I'm a crybaby. I cry in the movies, I cry in concerts, I even cry if I'm upset in public. Do you feel embarrassed if crying in public or is it just natural in some situations? I feel like people stare a lot, so it's embarrassing, even though I shouldn't care what other people think of me.

I find it really hard to cry, not because I think I shouldn't as a man is not supposed to cry just because I can't.
but if its my partner who is emotional , I find it really adorable
I do look at people who cry, not stare, because I have a default reflex to know what's been bothering them or if there is anything that I am in a capacity to do to help them

I don't think it is humiliating and I don't see it as a weakness, just someone showing their feelings.
But the majority of times we are taught that "crying is something little girls do" and "being a little girl" is bad somehow. "Showing emotions is being emotional", and when you are emotional "you are immature or stupid".
I try to be kind with those who are feeling sad and I laugh and comfort them when it is about something "irrelevant" (like a movie or a video).
I understand that for some it's easier to reveal their feelings, in my case, crying is private, it is difficult for me to show it to others, but I have always repressed myself in those aspects.0
