I am fairly controlled in crying in front of people as I know it makes many people uncomfortable and do not want to do this.
I did have problems however when two of my children died at for a long time then I would burst out crying with no warning -I would normally take myself out of a social situation when this happened as it gets worse for me when someone then comes and hugs me which people seem to do -I then totally lose control.
Nowadays I can control my grief and tears as am home alone a lot, and yes, it does still happen to me, just not as strong or uncontrolled.
I have no dramas with crying spontaneously in front of others if there is a genuine reason. I no longer cry at movies though!!! I have to have a very real reason to cry,and I am not at all ashamed of crying if I feel strongly about something. In fact the news will often have me in tears with all the truly shocking things which seem to be occurring,and I will often simply turn it off now.I am known to be someone who likes to see the pleasant aspects to life and to share smiles wherever possible,so when I cry there is a truly good and genuine reason for it, whether I am alone or with someone.
Yes. I did this morning at work. I received terrible news yesterday and was very upset, leaving work early. This morning when I got in to work our receptionist greeted me and asked how I was. I immediately broke down in tears. She quickly cheered me up before entering the office and understood how I was feeling. Sometimes you just can't control your emotions. We're only human.
Oh yes, all the time. If it makes other people uncomfortable then that's their problem not mine. I think we are all far too emotionally repressed and a bit of honesty is good for all of us. I am bringing up my son to be as emotionally literate as I can, rather than trying to bottle up his feelings and cause who knows what issues, just to protect other people.
Crying, anger, happiness, all part of the human condition.
I have struggled to hold back tears at funerals, but for the most part I have managed. As far as crying at work, my motto is never let them see you shed a tear. This is how I was brought up by family raised from Aussie bush stock. I don't internalise grief, but for me crying is a private matter.
Yes though try not to in front of people, tears may well up but I can stop them by changing the subject.
In movies, sad songs, sad memories etc..I can cry at the drop of a hat.
Am actually very emotional which surprises people.
I cry fairly easily. However, this was very unexpected. I was in a really great interview for a management position. Everything was great, until the last question - "Can you tell us why you left your last job" - I burst into tears trying to explain that for 12 months in a similar management job I had to work with no office, no designated chair, no designated desk, unable to find my paperwork which various people had move, and no computer access. Until then, I had realised how much impact this had had on me.
Read my poem on tears - on Poetry.
LOL - I cried today at the shop. Not intentionally though; the tears just started rolling. I took my son to see Jimmy Giggle and Hoot the owl from the ABC. The look on his face when he recognised Jimmy was priceless.
