    Heard It Enough When I Was Younger........

    Mom was big on that. Get over things, suck it up. Stuff like that. The ex was bad too. Guess I have to find someone who will actually care about WHY I'm crying instead of worrying about me stopping. :(

    Why Should I?

    My boyfriend is the worst one for that.  I have quite a temper and when I used to get upset with him, I leashed out and physically hurt him by pushing him or scratching, stuff like that.  Well I hated myself for being like that and my bf threatened to leave me for it...

    Crying Shames Me

    I get embarrassed if I cry. I hate crying in front of others. It's my emotions on the line. But if I cry, don't tell me to ******* stop, let me cry and comfort me! That's all.

    I'm Not Allowed to Cry...

    I'm a crybaby.  I cry every time I feel bad, I did something bad, and everything around me is bad.  Several times in the past was I told not to cry or to stop crying..and yeah, this makes me cry even more.  Every time I do stupid things, like I overlooked the best...

    Crying. I despise crying.

    It's amazing how a person's simple words or actions can alter your mood. I cry for you (if you seem incapable). I cry with you (when you need a shoulder). And sometimes I cry for me (when I know you won't).

    I detest it when people call you a crybaby just

    because you're simply doing a regular human action. Most of the time I always have accurate reasons to cry. My class makes fun of me because I have a shaking problem and how I look. Sometimes I get headaches and feel this pain in my body and it causes me to cry in front of...

    In my childhood, I cry easily.

    My mom hate it, she told me to stop crying. Crying is only for babies. I'm not a baby anymore. I know the way she said that to make me independent & grow up. But it didn't help at all. I grew up I never cry in front of anyone anymore, only in my room by myself almost every night...

    Live And Let Cry.

    I have very, very seldom cried in front of anyone, except when I was little of course, for scraping my knee and stuff like that, you know. I don't cry in front of anyone now. But every time I'm not smiling, even if I'm not even sad or anything, I hear at least one person say...

    Seriously there is nothing wrong with crying.

    Its a way to let out emotion and a form of release. Especially at memorial services.

    Don't Tell Me to Stop

    It's one thing when you're getting patted on the back and told softly, "There, there, don't cry..." But it's another thing when someone tells you to stop crying like you're doing something wrong or stupid. "Ugh, just stop crying already." I hate that. It's...

    Stop Crying!

    Have you often wondered, as I have, how rediculous it was for parents to say after a spanking "Stop that crying right now or I'm gonna give you something to cry about". Would you be crying if they hadn't ALREADY given you something to cry about?

    I feel sad.. may be its just the seasonal blues.

    .or may be not.. I don't understand why people just cant let you be sad!? They cant see you happy either. People have weird ways and they love poking their nose into others business. Whether a person is happy or sad isn't any of their concern or is it? They love to ask questions...

    Once my mum scolded me

    and sort of slapped me, I cried. I was asked to stop. "No one's dying, why r u crying?" that's what she said. If i'm hurt, why can't i cry? Do i not have the right to cry? Why force yourself to stop crying? Why r u asking me to stop? I'm a human, I cry. You cry too right??
