    I Do As Well

    Beautiful and Dangerous by Desmond Dekker is one that made me cry. Mainly, because of a woman. She dumped me, but know what? I still love her.

    Sad movies, happy reunions,

    tear jerker stories, etc. make me feel better. I love a long and hard cry. The release of emotions is so powerful.

    See for me crying after watching a sad movie

    or an anime it makes me feel human, it makes me feel as if there's still something worth fighting for. Crying makes me feel like a good person because I still hold in my heart a strand of sympathy. Does anyone else feel the same, or is it just me?

    Because I Know The Opposite Is True

    Not crying when you need to cry. It leaves you with a lot of 'stuck' pain. I would have preferred to cry more easily.

    I don't cry as much as I used to.

    .. I suppose when I am crying it means I'm really hurting.
