I Hate Crying

    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...

    I Refuse

    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...

    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...

    The only reason I don't like crying is

    because I get bad headaches afterwards.

    I no people always say crying a normal,

    but I cry to much, and how badly I try not to it happens. Like with my brother the other day hitting me in the stomach so hard it left me dizzy. I couldn't help but cry, I looked pathetic saying " ARE You backing down why are You laughing". And when he says "Your a woman your...

    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 burns my eyes and gives me a headache.

    I rarely cry, but when I do it takes forever to stop. I can't remember the last time I cried in front of somebody, I don't think it's healthy to not cry sometimes. But I just hold the tears back because who wants to see a crying whiny mess. I know I don't.

    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...

    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.

    I can't stop crying like now.

    All I think about is the baby that'll never be in me. No one gets it no one gets how much I want one. I would do anything to get pregnant. Literally anything. I got no one to talk to about it.

    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    It seems that once I start.

    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.
