I Hate Crying

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 278 People

    I am not a crier. I am not overly emotional

    like that, it feels weak and unnecessary to me for most things. I have never cried in front of anyone except my husband and my immediate family and even then very rarely. I come from a gaggle of criers who do not understand me, but that is ok - they can cry me a river, I will...

    I hardly ever cry. I only cry

    when people die. Or my eyes water due to allergies. I went through so much trauma as a child and throughout my life, that my tear ducts sting whenever I do try to cry or when I do. Recently, my best friends little brother got emitted into a hospital for something pretty big...

    Don't Cry! Breath in don't let them out,

    Hold your breath, Bite your lip, Just don't let them slip out. Tears sting my eyes, I git my teeth, Breath deep, Determined not to let them slip. I will not be seen so weak, Won't let one leak, No matter how hard it is.

    It seems that once I start.

    ..Every single thing that I have repressed since the last time I let my guard down comes flooding to the front of my mind, and I become inconsolable for a few minutes. I absolutely hate the feeling of losing control of my emotions. What's worse...is I hate the fact that there...

    If I Had A Choice..

    If I had a choice I would never cry. I think if there was a procedure to do it, I would have my tear ducts frozen up or something. I hate how easily I cry, and how people look at you like you are weak when you do.

    Grrrr

    Worse than that, I still can't shake all the years I was told I was weak nor did I ever understand the statement that I would be given something to cry about. I hate it.

    No Tear Zone

    Now growing up I always had to be strong. Grew up in an abusive household so not much time for tears. Had to take care of my baby brother and most times had to help my mom. So I learned to keep everything inside and to this day I still do. My mom cried all the time which is...

    No Tears.

    Crying is only a sign to me of giving in. Oh, you cannot let them beat you down. Those words they say; spiteful, bitchy, hurtful words...Pass them aside. Though they hurt to the core, don't let it bring you down. That's right... Head up. Walk away. No tears.

    I Hate Crying At Movies

    Call me strange, but if I know or even suspect that a movie will make me cry, I tend to avoid it, I know it sounds like a cliche, but there is enough to cry about in this world already. A lot of people find this surprising behaviour for a girl, but oddly enough, I don't like to...

    No matter how happy I am.

    It never lasts. I lay down at night and I think about all the days ahead of me. Days without him. It kills me to know that were apart. I miss him. Even if we talk every minute of everyday, I miss him. It gets worse at night. When it's dark and quiet. I'm left alone with my...

    I actually hate crying.

    It makes me feel weak and pathetic and needy. Whenever I cry it doesn't help get emotions out or whatever, it just makes me feel like a stupid child.

    It reminds me I also hurt.

    ..it also reminds me I'm weak for allowing influences in my heart. I irk at the thought of falling in love again and feeling helpless, powerless and surrendered...yet tears and pain are my Constant reminder that I am alive...and strong enough to live another day.

    I hate seeing women cry* It's the worst thing,

    they look so sad, and then when they try to catch their breath, it just makes my heart melt. The worst time this ever happened was when a very beautiful and lovely friend of mine said to me, 'Why doesn't he want me?' and then started crying. That was a horrible thing to see.

    The One.

    The worst type of crying is the silent one. The one when everyone is asleep. The one you feel 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...

    I feel so vulnerable

    when people see me me crying. At that moment they could say anything and it will either make me feel happy or even worse. I hate when I give people that chance to potentially hurt me. I figure I would rather act like I am always happy and break down later than to break down in...

    I Did Enough

    When I was growing up and got spanked, I cried and cried, sometimes for hours, until the soreness in my bottom went away. When I saw a sad movie or television program, l dissolved in floods of tears, even if it was only a story. And even if I knew the storyline. When members of...

    I have to be having a pretty horrible day to ever actually cry about it. I won't cry in front of anyone if I can help it, and I actually don't much like crying by myself. I don't really know why, I just think there's better things I should be doing other than crying about...

    Idk if this is just me or.

    . Well anyway when I feel like I'm about to cry I just can't cry. I will not cry at funerals or sad movies. I just hate crying. When somebody is trying to tell me something serious I can't be serious. I try to ignore it and make a joke or talk about something else.

    I haven't cried once since like, ninth grade. That's about four years ago. This excludes laughing really hard and the tears that escape when yawning a lot. Since that point in time, I've gotten and broken up with a girlfriend, graduated from high school, and watched the entire...

    Tears Dry On Their Own
