I was wonderring how normal is crying over the littlest thing? I used to cry i'd say a normal amount (when something big emotionally or physically hurt me). About a 1.5 years ago though I had some counseling for a number of months, during it i was encouraged to cry to help talk about what was bothering me. Now although out of counseling, i cry over the smallest things, like if i hear something sad even when its a story unrelated to me/anyone i know, or i say something thats bothering me etc. Things which usually doesn't make me cry, now does. I cant controll it, i just have to cry. I'm sick of being so sensitive. Is there any way around it?

Hey! Crying is a completely normal way of getting out emotions, and although you may think that crying about the smallest problems is annoying, but just think if you kept all of that emotion inside. Are you going through an emotional period in your life? My bestfriend is having alot of problems with her exboyfriend and she cries all of the time about the littest things. For example, her purse fell over in class the other day and acouple things fell out and she started bawling. With this said, evauate your situation, could your crying be apripos to some other conditions? If this is the case figure out what the situation is and go talk to a counselor. I get really emotional and cry all the time around that time of the month, this may be another factor furthering your crying. If none of these are the case then just know that crying is sometimes the best way to express what your thinking, and sometimes we all have to sit down and cry for awhile. So don't worry about it, having some time to cry and express what your feeling is a healthy way of being upset that won't cause any bodily harm. As long as you don't feel down and depressed all of the time you are totally normal! Cheer up! Hannah
