This depends on the situation. If you cry over something trivial, like losing a sports match, maybe they will see you as immature.But if you cry over someone dying or death over a loved one, being in chronic pain, over a sad/emotional scene, it's perfectly acceptable
Or its because we understand and hold our own philosophies. Not everyone is indoctrinated.
So.. you think people who cry are weak? Cool, hope you stub your toe.
I do stub my toe sometimes and i dont cry or make loud noises. Sometimes i dont make a noise at all. I just think "i was dumb for not paying attention." And i will always move onwards with life. Control yourself and use your wings to fly higher into the lovely blue sky, or suffer like a duck in the ocean of uncontrollable emotions.
Ok. I was wishing a mild inconvenience upon you but you wrote a paragraph back talking about how you wouldn't cry from it?Like, wow, so tough, your at least as strong as an 8 year old now, yay! :D
Your reply was much deeper indicating a lot about how weak you are. Constantly juding others for disagreeing with your opinion makes you the perfect simp for a woman. Did you have a father?
Lol, yes I do. Ah but such a bad dad, he didn't tell me to bury my emotions and always pretend to be tough, tsk tsk. That's what you were probably gonna say next right? Something along those lines?
I said control your emotions. Imagine i said you need to steer your car, instead of letting it go wherever it happens to go. Then you tell me i said to take it to the junkyard. Dumb or?
My bad, don't bury them, control them.. which still somehow equates to crying being bad in your mind.
Kay, you're the one who came in arguing against me, who said it isn't weak to cry, which means you do think it's weak to cry.. then nitpicked.
Crying is weakness. I never ever will say otherwise.
I get confused often for macho type maybe more so because I work out a lot. But my idea of a strong person is not unemotional, robotic. It's someone who laughs a lot, smiles a lot, cries little, gets angry very rarely. It's someone with a cheerful and positive and humorous spirit. That is strong in my mind. And that type of person doesn't stress out so easily or find reasons to cry so often because their thinking patterns are very positive and productive.
And I think anger is an even greater and more destructive/dangerous weakness than crying like a baby:randysrandom.com/.../marcus-aurelius2.jpg
Crying is a healing process
so im guessing you never cried as a baby lmao stop tryna act like an "alpha" its a human emotion.
I get what you're saying. Still it is subjective. But you're basically saying it means the guy isn't insecure and who he is. I wouldn't use the word strength though.
Yeah more or less like that, I meant he isn't afraid to show his emotion
You're 45 years old and this unwise... The issue is not the emotion. But first of all it can be a strength because it does show one is secure in who they are enough to show such emotions. Now on to what I wanna really say. The issue is not the emotion, it is whether or not you have self discipline. Mastery over the emotions. The ability to voluntarily produce an emotion or rid through transmutation. One who cannot do that, which is most people, are emotionally weak (most people). If you cannot cry when it is okay and beneficial to cry that is also weak. Emotion can be exploited but it can also be beneficial. The ability to control it like a light switch is strength. It is the most important lesson you can ever learn because it is the start of self-discipline. @Jack9949 even this 19 year old is more wise than you lmao. Oh crap you're from chi-town? Nvm dude. I don't want no beef. You're right man nvm what i said.
100% agree with this, it's absolutely to cry within reason, but you shouldn't use it as a way to guilt trip and manipulate people, or act like a spoiled child who couldn't get the toy they wanted, that's just lame.
Lmao nice answer. All trolling aside the answer is neither.
Unless your tears are of joy and awe those are appropriate.
