I Do Not Like People to See Me Cry

    Because I don't want people to think I'm less

    mentally strong than I am. You'd want to come up with something pretty good in order to hurt my feelings. Well, you still don't hurt my feelings, you just make me feel bad for about a minute & I get over it. Just like that. I'm weird but then my mind is more than capable to deal...

    I hate the feeling of being weak

    and vulnerable. I'm not okay in a general sense, but I have been called attention-seeking and a drama queen too many times to let people know that I hurt.

    You are a ghost of a person.

    Hardly existing between two worlds. Passing through softly. Almost never heard. You are a whisper Silence. Keeping hidden. Your specialties. And in all of your solitude. You've lost touch with yourself. Rot and decay A sign. You've been here Not long ago. Now you've...

    I hate letting people see

    or hear me cry over the phone. I feel like I'm showing weakness, that I'm showing them I'm easy to break. I hate feeling vulnerable, when I cry in front of people I feel like I'm giving them the chance to walk all over me, there's only three people that I am comfortable enough...

    Just like that, you walk away from my life

    leaving me with pain, and you even don't bother to turn your back looking at me the last time. Do you hurt like me when you go?

    Crying: A Strength Or Weakness?

    Now I've always been a firm believer in keeping problems to myself. I've lived by the mantra "no one likes a downer!", and have strived to always be happy and content. That's what everyone strives for, isn't it? Happiness. The drive to be happy is what motivates us to do any...

    Mens don't cry!... But when I do I prefer doing it completly alone. I need the whole appartment to be empty before I cry. Because I don't want people around me to know how hurt I actually am. It's not like I don't want them to help me. It's because no one can help me... So I...

    I don't really cry anymore.

    at least not in front of anyone. I've been told all my life that I'm too whiny and I cry too much. Well if they want me to shut that part of my emotions down, I will and that's what I'm doing. I've come close to crying in the last year, but I don't. Screw that. These people don...

    1) I rarely cry because I see it

    as a weakness. 2) I am a veeeeery ugly crier. 3) If you do see me cry, I suggest you look away before you turn into stone.

    I rarely cry in general.

    I haven't allowed anyone to see me cry since I was 9 years old. I grew up being told that crying was just another form of weakness, and to never let people see me crying if i am

    I had cried myself to sleep many times.

    No one can know, I always thought because it's for the best. Mostly for my sake. Because I had been hurt and been left so many times that I just can't let anyone see me weak. I have to be strong because I only have me most of the time.

    I cried in front of my running coach once.

    ..thankfully he pretended he didn't notice it. What frustrates me is that I cry when I'm stressed, and I can't hold it back. Shoot.

    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 will try very hard not to let someone catch me crying, I don't like people feeling sympathetic for me. Unless it's in a circumstance where everyone else is crying such as at a funeral, but even then I will try to cut my tears short. It probably has something to do with the...

    Girlfriend was on the narrow edge of ending it.
