One of my pet peeves is the misconception of crying as a sign of weakness. Hey, crying is good for you! It gets alot of emotional garbage out of your system. I've been under alot of stress due to my mother's health issue, and just now I had a good cry. I'm not saying substitute crying for talking things out or whatever--oh, no, you've got to talk. But please, don't make the mistake of thinking that crying is a sign of weakness. It's a sign of strength, of confronting feelings that are making you angry, or sad, or something else you'd rather not be. Hell, Bono cried when he saw Nelson Mandela's cell in South Africa when he was there for the 46664 show. Anyway, I feel much better after my good cry!
I'm a big cry baby. I cry when I'm extremely happy, when I'm sad, when I'm proud of somebody....etc.

I cried when the boys got inducted into the Hall of Fame.

I'll probably cry when I go see them in a couple weeks.

I'm a freak. :|
"Boys don't cry"....

But men do.
A real man faces his emotions, regardless of pain....
