I can only cry, if I am really upset.Then the tears come, so really for me it has to be genuine.
I'm not sure about others 'intentionally tearing up' to relieve anxiety,stress or hurt.
Tears normally come to most people
without being intentional.
Never intentionally no. I actually try my hardest not to cry, even when I'm really upset as I find it hard to control my emotions and once I start crying its hard to stop. For me crying doesn't help relieve, but makes me feel worse!
