I don't cry very often, but I have cried in front of the kids. I don't see anything wrong with showing emotions in front of the kids, whether it be sad or happy emotions. My mom was mentally ill and at times cried every day. now, that was very confusing and depressing for me.
I don't cry often either - although I do suffer from manic depression
But films make me cry and I have also cried out of sadness, I don't like to cry in front of ANYBODY, having said that I do think it's ok for kids to see other people's emotions, and even good for them and my own kids have seen me cry before.
I am a crier for sure. I such an emotional person period, that anytime ther is a situation that may cause me to become emotional at all, everyone looks to see if I am crying. I do not cry too ofter as a result of sadness however, but more over sentimental things. I should be the moderator of the Town Crier. Believe it or not I cry alot over the posts here in the village forums. Your sadnesses and celebrations are mine too. :weeping: :weeping: :weeping:
OK, Robin and I are not twins but come from a long proud line of criers...... I never used to cry (Except as a child) about pain, I often do now) that I can not explain to my family..... I cry everytime I watch Disney films with the kids and they say "Mom, you are such a sap" ........ Like Robin, the posts here touch me so that I so often cry like a baby (both sad and joyful tears) .......
I don't have a lot of sadness in my life so I'm blessed there.... The tears are healing for me........ I wish men could cry the same way, they be the better off for it !!!!!!!!:weeping: :weeping: :weeping: :weeping:
I cry easily as of late. I think it's a combo of my age & life. I think this past year when my sis committed suicide & being that my kids are old enough to to see what's what, I couldn't hide what was going on with my emotions. As a result,we had many talks about many things. They were hard talks to have in some respects but my kids learned that life happens and you feel it~good & bad. Glad we have each other to hold on to if we need to.
Besides the big stuff I cry at anything that can touch your heart. I am more sensitive being over 40... Or maybe I realize just how wonderful life is and don't takeit for granted like I used to in my "youth". Glad to be alive
I find that I cry more often over small things as I get older. Usually they are just sentimental things but sometimes over deeper emotionally disturbing things whether it affects me directly or not. I also sometimes cry over posts.......
I don't like to cry in front of anyone. I don't know know why, I have always been like that. It just makes me really uncomfortable to cry in front of anyone. If I need to cry I go take a shower and do my crying in there.
I wear my emotions on my sleeve and I do cry in front of my kids. I too cry at some of the posts here, at parades, movie, etc.. My husband also sheds a tear or 2 at some movies and that is one of the things that I love most about him. He also cried tears of joy the day the kids were born.:angel:
Oh my, Robin I could have written your post!! Yes I am a crier and I do cry in front of the kids. There are happy cries, sad cries, emotional cries etc. I try to save my sad cries for private though!
We had a series of Bell (telephone) commercials running here last Christmas and my goodness, they were maybe a minute long and each one had me crying like crazy, the kids couldn't wait for them to come on.
Oh and my brothers still tease me......I still cry at Frosty the Snowman!! It's just so sad when he melts. While we were watching Frosty a few Christmas' ago Delaney was getting sad because he was melting and in my tears I am trying to tell her it's OK, he comes back to life again. Then why are your crying Mommy? Nothing like confusing a child.
