    Am 17 and I haven't shed a single tear drop

    for about 10 years now. The last time I did was out of fear from watching a horror movie 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and I was like 7 then. Am not tryna act all tough or anything, it just never crosses my mind that I can cry and I find it strange too when I see men cry (am not...

    It's just something that was ingrained in me

    from my father. I cried for the last time at three years old. It's the saddest thing to be incapable of crying. It closes a whole world of emotion to you.

    I never cry. It's been

    so long since I've cried that I've forgotten what it feels like. My eyes feel dry and the look red and puffy. My cheeks feel sticky and my chest feels numb and fuzzy. I feel empty. I'm scared and I feel alone. I don't wanna cry anymore...

    Not In Four Years.

    I have not shed a single tear in four years, and it was an extraordinary event that had taken place to cause those tears. Before that day, I had not cried in 8 years.

    I Never Cry

    Yes, I have been called an army Sargent a couple of times, oh and don't forget that joke "I got my tear ducts removed" which would be impossible, because then your eyes would dry up. But it is odd, It is not like I do not feel that pounding aching sadness, because I have. It...

    I Never Cry

    At times my eyes may tear at a love story or something terribly sad but I never cry. The last time I cried was when I was 10 years old. Everyone used to make fun of me and this kid was making fun of me so I ran into the house crying and my dad locked me out. He said that I wasn't...

    I never cry because i trained myself not too.

    i haven't cried since i was five years old but i learned that crying solves nothing. i have endured many things that would normally make anyone cry . yet i have not shed a tear yet . i don't know why instead of crying i enter my meditation for it relaxes me.

    I Laugh Instead of Cry

    I really haven't cried since... I don't remember when. I guess when I was a kid I'm sure. Over the years, I've some how managed to Laugh instead of Cry. Is it the same emotion only used differently? I'm sure this all relates to when I was in school. From grades 1-8, I was either...

    Almost Never

    In the past 8 years I haven't cried once.  I've felt tears coming, but I've always been able to suppress them.  I can't bring myself to cry, even when I'm alone.  Although I feel like crying almost every night.
