    I sure am. I used to never cry in front of anyone. But I guess the older I get (I'm not so old yet.), I'm finding I'll cry at any old thing. And I'll cry over any old emotion, happy or sad. AND I LIKE IT!

    Yesterday, I went to the card store and ended up crying while reading all the cards. An adolescent girl happened to walk down that isle and gave me a strange look. In my earlier days, it would have embarrassed me. But yesterday it struck me as really funny, which just made me cry even more.

    I cry over all the little things now. I used to feel like I had to be stoic and maintain face but now I know that crying isn't a sign of weakness, it is human.

    I do cry over sad things and tear jerker movies but mostly I cry when I am extremely mad. My family knows if they made me cry they better watch out.

    I cry when they play the Star Spangled Banner and there are people in uniforms around...guaranteed to see me with Kleenex and sobbing...tearing up now just thinking of it.

    "Remember the Titans"....I know which scenes to leave the room for or I'm boo hooing every single time...now I see my DH tears up too.

    Movies -- funny or sad, tales and stories, hearing my kids on the phone say they love us (youngest is 26)and other simple things seem to mean so much more to me now than they did a few years ago.

    I try to get away and just say my eyes are leaking but who am I kidding? I am now considered a crier and that's okay with me.

    Has nothing to do with hormones, mayb you might cry a little more if your hormones are imbalanced. Crying is a normal part of life, if you don't cry then something is wrong. Tears are pearls from the heart. Someone once told me that and I will never forget it!!

    Crying is good for the soul! Who doesn't feel better after a good cry and a short nap?

    I am a crier for sure! Happy, sad....angry. It is a good cleanse..sometimes you just need a good cry to get it all out! No issues with anyone seeing me cry what-so-ever!

    Not so much, I am a very calm person, but I have softened up a lot with age, I think I smile more. My husband is the crier...he is very up front with his emotions...happy, sad, angry all done at volume with lots of arm waving. Tough, sturdy Sicilian who has a big heart:)

    My dad was a crier. It always killed me to see him cry. Not that I thought he was weak, just that he was that much of a softie and something must have touched him tremendously. . .

    Very rarely do I cry. Actually, I can count on one hand the times I have cried since I escaped puberty! I'm more of the bottle it up til you can't take anymore type (really bad for you I know). Wish I could be a bit more of a crier not only is it healthier, it seems to help people stay happier and more relaxed.

    One movie that I just love, love, love and cry every time I watch it is "When a Man Loves a Woman". Meg Ryan and the handsome husband (can't think if his name). I must have watched it a dozen times and I sob!!!!!!

    It is very healthy to cry and I am not embarassed by it at all. And I taught my sons, it is just fine to cry. Some parents say, "your a boy and boys don't cry". That is just wrong!!!! They are human too!!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I cry at movies, parades, or when I see someone upset in real life or on TV (like news), among other things. Also the last scene in the opera, "La Boheme", where Mimi has just died. Just hearing the music, I burst into tears.
    I guess I would be no good in a medical profession, I tend to relate too much to others' pain.

    I'm a quandry of emotions ALL THE TIME. News items that insense my ethical side, touching movies and commercials and children's precious stories, oh yes, memories. My ex husband would say, "oh gosh someone popped a knuckle...there she goes!" But, I'm a very caring person and I hope never to be dry eyed and sombre to the human need around me. I just could not be hard hearted. My crying is an ugly site, so look away, it's flowing freely.

    from a happy hearted soul !!!
