    I'm not very emotional. In fact, if anything, I'm the opposite.

    It's something my therapist pointed out to me and I know she's right. I have a very strong tendency to overintellecualize things. Something happens or something that happened, I can be open and matter of fact about it. But all I'll talk is facts, what I observed, or the consequences of actions. Never what I feel.

    In my defense, I smoke a lot of cigarettes. Like... a lot. So my heart isn't able to feel anything, it's too busy being a ball of smoldering ash.

    But there are those rare occasions I break down crying. Very rare. What's odd is I used to cry all the time. I had something to cry about. I suppose I still do. But the older I got, the less it happened. Now the only time I cry is when I go to /b/ and check out a baww thread designed for the specific purposes of getting someone to cry. Most guys cry about break ups or lost loves, which is understandable but not my thing. I cry about broken families and dying soldiers. And suicide. And heroes. And when people care. When people care is the worst because it's fiction.

    So...

    Those used to make me cry. But, y'know it's like, and maybe I'm overintellectualizing it but...

    This man gets up on stage at a comedy club. He tells a joke. Doesn't matter what it is, it was funny and everyone laughs. So he pauses... then tells it a second time. Everyone laughs again. When he tells it a third time, less people laugh. The fourth time, only a few chuckles. The fifth time nobody laughed.

    The man smiled. He said, "If you can't laugh at the same thing over and over, how is it you cry about the same thing over and over?"

    I'm not keen on anything that could be classified as "overly emotional", however couldn't imagine being numb'd out to the point where I'd say giving up is an

    And honestly, crying does nothing...it sets you to mope around in cycles, which would be time better spent doing something that makes you happy..

    every day you spend letting this into your head is another day you spend letting the person/people that sent you there win.

    No it doesn't.

    No it isn't.

    Why are you humans even here? Did I ask for your heterosexual cisgendered upper middle class white male opinions?

    I know you're trying to insult me by implying I'm a tweaker, good luck with that.

    I have experience with meth addicts in my life, far from being emotionally numb, they are an emotionally turbulent people.

    hmm being a meth addict will do this to you, I dont know about all the other people in the world but i became very emotionally unattached to anything except my daughter when I detoxed.... and also when I was high, I never felt sad or angry...

    quite an emotional array of pics lol

    Not many things are worth crying over.

    You miss it, yet don't care enough to actually bother with it.

    Idk..

    No. Sex would be a stress relief, helpful, etc.

    What on earth does crying do? I always say that tough times don't last, but tough people do.

    Crying is a natural thing tho and is a good way to relief stress and tension. I sense when you say cry you mean overly emotional crying or crying just because someone hurt your feelings. am i right?

    There was a time when my body forced me to cry. My whole body went numb and tears came out likely from holding things in.

    Of course it's natural, and yes - was aiming for the crocodile type of crying/feeling sorry for oneself, or crying over someone who'd be so not worth it.

    I'm guessing one of those "so mad you can cry" moments?
