I Hate Crying

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 325 People

    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.

    Tears Dry On Their Own

    Last night was nothing special. Nothing amazing happened, no painful and traumatic experience occurred...I simply realized just how lonely I really am. And I cried. I felt so silly for crying over something I can't really fix right now, and I hate crying in general. But I couldnt...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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 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 used to do that crying thing about every

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
