'm complaining

    and I'm very sorry I'm complaining but I have to get it out and no one by any means needs to feel obligated to read beyond this point. Consider yourselves warned* It's very hard. In my mind, for me to cry it shows that I am weak. I don't feel my problems are worthy of tears...

    Everyone thinks of me like I'm some child

    and I hate it so when I cry, I'm scared that everyone will treat me like I'm some kid and will never consider me as a mature, serious teenager. It lowers my self-esteem.

    that I trust because it makes me feel weak and I'm not very fond if that. Also I feel like people would give me empathy if I was crying and that isn't something I like.

    The worst type of crying is the silent one.

    The one when everyone is asleep. The one where you felt it in your throat, and your eyes become blurry from the tears. The one where you just want to scream. The one where you have to hold your breath and grab your stomach to keep quiet. The one where you can't breathe anymore...

    I don't like to cry in front of people

    My friend died the other day of cancer.

    His funeral was today and I couldn't be there and I felt so bad. Someone messaged me in class saying that they passed on my love and regards to them and I walked out. Broke down. My teacher came into the bathroom and saw me cry and hugged me. Then some of the girls I never talk...

    When I cry, I feel weak.

    The feeling of weakness makes me uncomfortable. Recently, after a few extra stressful years of life, I began seeing a counselor. Among many things, I am learning to let my feelings come and accept them as they are, not necessarily trying to analyze their presence. The other...

    I've always been the strong one,

    wherever I go I have to stay solid. I'm known for my confidence and strength, so when people see me cry...I just feel weak, I loose confidence. I'm the one they cry on, not the one to cry. I help, but never been helped. I care about others more than me. I really hold my tears...

    I cry alone. To me, crying in front of people is

    so awkward, it's like being naked on both inside and outside; also it makes myself weaker. Some may like hugs and consolation when they are crying, but for me hugs before I begin to and consoles after I stop please. I don't mean I don't like hugs and consoles, but just leave me...

    Whenever I cry, I try to cover my eyes,

    my mouth, or my entire face. I just don't feel comfortable with people seeing my tears fall down my face. I don't know why. I just don't.
