Todays' question might be a hard one. If it makes you too sad or uncomfortable to answer, then take a pass for today.

What makes you cry?

For me it's thinking of my son who's gone. It's been over 8 years and all I have to do it think of him or find a small reminder and I can burst into tears and/or sob for hours on end. I know it's silly after all of these years but it's how I'm wired.

Also, any time I am discussing something intense or emotional my eyes leak. It's very embarassing and frustrating at time. I remember when I was very young that mom accused me of crying just to get my own way. I was fighting so hard NOT to cry but she never did believe me.

I also cry when I see something wonderfully sweet. I was talking about how attached my hubby is to our grandson Thomas and my eyes welled up with tears. I had to excuse myself to the ladies room so not to make a fool of myself.

Happy or sad, I seem to leak easily... cry ...lol

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

cry  All the normal things make me cry but I cry when I see an old couple walking hand in hand through the park. Children playing joyfully and happily. Some TV commercials make me cry and I've also been known to cry during the Brady Bunch! I'm a weeper. Seeing someone I love ill or someone I don't know, it doesn't matter. A beautiful photograph or painting, a line of prose, poverty and strife or a beautiful rose. Thoughts of people whom have passed from my life and the eyes of the man who makes me happy to be alive. A perfect baby all precious and pink and a baby not so well suffering to live. It's funny how some of the things that make us the happiest can also bring a tear to our eyes. But knowing that all of you, my friends that suffer day in and day out well that will bring the tears out.
This was a good one Chutz, kind of took my mind of my own pain and sadness believe it or not.
 
Everyone should have a good cry occasionally, it does wonders for us. A lot like a summer storm.

I agree toritoo! But I'm usually a 'closet crier'. I often use the trick that Eleanor Roosevelt used. On rare occasion when she cried she would go to the bathroom, turn on the water and hard and loud as possible and cry away. It hopefully would drown out the sound of her sorrow. She did this once when one of her young children died. Maybe one day I'll be more open about it or not let it bother me but for now I guess I'll keep a tissue in my pocket and keep the water running...lol
