    It's the middle of the day & you're rehearsed

    Sometimes its a silent cry,

    like I'm crying and screaming but nobody hears me. Sometimes i cry really hard to the point where i can barely breath. Loneliness is something I've been battling with since 4th grade. I hate feeling lonely but i like being alone. It doesn't make any sense, it really doesn't...

    The Beauty of the World Has Made Me Sad, the Beauty That Must Pass"

    We can all do without the macho-man stereotype and the new man nonsense. I  am a man! A  human being with emotion! Deal with it ladies, you do not have a monopoly in this department. ;-)

    Tears

    In any circumstance[whether I am around people or really alone], I always have this sense of loneliness. I sometimes cry when I am alone. Why? I have no idea. Sometimes it is from music that speaks to me, things I have done to myself and people, but most times, my tears arrive...

    It Is Perfectly Natural

    Crying when you are alone is perfectly natural once and a while.  I cry at night when I can't sleep because I worry about things that I shouldn't worry about.  It gets out of control sometimes because I think about how I could have changed the past. ...

    I Can't Cry In Front of Others

    Not even when my heart is broken and my soul is battered. So I hold my tears until I am alone. I haven't cried for awhile, but I think it is cleansing and really does help you feel better.

    I Cry Because I Love

    Sometimes I'll cry when I think about someone I've lost, friends, grandparents, family members, co-workers and even aquaintances.   I find no fault in that.  I miss them and I loved them.  They are gone but there are times when their absence really hits...

    I am a huge cry baby lately.  I used to be able to keep my emotions in check but for the last month or so everything that happens makes me cry.  I think it is the magnitude of the things that have hit me all at once.  At least I hope it is that because if not then...

    Tears Speak To You

    There is sacredness in tears. They are not the marks of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tounges. They are messangers of overwhelming grief.......and unspeakable love.

    I cry in different ways.

    Of course, crying is preceded by stories. The tears all feel different and I don't know, I've not kept a teardrop data, no way of remembering which tear belonged to which story. Sometimes it is just a welling up, the tears are just caught from overflow, but you can feel the...

    I'm an introvert. It's difficult

    for me to confide and trust people. So when I feel sad, I cry by myself. I don't like crying infront of a lot of people because I don't like the feeling of being looked at as weak.

    I Cry Alot

    There are so many reasons for me to cry, but it's best not to do it in front of other people. Besides, I only think about sad stuff when I am alone. That is the only time that my mind is free to think about whatever and express it however I want to. And other people distract...

    I cry at times. Not always and not often but I do cry. It's only when I am alone. Whether that is the bathroom or in bed at night in the early hours of the morning. Sometimes the shame, confusion, upset and pain just get too much. I haven't cried in front of anyone for years...

    Because I Can

    It's a release.  Sometimes emotion is bottled up and you just need to let it out.  I have a friend who thinks that tears have never helped a situation, and maybe he's right.  But maybe crying is not about helping the situation, maybe it's more an expression of all...
