    I'm not going to get to actually say goodbye to

    him face to face before he leaves tomorrow morning for basic training. It is destroying me. All I want to do is go home and cry.

    I cried in front of a school counsellor I

    didn't like three years ago and I'm still sour about it. Crying makes me feel weak, and I hate for people to see that side of me. I've only ever cried in front of my immediate family, and even then I will always run to my room and hide in bed to cry. I won't even cry in front of...

    In the past I had many moments in

    which I was deeply hurt. I cried a lot back than. At a certain age I thought about being strong and to stop weeping. I trained myself to not cry and definitely not before people! Later I found out I was getting frustrated, building up all the Sadness inside instead of letting it...

    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...

    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 really hate people seeing me cry.

    I feel pitied, and I just don't like it. I cry a lot in private where nobody will see me. Not even my older sister, who is my best friend.

    Don't know why... I can't help

    but see crying as being weak. Think that's just what I was told growing up, to never let anyone see me cry because it shows everyone how weak and vulnerable I can be and people can hurt me. It has always stuck with me so I do my very best not to cry in front of people.

    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...

    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 a knees. I have tried the silence but its worsened by your pressing memories and the reasons why you didn't love me...

    I like watching others cry though.

    I want to cuddle them. If I can comfort them, I feel less lonely.

    The only time people will see tears they are

    tears of rage and uncontrollable anger. The heart broken, lonely tears are behind closed doors. No one to see the weakness and pain.

    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...

    My grandmother always counselled me against

    showing emotion in public. Tears are for private times, she contested. I have private times when my passions subsume me. I have been upset many times by boyfriends in the past.

    I've always been the strong one,

    emotionally and physically, in my household. Through out my time as a firefighter I've seen horrible thing but I don't let anyone see me break down. I hold it all in until I can't and I just let it all out when I'm alone.
