    Ugh so ugly scrunched up face,

    puffy red eyes, super snot leakage! A little tip is to assist in the prevention of tear spillage...run your tongue back & forth across the roof of your mouth.

    Because sometimes it's my therapy

    and I need to release what I feel and then I'm able to move on but sometimes my eyes and heart have a mind of its on.

    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.

    The last time that I really cried was

    when I saw my great grandpa die. He was one of the closest people that I was close to and I trusted him with the world. I just remember that he stayed alive for me until I showed up and then I told him that it was okay to go and then he passed away. That was more than 6 years...

    Does this happen to any of you?

    ? That you wanna talk about a serious matter, but you know the moment you'll open your mouth, you'll burst into tears? Does it happen to any of you or it's just me? Like, when I wanna say something about a serious matter, like talk about my emotions or how I feel about a...

    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...

    Like who does like people seeing them cry right?

    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...

    everyday I drive those lonely 8 miles home. It never fails, the radio plays some old sad song. Any ol song will do, it will have a line or two that will bring me to my knees. I have tried the silence but its worsened by your pressing memories and the reasons why you didn't love...

    I thought I was close to this guy.

    Crying in front of people makes me vulnerable.

    I hate feeling vulnerable and exposed. I hate it with a burning passion. If I ever feel like I have to cry, I remove myself from everyone's vicinity. Even if it means spending a few minutes in a bathroom stall. I would rather that than be vulnerable. I also don't like it when...

    One of my best friends was a triplet

    and had two brothers. One of the brothers and I were good friends and I secretly had a crush on him. The triplets were going to move away because their parents were divorced. A lot of girls and I would not stop crying.

    Crying in front of people is not something I

    enjoy doing. Its basically letting my guard down. I'm weak and vulnerable when I cry. I've always had to be the strong one. When I cry, its just proving to people that I'm not as strong as I wish I was.

    I've always been uncomfortable crying in front

    of people because I was raised to believe that crying is a sign of weakness. Not that I still believe that, but it's very hard to break away from what has been ingrained in you.

    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 hate when people see me cry.

    I feel like I'm weak when people see me cry. I know that it's natural and that everyone does it but... That's just how I feel. I can't let people see me cry. If they do see me crying I feel even worse. Like I'm not good enough and that I'm weird.
