yeah its all good. but there is a limit to it. Too much just gives me the impression that you are whinny or needy, which are characteristics I don't really care for.


Same for people like you. People who judge others who cry a lot come off as really ignorant and not worth caring for. .A.

Depends on the way you cry.



Shedding some tears from an inability to control 'any said emotion' is fine, but If you moan like a dying goat when you cry, then please stop crying and suck up your tears in public. No one wants/needs to hear that ish.

Depending on the situation. When you're just alone or something, is it okay? (Other than a death).

I find myself always in a trance, or daydreaming. I'll listen to OST's or music that will make me cry. No to pry into anything personal, I have low self-esteem. I've been told I'm very light-hearted, so I guess that's a good thing.

Is it okay to cry?


Tf2pyros, crying is a mistress that you later find out is a mister, and no number of salt baths will ever rinse you of the shame.

Just as Ushio Okazaki said in Clannad: "The only places i can cry is in the bathroom and in daddy's arms."




Aw man I was totally going to post that. XD

Sure, It's okay to cry, crying is NOT a sign of weakness.

Crying is a outlet of emotion. It's a good thing.
Hiding emotions, not showing what you feel, will become a pile until it collapses.

It is part of our nature. Tears aren't only meant for sad times.

Everyone cries. Its just the people who see you doing it that might be the problem. If they don't immediately ask what's wrong or tell you to stop, then you should probably not be around them anymore.

I think its ok, we do it since we are babies because that's the only way to express ourselves when we cant communicate efficiently. I think that's also true when we are older. People who aren't good at verbally expressing their emotions often end up crying from sadness, stress, anger, or happiness.

I tend to bottle up my emotions, even though i know its bad, its easier that way for me. Specially if its in a public place or if arguing with someone i care for. Later on I usually turn to music for some therapy. I don't like crying either in public or in private.

I know everyone cries with stuff like Clannad and similar shows/movies. I actually didn't cry for that!!

Don't get me wrong, the feels were intense, its a lovely story. Definitely one of the few that brought me close to crying, It did made me choke up get watery eyes, but i don't consider that crying. Same with Little Busters, and few eps of Sket Dance, to name a few. I just don't seem to cry over something that is not real, no matter how moved I am by it, tears just don't come out.

But everyone is different, some people find relief in crying, if that's the case, then it is completely fine to cry. But there are times when it is important to be strong to be able to support someone else, then cry when by yourself. Or show compassion and sympathy by shedding tears with them. Its entirely based on the events.

this is like asking if it's okay to pee. of course it's okay, it's a normal bodily function.

Not if you're in my house.

No crying allowed.
Violators will be asked to leave with no assurance of being welcomed back in the future.

Crying is cathartic and sometimes needed.

How so?
Showing emotions seems to be rather easy and just crying if something is upsetting seems rather easy as well.

Now don't get me wrong if you feel like crying and that's your thing go for it.
It doesn't make you any less of a man in my eyes BUT
Saying it takes a bigger man to show emotions than it does to keep it cooped up is just stupid.
There are situations where you feel like crying but you just can not allow it you need to appear strong to give support to the weaker ones who can not hold it in and just need a strong shoulder to cry on.

Turning on the water sprinklers all the time is way easier than holding it in for the sake of others but i suppose not everyone can understand that and some just need to tell themselves that they are bigger man cause they just cried like a baby,,,,,,,

Crying makes you feel better well that's fine np with that but don't delude yourself


Lol, ok. I don't really know but the way I was brought up was that men don't show emotion like crying or being sad or anything like that, that it wasn't manly, so I tended to hold on to that view as I got older. Saying its stupid because you don't agree with it is awfully childish, but that's your opinion and I'll respect that.

Last week over the course of a couple days, my 13 year old dog went from running around the yard and loving long walks, to not even being able to stand up to go to his food and water or go outside to handle his business. I tried to pick him up to carry him outside and it made him scream in pain. For a minute there, I thought I was going to have to put him to sleep. I can't even imagine life without my best friend. But seeing him suffer was even more agonizing.

I'm not gonna lie, I cried like a little girl. Full on waterworks complete with sound effects. But honestly, I can't even remember the last time I cried before that. Has to have been at least a decade or more. I guess what I'm trying to say is: it's okay to cry over something or someone you feel strongly about. But there are some people who cry all the time, over everything. "WAHHHHH!!! You ate my bag of Cheetos!!!" Those people become known as "that person who cries all the time" You don't even feel sympathy for them anymore.

I think if you're crying everyday, you might have some sort of chemical imbalance. Otherwise, It's supposed to be a great way to release endorphins and what not. So let forth the flood gates if you so desire!
