What do you think about crying in public?


There is no question that most of us have already cried in public. Even if the last time was when we were kids. How do you fell when you lose it? What do you think when you see someone breaking down? Do you look the other way? Do you make any attempt to find out what it is and maybe comfort a person? Does it matter if it is a woman or a man? (I have seen men crying, but not hysterically).

    Then do you judge them or sympathize with them?

    I do agree, but that is the assumption that the one who cries does not want the attention to be brought to him or her because it makes it more embarrassing. But to the person who cannot hold tears, it feels that nobody cares at all.

    Martie, yes, I agree, if I had a choice, public display of emotion is not for me. But when is happened and all turn away, I find it ridiculous. I might write a hub, but I am trying to stick to my sequence. Maybe someone else would.

    It's a beautiful answer, tsmog - I am trying to abstain from comments, though, because there is a limit of comments posted and the question is deleted due to the Forum-y nature of it. Thanks!

    I agree there is no shame. This weakness is temporary and who knows if you are not the next one?

    I broke down in public more than once, and, no, I could not control, but the worst thing was that when nobody cared. There are usually a few people who come up and I am always grateful. It feels better.
