I Sometimes Cry When I'm Alone

    Me Too

     When I was little, I used to think I'll never cry when I grow up because I'll be able to live my own life and will be so much happier. I was so wrong!  I cry a lot nowadays, a lot more than I ever did as a child. The only difference is now there is no one to see me...

    So lately I have been very.

    .. Empty. Yeah I guess I can say that, it's been getting worse. I started crying today, just suddenly, I felt so incredibly lost. I can't be in my room anymore, the walls reminds me of all I have lost, all the tears I have cried. It feels isolated and narrow. I can barely be in...

    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 cry almost everyday now.

    I think it helps, and it does for a bit, but a few hours later, I want to cry again.

    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.

    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...

    I had to take my dog to the vet

    for of course shots, but when she leaves my side I can't help but to feel alone. I feel like she thinks I'm giving her up and that she's going to be alone. She's always by my side I can't think of a better dog or friend than her.

    I've always felt unloved by my family,

    it's always what I'm doing wrong and never anything I do right. They never ask me if I want to go out with them, even my father doesn't want to talk to me. I never noticed how lonely I felt when I'm at home alone, I sometimes cry when I just watch T.V., or I really cry when I...

    Why do I cry? I cry because all of my dreams are

    Watching this silly show.

    Some things line up with my life. Watching her cry over her dead relative with no support made me cry too about what I went through with grandpa.

    I can't help the emotions

    that come over me sometimes. I just break down and cry when I'm alone in my room or when no one is home in general. I cry about the past a lot, I cry about my present often. I just cry. I'm just plain sad, I don't think that I've ever been happy, or at least not in a long a...

    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.

    It is hard to live alone.

    Although affection was sporadic in my marriage, I still miss the occasional snuggle, hand holding, and just having someone there. It is hard to be alone all the time.

    When The Mask Slips And I Am Alone.....

    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...

    I sit here trying to be strong but it is not easy. Most the time I hide my hurt deep down but on nights like tonight it's almost impossible. I try to live for the moment but most the time I live for the future, it's easy to be happy looking at the future but looking at the moment...

    Here I sit again..still, alone with my broken heart and tears running down my face I miss what I had what was taken away from me. No one understands what's wrong or why I'm so upset so long after my life fell apart . Every memory every dream for the future gone and now I sit...

    I cry over lots of things. It really isn't difficult to make me cry. I'm just emotional like that. I can't really help it.Over the years, however, it has become increasingly obvious to me that most people don't deal well with crying. Because of this I try to be less emotional...

    I never used to cry much,

    then I lost my dear wife and soulmate to cancer. I now cry when I'm alone, every day. Sometimes it helps to relieve the loneliness and despair.

    Inner Strength And Struggle

    I live alone and there are several days where I feel not good enough. I am tired of going to a friend just for her to say "Sure you are." That doesn't mean anything. It sounds lame Like "Sure, cool...I guess you are worth something. I don't know why. I just feel bad saying you...

    I tend to keep things bottled up. I don't like feeling that I'm bothering people. I realize that it would be better telling people when I have problems. I'm working on it.
