Resynchronizing with RealitySorry, You're Not a Winner
18th April 2006
I must admit, i cried the other day because my hampster died unexpectedly, plus it had been a really bad day, so all that put my emotions into overdrive. It was the worst day in ages. :(
But i dont usually cry and before the other day i hadnt cried for a very long time.
i dont remember crying for two years now, it was when my parents who were getting divorced sold the house i grew up in. pretty depressing...
but no need to be ashamed...it happens.
Sometimes I want to cry, but just can't bring myself to do it. Suck, huh?
- on the 31st because I was drunk and a friend did me a favour
- when Tom Hanks lost Wilson in Cast Away and... well, basically every Tom Hanks movie
- when I truly realized who was there to help me in time of need
- when I get shampoo in my eyes
Not often, but the last time I cried was probably when my two cats died. They were older than me... knew them my whole life, y'know? And yeah, also when wilson the ball drifted away in Castaway. The weird thing is one of my cats was called Wilson... kinda poetic.
I cried a couple of days ago, because a television show reminded me of a sick family member. And I cried about a month ago from stress, when I got a new job.
The only time. I have ever cried was at the funeral of my grandmother and grandfather(seperate occasions)
Last time I remember crying was several years ago when I dumped a girlfriend who I was nuts about but was only using me for sex. Yeah sounds silly now but I really thought she might be the one.
Since then I think I have gone to polar opposite and have buried my emotions so deep that I feel I have little reaction to anything unless Im around people who know me well.
You know back in the day of oh the 1700's and 1800's maybe even 19 you were considered a true man if you could cry in front of others. You were seen as a shameless man. Who could express how he feelt in front of others and accept the challenges openly before him. It showed that he hurt in life and wasnt oblivious or un realistic about it. A man of emotion, compassion and rationall thought.
Now a days in my opinion only emo freaks never want to cry...never want to vent but just want to hold everything in until they are completely in a daise of hurt and confussion. A real man should cry if he has to wether it is in private or wether it is in public.
Because of the above and because of many more things ...women were alot more awesome back then than they are now.:nodding: They werent shallow and relationships were realisitc and there were very very very few divorces then.....That's why women were so much better then.
Crying though can be a shameless act if you are willing to accept the feelings provoking the crying and understand them as you do so.In turn work beyond them as the crying makes it easier. In this case there is no shame for a man to cry .
i cry when something sad happens like i think last Sunday i cried because i was watching 24. but i shed tears when I'm pissed off that's more the case.
