What Makes You Cry?

 Cass (@Lanceratheart)7 years, 10 months ago

I’ve been going around to a couple of my friends and asking them this question, looking for a little bit of insight on human experience and how everyone feels so differently. What makes you cry? such a vulnerable question.

@anjelica, That was my goal. It takes a little touch of genius to be able to make fun of what comes naturally to us.

Things that make us cry? Try questioning what makes our voice crack. :)

By the way @lanceratheart it’s really a great question, but you should take a look at the same topics on the site about it.

Like these.

what makes you cry?

crying over spilled milk

On crying

Personally, I’m fascinated with some of the responses, but this is my favorite:

@ijesuschrist

AI made me cry, the teddy bear.
The Bridge to Teribethia made me ball. I was pissed off at the ending.
Beautiful music coupled with inspiring quotes. So simple.
Sasho’s grace.

Such a beautiful human being.

I shed a tear whenever I inscribe something honest.

often when i cry the reason is, why? i hurt by someone who was very close to me? was it my fault that i let him to hurt me or his fault who use me? i cry why still im thinking about him? sometimes i cry why i can’t change my poor condition? i feel hopelessness or when i listen to a song which remembers me about my past memorize i cry from my heart… after half hour, i stop it and i feel relax. i say to my self : hey ! the world has not finished, you have learned good lessons from your past! be happy and don’t worry about future.

@optimystic, That’s what honours you around others. That’s what’s awesome.

@aalia, That’s what’s awesome too.

@tangledupinplaid21, I think you need to be more brave with your personality, because what doesn’t is what will influence us.

@beyond, it honestly depends on the day. There are days (a couple each month on average I would say) where literally almost anything makes me tear up, and then sometimes I go weeks or months without crying. Usually when I cry it is the result of holding back emotions for too long and then they pile up and assault me all at once.

@tangledupinplaid21, Why… do you think of it as an assault :D

Ellie (1,363)M (@tangledupinplaid21) 7 years, 10 months ago ago

@beyond, because ignored emotions all suddenly bursting forth is painful. Plus it always just happens to be that this happens to me while I am at work and can’t cry. That’s the worst feeling ever.

@tangledupinplaid21, What if I told you that I’m the same way, but either laughter or crying is just a realization of the intensity of my emotions? Something makes me laugh and then something makes me cry, because I’m always vulnerable. And, well, it’s who I am. Why would I let something painful happening?

For the beauty of it I often cry when I watch a bird flying in the sunset. Nature is beautiful.
I cried for hours and days when I had to leave my military dog a couple of years back. We’d spent every day together for about a year and then suddenly we cut the ties. She will always be my best friend.

Interesting question to ask someone you REALLY want to know.
New answer– overwhelming happiness. I literally can’t remember the last time I cried because of sadness (and I’m no hardass) but when I feel intensely joyful I start tearing up. A wedding recently had me bawling my eyes out…love is fucking emotional release. I think maybe tears of joy are a sign of suppressed unhappiness only realized when the polar opposite is consciously felt.

Leaving for college 3 hours away, and my girlfriend staying here.

We met about 6 months ago and have had the time of our lives ever since. We never argue, we can do anything together, or nothing, and still have fun. She is my first love, my first skydiving partner, my first “time”, my pyschedelic partner, my best friends’s friend, and god do we share the same values.

I would never give up the time we had together, but damn is move in weekend going to be tough for me. I’ve already cried twice and I haven’t even left yet.

@alexmayle, 3 hours isn’t too bad. I had a long distance relationship that was 3 hours apart and we still saw each other at least once, and usually twice, a week. It will be interesting to have new things to tell each other, and you will both grow and develop in new ways that will just add more interesting dynamics to the relationship.

@alexmayle, @tangledupinplaid21, You both really fucking suck to be honest. I have someone literally on the other side of the world and I’m motivated to think I can accomplish a lot.

Stupid fucking whiners.

Much love. :D

Calm down @beyond

Watching people genuinely struggle always choked me up. E.g. long distance running.

Weird one I know. But it’s desperation and persistence in its rawest form, and there’s something so admirable in that, it always gets me!
