When Is The Last Time You Cried?

I never believe straight guys who say they've only cried a few times in their life.

When is the last time you cried and why?

I balled my eyes out last night I was so sad.

I’m very, very gay and I’ve only cried a few times in my life, as a child.

I tear up all the time, having a sensitive nature. But I can’t remember the last time I cried.

January, 2020 after watching the movie 1985.

by Anonymousreply 9Last Wednesday at 4:00 PM

In January my father, mother, brother and I had a phone call with a specialist treating my mom. She’s had a series of TIAs (they think that’s what they are, but aren’t certain). He talked to my parents and I individually. It was a long conversation and we were all on edge. When I went to leave that evening my mother thanked me profusely for coming and participating. We were alone in the kitchen. I told her that she (and my dad) are the most important people in the world to me and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them. I started to cry before I could finish the sentence. I just turned and left. She won’t remember this because her memory is impaired now, but it’s a moment I won’t forget.

I will well up and tears will roll down my cheeks at the slightest of sad or touching movies, some songs and even a few touching commercials but that is different to me from a cry. I can't remember the last time I cried because I was upset or sad about something I don't think I have ever cried as an adult, I didn't cry at the deaths of either of my parents or my older brother from suicide, nor for any grandparents. People just aren't that important to me. Death is sad, it just doesn't bring me to tears.

Aww, R10, so sorry to hear. Sounds like you have good parents,

Whoa R13

I am a huge Leftovers fan but have never thought of it as sad or grief inducing. It's more a journey of discovery.

What scene made you cry?

by Anonymousreply 17Last Wednesday at 4:24 PM

I can't really cry for myself. I can cry in empathy for someone else or while watching a sad movie.

A few days I was able to get into an old Flickr account and found pictures of my dog who died at 14 in February when he was a puppy. I miss him so much. I cried.

i get weepy several times a month about losing my marriage but glad I do as it makes me know that i really loved him , even though he is batshit crazy now

In this instance, it was the season one finale. Kevin finding Jill in the fire. Tommy reunited with his mom. Nora finding the replicas of her departed husband and children, putting them in bed and kissing them goodbye. And then finally, the scene where Nora picks up the baby.

The first season isn’t a patch on the other two, but it has one of the best, most meaningful final lines ever: "Look what I found."

OP, I quit using Zoloft in 2017, after 18 years. One of the two remaining side effects of quitting is choking up for no reason. It's effing annoying. The other is a permanently runny nose. I'm glad I stopped taking it. My brain actually remains rewired. I was concerned I'd fall back into the unhealthy habits I had before I started taking it (200mg p).

I guess R21 -- I found all that mystical and a reminder of what was in their subconscious brought to the fore, wasn't sure if it was reality or dream.

But different people have different reactions to things so not saying your reaction is not valid. I will need to rewatch and consider someone finding it very sad.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Wednesday at 4:31 PM

R21 was meant for r17. Sorry!

I am one of those who rarely cries and was surprised, when I found DL, to realize that many posters were being literal when they said that something made them cry.

I was sad when my grandmother died a few years back, but she'd had dementia for several year and so it was like she'd been gone for a while already, she was in pain and she rarely recognized her own children let alone her grandchildren.

I sobbed when my mom and dad died several years ago. I tend to shove food in my mouth to stuff down my feelings, but there wasn’t enough ice cream in the world to fix that.

by Anonymousreply 26Last Wednesday at 4:36 PM

Oh, I don’t know that "sad" is necessarily the emotion I was experiencing with much of it, r23. Catharsis moves me to cry quite often.

That said, the stuff with Nora seeing the (fake) faces of the ones she lost was VERY moving; it flooded me with sadness. I just made me feel what it must be like to experience loss on that level.

We really need a good Leftovers thread. Didn’t mean to hijack this one.

As we're deeper into the anniversary of New York's COVID peak last spring, I'm finding a lot of my emotions very raw about it. One of the nurses and I were talking about it, and she reminded me of the time that the woman who overheads the code announcements broke down while she was announcing the umpteenth Code Blue one day. It took me a minute to compose myself after that memory came back.

January 18, 2021 when I had to put my cat down. I cried before I made the call to the vet and on the way there. I pulled myself together for one last chat and cuddle in the car before we went it. I held it together during the process and when he died and cried all the way home.

I lost two of my oldest, closest friends in the past year and didn’t feel nearly the same level of heartbreak. I hope grieving my cat’s death so intensely was in some way misplaced grief that I wasn’t able to express for my friends. On the other hand death in the time of COVID is surreal with no funerals, no real closure.

I used to be the type who would shed a tear or two at a movie or, when alone and thinking about how sad something was, would cry a bit. But about fifteen years ago I left my bf who had been. . .I dont want to say "abusive" but I let him screw me up mentally with his shitty treatment until one day, I left. I haven't cried since and I think about that every now and again. I dont think my inability to cry is because I'm happy or life is better. I think I'm afraid that if I start to cry, I won't ever stop.

Watching Rhoda the other day. It was Season 3, I think. Ida got a job distributing magazines and snacks at a hospital. Rhoda and Brenda were so demeaning to her. After Ida explained her desire to feel useful, I was angry-crying because of her ungrateful children. Sometimes, I want to smack the shit out of Rhoda.

I feel like crying at times...the lump is at the top of my throat, but I can't seem to have a good cry. I might squeeze out a tear or two, but a good sobbing is hard for me. Sometimes it takes a good, sad movie to bring me to tears.
