    I Dont Really Know Why

    have and all this other stuff I get mad alot and I get sad and depressed. I really never cry though. Not at funerals never. I had to make myself look like I was crying at my Grandma's funeral. With all the emotions I feel you would think I would cry more often. The last time I...

    What Is It Like To Cry From Emotions?

    I know how it sounds, but aside from getting spankings as a child, I've never cried in my life. The last time I've cried, including spankings, was close to 10 or 11 years ago in middle school, and that was because I had forced tears to come out of my eyes. I've never shed a tear...

    Haven't In Years

    The last time I cried was at my father's funeral in January of '06. It's been a long time, and I've been through a lot, but I still don't ever seem to cry, even though I'd sometimes like to.

    When I cry, sh** is at its lowest,

    and I feel like up is not an option. Right now, I am neutral-numb, I don't feel good or bad. (Well a little bad, but not enough to rock the boat) I have only cried majorly 3 times so far in my life.

    I've cried twice in the past 12 years

    and both were from anger. I don't cry and I honestly don't know how to cry. The weird thing is that I have had a lot of traumatic things happen and for years I had the most severe form of bipolar (ultra-ultra rapid cycling.) I didn't cry when my nephew died, I didn't cry when...

    Not As Often Anymore

    At one point in my life, I would and did cry at the drop of a hat.  I would find places to hide when I felt that overpowering feelings that I needed to release.  I hated myself for being so emotional back then.Now I find that the tears are only shed when it is something...

    We live in a world where you're told to let

    your emotions out in a controlled setting. At least, I do. As I child, I was taught it's good to cry, healthy even. Those who say it is a weakness are berated by society for it. Though it is not socially acceptable to cry for very long, and there are only certain things you can...

    Why Can't I Cry?

    Ever since my life started in high school I have started to become more closed off to people around me. I don't talk to many people or show any kind of emotion when required, for example at my grandfather's funeral everyone else was in tears and I just stood there blankly not...

    Frozen Tears.

    I was bullied for crying excessively as a child. Because of this I have grown up believing that it is pathetic and weak to cry all the time. Sometimes I want to cry but cannot. I still do cry, but only about once a month when I am extremely stressed out or depressed. Dissociating...

    Sometimes I think of some really sad things

    that have happened / are happening and feel like a good cry, but the tears seldom come. I wonder how many people feel like this, and if it is more common for males...generally speaking?

    I Don't Cry Often, But I Am Crying Now

    I am crying as I am writing this message. And since I don't cry as often as people think I should, I guess i'll tell you why I am crying and what actually makes me cry. Last year I moved over 600 miles away from my sisters and their kids that I love to death. We all have a close...

    I don't ever feel the need to cry.

    Nor do I really get sad. When something sad happens, i have to fake sadness. Except for one time when my dog died. That is really the only thing that i have actually cried in quite a while. Well, sometimes I might cry out of anger, but that's because i hold in my anger which...

    But when I do, it's deep.

    And it's hard. Every time I cry, I feel like I'm about to lose my life. And every time I go through this; I feel: why can't my life end? If life can make me feel like I'm about to lose, why won't I lose? It's Christmas, and the last time I felt this alone, was ThanksGiving...

    ...seriously, Like, Maybe Twice Per Decade

    I don't really know why my emotions are stunted, but I hardly ever, and I mean ever, cry, and when I do it will be triggered by the oddest circumstances. I had already been married a couple of years the first time my wife saw me cry, and that was at a county fair, when I passed...
