    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.

    ive always tried so hard to stay true to my

    feelings and to everyone i let into my life, and i always managed to keep this brave face, happy face smiling, professional appearance that NOTHING can SHAKE ME ... and whenever i am challenged and pushed to my limit and this happened a few times in my life, i just run and hide...

    Sometimes just being alone

    and crying it out is the best solution.

    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 never had a true family.

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

    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...

    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.

    I look so ugly when I cry.

    My face twists up and I look like a constipated baby. XD

    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.

    I struggle to open up to people

    because I don't want to cry in front of anyone and I don't know how to be emotional in front of people but I feel so alone when I cry and want so badly to have help from my family.

    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 believe crying is not a weakness.

    I believe that crying is going through so much you have to pour out your emotions in some way. People seeing me crying is like showing people all of my emotions. Facing the dreaded what's wrong? That question is the most confusing to answer with millions of things wrong. Crying...

    I hate for anyone to see my tears.

    .. Or worse if they try to comfort me while I've got tears streaming down my face... It only make it more horrible... I start bawling like a baby and completely fall to pieces... I'm use to comforting myself in my own way... Funerals I do all I can to try and avoid groups or the...

    because I don't like it when they see me weak and vulnerable, but that's kinda weird because people who shouldn't already did. but it's getting really damn difficult. Stuff is really hitting me and playing with my emotions right now and it really hurts a lot. I don't know how to...

    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.

    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...

    and I have to be strong. I'm a single mom and I work very hard. It's just so hard when people ask me how I'm doing. I want so much to break down and let it all out but I just can't. I'm constantly on the verge of tears but I just can't bring myself to do it. I just smile and say...

    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.

    It's embarrassing and I feel vulnerable.

    It's not so bad if I'm alone even if people know what's up.

    family and friends, I hate for them to see me cry. I feel like they look at me as being strong and having them see me cry makes me feel weak and awkward around them

    I don't like people seeing me cry

    because they act like they and fix it when they can't. it makes me feel worse to let someone see me cry. To me its showing them that I am weak.

    *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...

    whenever I want to cry I go to my bedroom to

    the bathroom in there. I lock the door, turn on the tap and cry. I feel disgusting crying infront of people. I feel vulnerable and I hate it.

    I do not like people to see me cry,

    but sometimes the past lingers. Being Sexually Abused as a child & having my ex-partner mentally, physically & sexually abuse me for 3 1/2 years can trigger darkness. When it happens, I isolate myself and cry alone because I don't want to show weakness.

    If I don't his back my sadness

    or my unhappy emotions then people will start to question me. So I don't cry were people can see and if I do I hide it. So I put on a smiley face but some days I go crazy because I am unexpectedly hyper.
