    Depends what type of tears.

    Sure, we've heard of happy tears and the tears of sorrow. To me, tears are types of emotions. There are happy tears as said before, which is happiness. And sad tears, which are sadness. I'd like my happy tears to be concealed within me, so I can stay happy. But, there is nothing...

    I hate the feeling of being lonely.

    I don't like to cry in front of people or let people know I'm hurt. I hate knowing I can cry and I hate the feeling that makes it happen.

    Ogh! I Hate It!

    More like "I hate to be seen doing it". Very few of even my close friends have ever seen me cry, and only one teacher. I think it's shame-related with me. Not sure why, I've seen other people do it, I don't think less of them when they do, but this one right here typing...

    When ever I'm on the verge of tears I always

    get them back in... Can't show weakness. Can't show weakness. I tell myself so each time I am about to cry I stop myself... I've gotten control over the emotional ones to the point where the tears don't even swell up it's just the tears I get from physical pain I have to work on...

    I Do It Anyway.

    Crying. It's something I have a love-hate relationship with. I hate to do it, especially in the presence of other people. Not being able to hold back my tears makes me feel like I'm taking everything too emotionally, like I'm overreacting. But I do cry. Mostly when I'm sad or...

    Honestly I think everyone hates crying.

    If you are a person that likes to cry then wow you are the first person I know that likes to cry. For me crying just makes me feel weak and useless it just tears me apart. I loose all control and don't know what to do with myself. Grr crying is so depressing
