    Does crying make you uncomfortable?

    Crying makes me uncomfortable because I go bright red and my eyes go all puffy, not like people in films who shed elegant tears. But seeing other people cry, even grown men, doesn't make me uncomfortable, it's a natural thing. How do you feel about it?

    Not at all.  It's like you said, it's natural.  I believe men may have an issue with is simply because they were brought up not to show emotion or risk emasculation.  But for women, I believe it's also hormonal, so we really can't help it a lot of the times.  It's a physical reaction and we shouldn't be judged one way or the other for doing it.  It's like sneezing. Can't help it sometimes.

      It's weird that I don't judge anyone else for crying, yet don't like it myself. It makes me physically uncomfortable, but the release of emotion is a good thing. Thanks for your comment.

    Crying may be cleansing for the eyes and eye ducts, as well as the soul. But every one is not the same and this may not be the best thing for every one.

    No, it does not.

    I believe that sometimes, one needs to have a good cry to release one's sadness as keeping inside will do more harm than good. So, when someone is crying, I will comfort the person and saying that it is good to give yourself a good cry and letting it out. Most of the time, after a good cry, it helps the person to recover.

    Surely.If i see some one crying it makes me uncomfortable.  Usually i try to console them if they are nearby.Without reason nobody will cry .Anyway drops of tears will  come with my eyes also. It may be because of my feminine nature .

    I don't like to cry in front of others and I don't like it when others cry in front of me, except if I'm very intimate with that person. But apart from that, crying makes me feel quite relieved, so if I feel like it, I just go for it - in my alone time, of course.

      Thanks, algarveview, the alone time bit makes sense to me.
