    Default Is There Something Wrong With My Emotions?

    Recently I watched the movie Grave of the Fireflies, an anime movie about two young sibling children during WW 2 Japan. The film is considered one of the saddest films in existence, and will make just about anyone who watches it cry. I watched the movie with this fully in mind, and yet by the time the movie was over, I hadn't cried at all. I was sad, I almost was brought to tears by a few scenes, but overall I did not cry from the film. This is concerning to me; how is it that I was not able to cry at one of the most heart warming/hear wrenching films in existence? Is there something wrong with me? What does this mean? Or maybe I'm repressing my emotions? I'm perplexed by this, could someone help?

    You can be saddened without crying... I've had an experience of the sort. Some people are just slightly awkward about expressing emotion, even when alone (like Cameron Diaz's character in The Holiday).

    You are a perfectly sane person. Don't let your own awkwardness convince you otherwise.

    I would say it was because you already knew it was supposed to be sad and had expectations - maybe you had a desire to be brought to tears or alternately you were already protecting yourself from it going in.

    If you had watched it without specific knowledge, you may have experienced it more fully, more purely - I presume the way you wanted to.

    You can't force an emotional response. I wouldn't worry about your lack of response however. Wait until you hit mid-life - sentimental TV commercials will be able to bring you to tears.

    Maybe you have a low EQ.

    What PeaceBaby said. You were prepared to be moved, in other words expecting to be suprised.
