    Thank you, E.P., for answering this question. It is amazingly precognitive or highly coincidental that your brother wrote those lyrics just before his death. I am glad he did, for it must give you comfort and peace. Drunk drivers--so selfish; shame.

    Ah, I know just what you mean. I do the same thing if I'm actually very sad but someone hugs me or says something nice, then I might just lose it. For example, getting a hug at a funeral or sometimes a wedding will do it for me.

    PaoloJpm, thanks for answering. I love the way you phrased your answer, "when my smile can't handle the emotion within". That really resonates with me, and probably others who've answered this question, too.

    You are absolutely correct, about laughter. I'm not sure they balance in all people, but I understand what you're saying.

    You mostly cry about work? Wow! I'll hire you any day! You've got work ethics that work overtime! haha

    I agree 100% with what you've said! We're two of a kind. It just annoys me to no end when I cry; except sometimes I don't mind crying if I'm reading a sappy part of a book in private.

    I love the way you phrased your answer, the cadence of the words... It's almost like a poem. Do you also write poetry? If not, you should give it a try!

    I agree, too, that tears can help you get through "something" (for me, something good or bad).

    "The persistant presence of yesterday"... Wow, that's a powerful phrase. I love it! I'm quoting you and putting you up on my wall.

    I think your last paragraph pretty much nails most aspects of tears, especially.

    Sounds like reasonable reasons for crying, sdelandtsheer! I'm so glad to hear you don't often feel miserable lately, too.

    Only when you are alone, JT, or because you are alone? Curious.

    Indeed, everybody cries, sometimes. I cry when I am sad, lonely, frustrated/angry, sentimental (weddings), happy... I guess I cry a lot, but it's my emotional outlet and then I'm fine.

    It is, indeed, a vicious cycle--one that many suffer from: you are in good company, it is not "odd" at all. I, too, cry when I am angry like this.

    Pamdora, I'm so sorry about your sister! I can certainly imagine that you have a tough time of it this time of the year. Don't judge yourself for your feelings being "hurt way too easily"--you're just an emotional, caring being! That's good!

    If this troubles you to tears, perhaps an anger management class is advised.

    Your comment is not a full sentence. And, your question, "Why do people equate IQ with inteligence?" is no less absurd (2 Ls in intelligence; IQ = "Intelligence Quotient").
