Question I want to cry, but I can't cry

It really bothers me... You know when you see people cry a lot? Sometimes I feel sad like that, but my problem is... I can't cry. Usually the best I can is shed 1 small tear... I feel sad like when people cry, but I can't do that myself. For me it's not good because it might look that I'm strong enough to handle the emotion, which would normally be good, but for me it isn't, because the bad feelings build up inside of me, and I can't let them out, nor can I communicate those emotions. (If I cried, it would make me feel better and it would communicate that I'm sad to others) I can't express sadness right. Is there anything I can do or any explanation for this? Thanks for reading.


Darker days seem to be, what will always live in me, but still I run
It's hard to walk this path alone, I don't know which way to go
Will I ever save this day, will it ever change?

Yeah, it's happening to me like, every day that I feel sad for a few months at least now.

I have never heard of this before. I always can cry when sad or hurt. Maybe it's something to ask your doctor about.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

I'm sorry, I don't have any advice for how to change it. I've experienced it too, I think everyone does, just not as often as you are.

I think people react to emotions differently. Some people cry easy, some not at all. Does t mean anything other than you display those emotions differently.
Personally, I think crying is good, and healthy, it helps to release the energy your holding in and can't release it some other way.

Now for you that might be Sheri g a year, and that's all you need. I'd maybe think about what's making you sad, and why...

I usually cry far to easy no matter if I'm sad or angry. So I have more or less the opposite problem. I'm seen as weak and girly for crying quite a lot.
So unfortunately I have no advice for you.

I know what's making me sad most of the times, and I also know that crying is healthy, that's why I want to cry but I can't, and like I said, it builds in the bad emotions inside and it's terrible I can't let them out...

Maybe crying isn't how your body is made to let out those feelings. It's confusing as fuck I know, but maybe there's a different way to let them out like maybe drawing, writing, running or something productive you enjoy doing

Thanks, I'll try, it's just that I usually don't know how to, since it's difficult, but I'll try

I haven't been able to cry for years. I did once last year while really drunk but other than that its been maybe six years. It's frustrating because sometimes you think that maybe a good cry would just help haha. I don't really have any advice but I can relate.


life isn't that hard.

Being unable to cry can be a symptom of severe clinical depression. Don't panic, that doesn't necessarily mean that you have it, but maybe it's something to consider.

Other than that, maybe this can help:

Well, I know that I most likely have depression, I just didn't know that it might be that bad. But thank you, I'll watch the video!
