    When was the last time you cried and why?

    Ever curious about others feelings, I am and I wonder if people get as sad as I do. I am a man, so I am not supposed to show my feelings, so they stay bottled up physically for too long.

    Guess for a guy, it's something too personal to share. What do you think? smile

    I cried the day my grandson was born, I was in the room with my daughter and was so happy for her I couldn't hold back the tears. It was probably the first time I had cried since see was born 24 years ago, strange how men can stay so bottled up.

    The last time I cried because of pain was last week when I burn my hand with boiling soup...got nasty burns .

    The last time I cried for nothing but emotion ,was listning to my favourite CD...its a special one recorded especially for me with some lovely songs on which stir up such lovely memories of some wonderful moments ....


    And the very last time I cried was today when I was going  through  what I   am  reading in chapel at my sons wedding in three weeks time  I hope i dont cry on the day !!

    You are a man, but you are also human, so I think that you shouldn't bottle up your feelings and emotions.
    The last time I cried was on Friday when I was told that my aunt whom I am very close to got some shock news that she has lung cancer. Before that, it was after watching the movie "An affair to remember" - the rest of the family laughed at me, but I'm a sucker for a weepie film.

    I wish I had something witty to say to lighten the mood, but two weeks ago when I cut the ends off two of my fingers on a mandolin slicer while canning jam. To make matters worse, I was slicing lemons! Ouch!

    Simplified version, twenty years ago, my father died. So a couple of days ago when we were with family and friends, I thought to myself, my dad would have loved this, my eyes filled with tears. Played it off a bit, saying something was in my eye.

    I am trying to remember..............grew up being told that only "sissies" cried...........


    shed tears of joy as my child went to colllege.....ok, maybe some of loss also...........


    when a good dog died, a few tears escaped............

    Not one for crying.   Never have been............never, ever, in no circumstance cry at work.............


    Really..............the truth is, I do not remember..............my daughter went off to college 10 years ago.........she has graduated and gone on to post grad.....................have moved several times since..............have been angry with hubby...........have had bad days at work...........disappointments small and large............have CHOKED a few tears and moments back, giving them no voice...........

    cried?.........................do not know.............WHAT does it say about me?


    I can tell you with all assurance.............you can have great sadness without tears.  ( we might have health realted issues as well.........)

    Last time that I did it was when my parents passed away. It was so sad that tears kept flowing.

    Sometimes I wonder if there is such a thing as everlasting life.

    Now, I keep myself in positive side of life and smiling every day together with my wife.

    Yes, it is never good to keep your feeling of sadness in yourself. Let go and have a good cry as you will definitely feel much better thereafter.
