mostly because its got to comeout somewhere and i am trying to control myself
oh yeah and during sex, just to stay on topic
I think I've only cried once during sex, but it was out of happiness.
I relate to the crying out of frustration thing. Like, you're so pissed off.. but you can't, because of the situation, act the way you'd like to.. the only other way to vent would be crying, it seems for me.
Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.
Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
prplchknz: i don't like it
When I'm extremely frustrated and feel like I can't do anything to get myself out of the situation or mood I'm in. Especially if I'm frustrated and feeling hopeless and misunderstood and someone kindly steps in and tries to understand me and help me fix things. When I empathize greatly with a character in a movie or on tv, etc. When someone I love dies. When I hear about animal cruelty. When a song lyric hits me in just the right way. When I'm really, really proud of a friend or family member--like watching my sister perform with her dance troupe when we were younger. When I find something really beautiful that resonates a truth somewhere inside--like recognition.
I really don't cry very often (and that's not a brag, kyuuei ) When I do, it's when I'm by myself. I'm not very in touch with my emotions when I'm around others. When I was younger, I thought something was wrong with me because I didn't cry when I left a friend at the airport, or when we graduated from high school, or all the other things my friends cried about. Or maybe I just thought something was wrong with them.
Weird stuff makes me cry, though. I can't sing the song "Walking in Memphis," because the imagery gets me every time. And it's not even really a sad song.
I remember reading this one story in the newspaper about some teenage boys who had been caught after dousing a puppy in paint, duct-taping his muzzle, and then throwing him in the oven where he burned to death. When I read it (and I was in public at the time) I wanted to cry out of anger. I didn't, though.
It was one of the few news stories that I've been terribly affected by in a long time.
As a side note, I think it's extremely annoying when people claim they won't cry at anything. If you simply just don't cry, and it's difficult to produce tears for you even if there's extreme sadness as an emotion involved.. all cool.. But it just irritates me when people brag about it like it somehow validates them as awesome. That sort of thinking only shows me immaturity by equating inferiority with emotion.
Not what I'm trying to come off as...just my emotions do not involve crying as a reaction, regardless of it would be better to or not. (Not crying/having watery eyes at a funeral of a close relative comes off as weird to other people....)
