What makes you cry? I don’t know about you but as for myself I mostly cry over silly things. I cry over several movies, TV series, books and even someone else’s drama in life. I can’t stop it, I can’t help it. It amazes me how easily my tears welled up for these kinds of things. It mortifies me most of the time especially when there’s people around. I could let my tears fall down uncontrollably in the sanctuary of my own room, but please not in public places! How I struggled to hide and control those teardrops when it unceremoniously fell down while watching a movie together with friends or reading a book in an open places. It’s humiliating, but I learn the trick of acknowledging it when there are people around because it’s even more embarrassing if they caught you trying to hide it hahaha you get what I mean? But the irony of it all is the realization that I barely cry for myself, for my own troubles and complains in life. Save for the time when my mother died (I cried so hard to the point of hyperventilation), and when my dog got hit by a speeding van, I couldn’t bring myself to cry for myself! (kinda confusing huh?) Most people cry when they face trials and difficulties they think they can’t handle, but I’m an exemption. Though there are those times I felt like crying but these tears just won’t drop! It’s ridiculously true. It’s just not me to shed tears over my own setbacks. Self pity, solitude, desperation, hopelessness, anxiety, disappointment, misfortune can bring me down but can hardly bring tears to my eyes. Yet, when I feel these emotions from a character in a movie or book, these tears are just shameless! I begin to wonder if this is because of some chemical activity in the brain or just simply a psychological issue in my part? hahaha. Its kinda weird really :).
