Everything That Makes Me Cry

I’ve always been a crybaby. When I was a kid I would cry if someone didn’t like my hair. I’m a little tougher now and I can handle a lot more that people throw at me. At the same time, the littlest and most random things are making me bawl like a baby. It’s not always things you would expect. Here are some things that get the waterworks going:

Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars

Everytime this comes on the radio, which is pretty often, it’s uncontrollable. This sucks because I love this song.

This video is the end of Six Feet Under and everytime I watch it I cry so hard that I can barely breath. I was once explaining to someone how much I love the end of this show and started to cry, right there in public.

Oh Father – Madonna

I heard this song one day in college when I was dealing with my grandmother who was saying horrible things about her own son. When this song came on I started to cry and to this day these specific lines get me all choked up.

Maybe someday
When I look back I’ll be able to say
You didn’t mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t know what it is but everything I watch makes me cry. Hell, I’ve teared up twice watching Glee already. I don’t know if it’s an age thing or a hormonal imbalance, I tend to think it’s more the latter. Either way it sucks having so little control over your emotions.

    I cried the first time at the SFU finale, but I’m good now. I rarely cry at something twice.

      Thanks, apparently something is wrong with me.

    I haven’t seen any of Six Feet Under, but I’ve seen that video before and it’s sad and completely awesome.

    I own the entire series on DVD – I should watch is sometime.

      Yeah, you should really see it.

    Dude, I cried thru the entire final season of SFU and the final episode… Sweet Kevin… (Little known fact: I’m a movie crier. I inherited it from my mother.)

      I love that about you, all tough on the outside but squishy on the inside.

    Oh and there’s nothing wrong with you. I’ve only watched the M*A*S*H* finale three times because I cry so hard I give myself a headache. (same with What Dreams May Come.)

      Still haven’t seen What Dreams May Come.

        I dunno why it gets to me so bad.
