I am not talking about tearing up during a really sad movie, or getting so angry your eyes start watering (I am afraid my anger is usually directly connected to my tear ducks). I am talking about one of those deep, moving, heart wrenching cries (like how Dane Cook describes in this clip) that happens when you need to release emotion. Life starts to build up, someone said something mean, you have to say good-bye… these type of sob moments are usually more related to women, since we live life by our emotions. But men, you cry too, and you know it.
If I am lucky I get one of these cry sessions about every six months, and I wish with all my heart it was more often. I know women who get to cry like this once a week.What is the key to unlocking my emotions? I think I may have a clue, but I am not ready to share it with the world yet.
For a happy cry check out this story about Christian the Lion, I teared up the first five (or ten) times I watched this.
