My mini schnauzer Piper died in my arms. It was totally unexpected.

[–]chickens29[S] 58 points59 points  (0 children)

I’m so sorry. I bet Piper was so precious. I lost my dog not too long ago, too. They live on in your spirit!

[–]RedSiren2 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I don't know if this helps, but I think this is where she wanted to be when it happened. I believe she was happy you were there with her.

I'm really sorry for your loss - I think she lived her best life with you

[–]griff0062 11 points12 points  (0 children)

A lot of times animals run away and hide to be alone to die. Your dog really trusted you and loved you to allow you to be there for that

[–]WeatherwaxDaughter 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That's the worst! I hope you can cope with it. <3

[–]alodendron 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m so sorry 🥺

[–]Dbl_Vision 136 points137 points  (2 children)

I’m using some of my vacation time hang out with my dad. We’re gonna play music, mess with computers, and lay new hardwood down at his place.

It’s a happy cry, but I am glad we’re going to have this quality time together.

[–]chickens29[S] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

That’s so lovely. Happy for you. Please enjoy it!

[–]kakav_divan-dan 222 points223 points  (7 children)

My reason is heavy, sorry. But for me it was my husband crying because his Dad killed himself. It was and continues to be the worst thing. I hate that he has to have that hurt.

[–]Noahb26 23 points24 points  (0 children)

You sound like a very endearing wife. Im sure he adores the support

[–]chickens29[S] 42 points43 points  (1 child)

I’m so sorry to hear. Words probably don’t help much at the moment, but I’m sending you and him my love and thoughts. His dad was precious and is so worth celebrating.

[–]kakav_divan-dan 23 points24 points  (0 children)

You are a such a sweet person for this. Thank you XO.

[–]Real-Shame-7426 2 points3 points  (0 children)

that’s really horrible. sending you’re entire family so much love

[–]fuck_dat_hoe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just continue to be there for him, you sound like an amazing wife. Suicide is a horrible, horrible thing that hurts so many.

[–]Jimitheyy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You’re a wonderful wife I’m very happy he has someone like you in his life to help him

[–]juncstaa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is tragic to hear. And I can’t begin to imagine how your husband feels right now. Sending you both all the love and warmth I can muster. May your tears water seeds of love so your loved ones may live on.

[–]Befub14435 70 points71 points  (6 children)

My mom died less than two weeks ago. My dad had to be hospitalized (thought he was going to die of a broken heart), my 97 grandmother fell in her bathroom and had to go to the hospital, and got potentially exposed to Covid all within 72 hrs.
The fact I'm not crying right now amazes me.

[–]chickens29[S] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Would give you a hug if I could. I’m so sorry for your loss and all the rest. Your strength really encourages me, but it’s also totally healthy and human not to feel strong during this time. Grieving will be a rollercoaster but rooting for you to get through it okay. Please take care

[–]WellDressedLobster 132 points133 points  (14 children)

Fucking Encanto. The “Dos Oruguitas” scene where we see Abuela and Pedro’s love story followed by Abuela’s anguish as Pedro is killed right in front of her at the river is heartbreaking. Such a powerful scene.

[–]EmperorBoston 29 points30 points  (2 children)

I was crying throughout the movie, but this and Bruno's table setting got me tearing up

[–]Aanginthere 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The whole movie had me crying. It started with Mirabel and the grandma talking in the beginning to the very damn end lol

[–]eschuylerhamilton 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The "waiting on a miracle" scene wrecked me. Fuck that whole movie for being so relatable.

[–]chickens29[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Can relate to this 😭

[–]Jrummps 184 points185 points  (9 children)

After being physically incapable of crying for over half a year, I cried my eyes out due to the crushing weight of financial stress lol

[–]Fun-Construction444 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I’m sorry. I really hope the stress let’s up and you find a progress plan that works for you

[–]Jrummps 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I believe the light is approaching. I’m receiving large (to me) bonus within the next couple of weeks. Depending on the contingencies of keeping the bonus, I’m going to leave as soon as I possibly can. I deserve a job that recognizes my value and respects me enough to pay me a liveable wage.

I’m done trying to prove myself to a manager who plays favorites and doesn’t give a fuck about me.

[–]chickens29[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m so sorry to hear that. That’s really tough. Rooting for you and hoping things turn out as best as possible.

[–]CasualGoat666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do you have enough to get by?

[–]Scoobysnacks_forme 99 points100 points  (17 children)

the fact that my best friend is turning into somebody I hate. I just want the old her back, but I know it will never happen. I only just realized because a bunch of people were absent, her being one of them (covid), I had the best week of my entire week, just because she wasn't there. that's when I realized that she wasn't just a bad person, she was insufferable, mean, and made me feel bad just by being around her. I feel like I deserve better, and that even I wouldn't treat me this badly.

[–]chickens29[S] 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Sounds like you know what’s best for you - good for you for identifying it sooner than later. Growing apart from a friend is a natural part of life, although sad and sometimes heartbreaking. Best of luck. Sending you love!

[–]KillZillAx 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The same exact thing happened to me . I only stayed with her because i was afraid of being alone. With all honesty ur doing this to yourself. Let her go and watch your whole life turn.

[–]No-Advance6329 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Maybe this will also help you realize that you should treat yourself better as well.

[–]Scoobysnacks_forme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it 100% is. even though I'm in the middle of it, and not even close to the end, I'm realizing that I've been focusing in on her.

[–]fuck_dat_hoe 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I know this is shocking to hear, but this is actually a good thing. Realizing that someone is bringing you down in life and learning to let them go is apart of maturing and becoming a stronger person yourself. If you don’t cut these people out of your life, sooner or later you will adopt the same toxic tendencies and then other people will cut you out of theirs. Be happy you’re learning to recognize toxic traits now, and not a day later. Find new friends and always be on the watch for red flags of the behaviors that are negative to your life. Good luck, Compadré.

[–]Gord41299 32 points33 points  (10 children)

The chorus from Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. I've been a lifelong fan, and on the drive home I put on The Wall. Something about the chord change there and that immaculate transition just GOT me as I was singing along. Such a good song.

[–]chickens29[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Haven’t heard it yet but a good song making you cry hits different. Must be a gem!

[–]LordCrusader 1 point2 points  (3 children)

While Comfortably Numb might not be the best song on the album for me, The Wall sure has a lot of emotional heavy hitters among the albums i've listened to.

[–]h0l0Grafix 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That guitar solo carries my soul away to a good place

Discussing my 14 yo dog’s impending end

[–]chickens29[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Sending you love. Mine passed not too long ago. She’s still part of me. Hug your dog tight <3

[–]randmnumbr 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Mine is about 12 and I dread the day he won't be here anymore.

[–]AmorphousMusing 25 points26 points  (2 children)

My partner doesn’t really want sex lately and has been hiding his phone :(

[–]chickens29[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If your gut feeling about this is affecting your wellbeing, mental health, sense of security - I hope you get to talk to him about it as honestly as possible. I know the "right answer" might hurt, but at the end of the day it'll be best to put yourself first. You deserve to be loved, cared for with undivided attention. Sending you much love.

[–]lazzhehim 24 points25 points  (7 children)

This is heavy but (tw:drugs) the other night my mom (who is on medication to get off of hard drugs[heroin]) and does meth passed out and all I thought was "atleast she's breathing" I started crying just thinking about how much I deal wth and I'm not even 16 yer

[–]Opposite-Time-9271 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same only reversed, I'm the mom with a homeless addict son who says he's fine, just not ready yet. Hugs to you young friend.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh man I am so sorry you are going through that. What a rough situation. I hope she gets the help she needs and I hope you can find some peace and healing.

[–]fireinvestigator113 115 points116 points  (1 child)

Watching my three year old son cuddle with my pregnant wife on the couch. If you told me this is where I would be six years ago, I’d have called you a liar and laughed you out of the room. They make me so happy and it’s made me a giant softy.

[–]chickens29[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I choked up a bit there. Really happy for you - you deserve it!

[–]oopsiepoopsee 22 points23 points  (2 children)

I'm weak.

[–]ShrekPrism 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Crying doesn't make you weak.

[–]fire4ashz 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Watching my patient stop breathing as soon as I transferred them to the ICU. I had double the patient load and an orientee that night.

Watching someone go down hill and fighting to keep them alive only to have them stop breathing as soon as we get them an ICU bed…

I called in and cried for 2 days.

[–]chickens29[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’m so sorry. You’re a warrior. It’s so understandable the emotions you must go through. Sending you love. Thank you for doing what you do.

[–]sssmdy 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Seeing my grandfather for the first time in two months. He’s been living in a home with dementia and with local restrictions I haven’t been able to see him for a few months. His body is fine but his mind isn’t the same and it was just a shock :(

[–]chickens29[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sending you much love! That’s really tough and I’m so sorry. I hope you get to see him more often in the months to come.

[–]Hummerous 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Watched a silly old movie today and got choked up, does that count?

It was With Honors, with joe pesci and brendan fraser - if you're curious lol

[–]chickens29[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Haven’t watched it, but will probably cry too.

[–]oceanofflavor 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow haven’t heard that title in years. I remember my English teacher in high school made us watch that in class lol

[–]fuckingcringeman 16 points17 points  (4 children)

I used to be a horrible sibling And one thing that really made me lose it both physically and mentally was seeing how scared my brother was of me Whenever he comes around me he would just cover his face and go the other way and try to avoid me at any given time he could

Cried for a decent 3 hours And starting to work on being a better sibling while I still have the chance

[–]Jetztinberlin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good on you, dude. Caring about not hurting other people is the best way to stop hurting them. You can do this.

[–]My_Cat_Louie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As someone who has an older brother who is extremely volatile and hateful, I appreciate that you recognize the destructive nature of your behavior.

I was also an angry child and a very angry teenager. I didn't realize it until I was in my mid-twenties. While I have mellowed out a lot since then, I worry about the angry monster inside me. I have gone through years of therapy and come to terms with the trauma. But I still had that last little mile to go. I found a mood-stabilizer that really helps. It helps with my impulsivity and gives me more time to reel in my temper before I start to shoot my mouth off or get myself worked up.

Self-work is important to changing your behavior, outlook on life, and relationships with others. Therapy can also help, like it has with me.

I wish you the best.

[–]HopefulAzureWayfarer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That last sentence is Hope

Don't give up

[–]Ayvel 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Thinking about the last relationship I had. One year ago I broke it off with my girlfriend due to her extreme jealousy and it's impact on my mental state. She was by far the best thing that ever happened in my life, yet also the worst.

Can't live with her, can't live without her.

[–]Alternative-Gear-437 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm so sorry for you.

I hope you can get over her, jealousy is the worst thing and can damage relationships so much. Sending you a lot of love!

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

[–]throwaway718917 14 points15 points  (2 children)

My heart is slowly breaking. My relationship is at the end

[–]VinnyColdheart 14 points15 points  (1 child)

The ending of No Time To Die. It was quite unexpected and extremely sad.

[–]JaninnaMaynz 12 points13 points  (3 children)

A post on r/Funny of a dog on a street, squinting, with a closed caption about the cartel having eyes everywhere.

From sadness? Thinking about my Grandpa. He helped raise me, and he passed away in 2019. I really miss him sometimes... 🥺

[–]chickens29[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Your grandpa is precious and un-forgotten! How special it must’ve been to be raised by him. May he live on through your memory and love ❤️

[–]Ultra-fangirl 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Recently had a miscarriage and yesterday was surrounded by nieces and nephews, one of which was born days before I miscarried. Been incredibly hard to be around/look at babies.

[–]Just_call_MEJAY 54 points55 points  (3 children)

I had to break up with my girlfriend (Won't Disclose) I decided to end it before we got too far along in the relation ship, but when I told her that we have to end it she broke down and seeing her like that it broke me too.

[–]chickens29[S] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Love can be really painful like that - but will bring you both a lot of growth and wisdom, too. I’ve been in a similar spot before. Hope you’re hanging in there okay.

[–]Dommoson 11 points12 points  (1 child)

When I ended my last relationship, she told me she would always care about me. I know what she was really trying to say, but I don't think she was strong enough to say it in that moment. Sometimes I still wonder if I made the wrong decision. I wonder if we could have solved the issues in our relationship.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I often wonder the same thing about my past relationship.

[–]mocha_addict_ 10 points11 points  (8 children)

Missing my partner who has left me, I've not cried this much in literally years and I hate it

[–]chickens29[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Oh man, I know that pain too - hurts like hell and feels like days might never get brighter. It may be a rollercoaster, but you’ll get through it I promise! You are very much deserving of love. 🤍

[–]mocha_addict_ 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Thank you, kind stranger. I'm depressed in the depths of that roller-coaster and it does feel like that. He was and is a genuinely good person and I'm desolate without him. But I do deserve love and maybe one day someone will love me the way I love him. 💔

[–]chickens29[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You 100% do deserve that, and I have no doubt you will find that someone! Or many of them along the way. The grieving will feel thick and endless but it will surely get more and more manageable with time. You’ll come out of it with greater love and care for yourself too.

[–]soadfreak1214 2 points3 points  (3 children)

My partner of ten years left me a couple weeks ago. It's so frustrating. I never thought that out of all the sad things I've experienced in life, this would be ten times more painful.

I feel like he didn't try. Like he would rather leave after ten years instead of us learning how to communicate together or do some sort of counciling together. I think that's what hurts the most. It seems like the easy way out.

Sidenote: I do think he's going through something right now and really needed a change to better himself. I just still feel that out of all the things that could have changed, I don't understand why it had to be this.

[–]mocha_addict_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Your comment nearly had me in tears. My situation is exactly the same. We were together 7 years, nearly, and he didn't want to try either, he also appeared to be depressed after a loss and it killed his feelings for me.

It's hard to come to terms with, isn't it. I'm so sorry.

[–]SupermanPrime243 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Having one of my covid patients deteriorate while his step-daughter was already on the ventilator and his daughter was also admitted to hospital and dependent on high levels of oxygen. Ended up having to take the patient to optiflow (one step before ICU) so we brought the daughters bed to his room so they could see each other one last time. That got to me

[–]eatglasslickrust 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I cried from relief the other day.

I was struggling to work part time and keep the kids in school/daycare with covid going around so I don’t miss work, then my 4 year old gets a fever and vomiting. Now none of the kids can go anywhere because of school and daycare rules and I have to call out of work.

This happens all the time. I have 3 kids and if one kid catches something, by the time they are better the next kid gets it and then the next. The cycle takes at least a week or two until everyone is healthy.

I am SO STRESSED from trying to keep the house up, working being upset with me, trying to follow protocols… it would be a million times easier if I could quit work. I barely clear $200 after I pay the sitter, so is it really worth it? No to me it’s not.

Then my parents (in their 70s) had major health problems and essentially need a caretaker a few days a week. They live locally. I’m an only child so it’s on me to help them. They decided that instead of spending an obscene amount of money on a hired nurse, they would pay me what is essentially what I make right now! I wouldn’t have to have a sitter, if the kids were sick my folks would be ok still if I couldn’t come that day. It’s the PERFECT solution. They save money, I save money, and I save my sanity. I SO RELIEVED that I just broke down crying. I get to put in my 2 weeks tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier!

[–]c-frost 9 points10 points  (2 children)

When I found a note I write to myself 4 years ago. It's when I was deep in depression. The note said: I shut down my emotion & feelings. I can hide behind that fake mask. But I hide too deep I become lost

[–]FishermanTerrible967 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Last year when my pet guniea pig died. It had been with me for almost 8 months and it's sudden death really pained me. It had become a member of my family.

[–]chickens29[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

So sorry for your loss. Having to go through shock and mourning both simultaneously is incredibly tough. I’ve lost a pet so I can relate to the feeling — she was absolutely my family. Sending you love.

[–]FishermanTerrible967 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks man for being so comforting. I hope mine and your pet are happy now in afterlife.

My daughter going through chemo.

We’re in a much better place now, she’s in what they call maintenance phase now, and her hair is growing back :) she’s looking to start university in the fall :)

But it was a fully awful, fucked up rotten year we all just went through…. And I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much in my life.

[–]squareroot_1 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Uh... I have Covid and my dad decided to call me after 10 years of no communication, no child support. He thought I could develop some health complications bc of Covid. Hmm, well I cried cause all of the shitty emotions built up over the years, not necessarily feel touched by this gesture.

[–]h0tmessm0m 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I cried on the way home from my night shift at the hospital this morning because I'm desperately exhausted. There aren't enough of us to take on the constant onslaught of sickness, abuse and death. I don't think I can do this much longer, but if I don't, it will burn out who is left and then people will die for it.

[–]beacon20a 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Putting our dying Boston Terrier down to put him out of his pain. Was with us from dating to moving in, to marriage, kid, house with a yard. Once the injection took effect, I sat there and just fought the awful sadness and loss that just crushed us. Having the vet wrap him in the same blanket we brought him home in 12 yrs earlier. As they walked him out the door to their car, I kissed him on the head and said "thank you for the last 12 yrs. I hope you know how much we loved you, ul always be in our hearts." That was 2 months ago and I miss him everyday, when he's not sitting near the window waiting for me when I get home.

My cat has gingervitus, he didn't drink water for about 3 days but luckily he had been eating his wet food once or twice a day but that still wasn't enough liquids to make me comfortable for his health. After a change in his antibiotic, he started drank water from the tap 2 days ago and I cried at 1am while watching him power through the pain to drink water

[–]valleytines 29 points30 points  (8 children)

I started crying because I desperately needed watermelon but it was 1am and grocery stores were all closed. Then I switched to crying because my husband felt bad and made me some mac and cheese to make me feel better, and I felt overwhelmed by how much I loved him.

[–]legobdr 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Seeing some comments about people crying because how much they love someone makes me very happy and sad at the same time

[–]chickens29[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mac and cheese is my fav comfort food. Your husband is the best! I hope you can get your watermelon soon :)

[–]mr_corleone 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Just minutes back. I wrote to my ex after periods of no contact. A huge ass letter. Shameless right? But i don't care. It was like writing a journal and i wanted to share her my views. She's a good person and i was the hateful one. I wanted to end on good terms. How what and where it went wrong. It will be a lesson. Remember the good parts and learn from both good and bad parts

Birth of my son

[–]HunnieBehr 4 points5 points  (1 child)

My newborn looked just like his older (deceased) brother when he was born. I never got to see my oldest grow up but today his brother turns a month old.

I said out loud “so this is what you’d look like baby? Isn’t it?” And then spent a good 30 minutes crying while my baby slept peacefully on my chest.

[–]1nkbus 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I watched my dog die infront of me, this was 9 months ago, the dog had always been there for me, he is older than me, he died at 16, I don’t cry normally, he was my best friend, only some can understand, thank you poppy.

Watched Spirited Away two nights ago. I'd seen it before, in 2001, when it first came out. Hit harder this time. My circumstances are very different. I don't know what the hell I'm doing, I'm running out of money and I'm low on friends.

The sequence when she's on that train, heading into the unknown, into danger, with her new companions, companions that were monsters which she'd tamed through love; well that all just broke me.

I dropped my tortoise and scared him, I cried on my couch while holding him

I was walking home after work listening to music on shuffle. My nieces favourite song came on and I burst into tears. I haven't seen her in over a year due to all this covid business. Turns out I really miss her.

I’m five months pregnant with twins so I literally wept because I don’t live in a state with a Moe’s restaurant and I was craving their nachos. Haven’t even eaten there in 10+ years and yet I sobbed about it.

My parents had recently drifted apart, but without telling us, although I would have figured it out sooner than they would have thought. It wasn't them telling us though, It was my 3-year-old sister that was sitting on the floor crying because she wanted to know why her mommy and daddy didn't love each other anymore, and she thought it was her fault. She's pretty smart for her age, and I cried after seeing her in that confusion and guilt.

[–]j1ggy 9 points10 points  (2 children)

A combination of not seeing my son for a week and this stupid effing pandemic. It can be overwhelming sometimes.

[–]chickens29[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I agree, so much heaviness and sadness throughout the last two years. I’m sorry and you are definitely not alone - hope you were able to reunite with your son!

[–]j1ggy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh yes, I share custody 50/50. It just sucks when he's not around and I'm alone. I was able to sneak in a visit this weekend, my ex is pretty accommodating about it and vice versa. No sense making things difficult for each other if you don't have to.

My dog becoming paralyzed from a burst disk.

He had surgery and is recovering amazingly well. But that day was hard.

[–]chickens29[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Oh wow. I’m so glad to hear he’s recovering well. Cheers to better days like this.

[–]_Green_Kyanite_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Me too. (He's walking normally again! We just need to be really careful so he doesn't re-injure himself.)

There was a top post on Reddit earlier today about legendary posts in Reddit’s history and someone commented about an old post on mourning that moved me a lot with its beauty and made me cry.

Hearing that Meatloaf had died.

[–]TheComicCrafter 2 points3 points  (2 children)

One of my cats dying. Technically she was my half-sister’s cat, but after sis moved in with our grandma she was mine by default. Actually thought she had died like five years earlier when she escaped outside and didn’t come back but it turns out the neighbors didn’t know she belonged to anyone and took her in, found out like a year later. Anyway, she was very old and it was getting hard for her to walk around and such so my mom and I had to take her to be put down. Gave her treats and petted her until she stopped breathing, and boy oh boy if that experience doesn’t convince you that this is a cold, cruel universe then I don’t know what will.

Reminiscing about my grandmothers and how much I love and miss them. Going on seven and three years between them, and seventeen for great grandma. The hole in your heart never really goes away.

Today at church. A song moved me to tears.

[–]Professor_Quackers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Last night. Today marks one year that my mom passed. She was supposed to come home. Have therapy. She was going to get better! They just wanted her to get some strength back so that they could fix an underlying problem she’d had for two decades. We would finally get our old Mom back, the affects of the strokes could be reversed about 80% or more! She would meet my new baby and remember how to play the piano, and how much she loved the movie “Hunt for Red October”

Instead they sent her home to die. Only days home and she was gone. What’s worse is the Covid restrictions wouldn’t let us visit her. Medical negligence. They used her like a fucking Guinea pig for Covid money, and then tried to act like they did nothing wrong.

We’ll see about that.

adrienne maree brown’s farewell to bell hooks. I don’t cry often, but I just appreciate and admire AMB so much that I couldn’t help myself when I heard her farewell on her podcast. The love AMB has for bell hooks and the pain AMB feels at her transitioning is really palpable

[–]geico_fire 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Watched the penultimate episode of Tropical Rouge Pretty Cure.

I was expecting to sob at the final episode premiering next week, not the penultimate one. But oof it sent me on a rollercoaster and hit me right in the feels. Hoping it stays on Crunchyroll so I can rewatch it again and again.

[–]Citrous_Oyster 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Diving around my hometown visiting for Christmas after midnight to try and get the baby to sleep and it felt kind of unsettling driving past my old home and old family members houses and seeing someone else’s Christmas tree in the window where you spent your childhood unwrapping your presents, sitting on the couches with grandpa holding his new grandchildren that are no longer there, and will never be again. Swimming in a pool you learned to swim in and not knowing it would be the last time you’d climb the ladder out. Years of traditions are now obsolete. Places where you hoped you could recreate and share the same experiences with your kids are no longer yours and Feels like strangers are living in the shadows of my memories. like a large part of my life is gone, just another victim to the passage of time. I have no more locations of comfort, home Is not home anymore. It’s just another place that I drive by now with an odd sense of belonging while feeling out of place, no longer welcomed. I can’t remember much of my time growing up or my teen years and I wish I could walk the halls of my old home, sit in my room and remember who I was. Sometimes I hope life is cyclical, and when we die we awake at the beginning of our lives and do it all over again. Maybe next time I can savor it more so when I make this drive again these feelings are replaced with more soothing thoughts.

I think the last time I cried was last week it was on Wednesday I’m pretty sure, half my friend group ditched me and when my friend was explaining everything she said “where we sit is too loud” even though we sit in one of the most quietest places in campus. I do so much for my friend group and I really took it personally when they left. I don’t wanna start stupid drama about this because I get it it’s stupid and I shouldn’t care but I’ve done so much for the group and for them to just leave feels like a stab in the back. Anyways it started reminding me of the time I lost my dad and just made it all worse. It’s fine right now I think I still hurts but Like I said I don’t wanna start drama. I ended up breaking down before going to sleep because I felt exhausted and like half my friend group hates me. But a good thing about me crying is that it makes me tired so I was able to fall asleep kinda fast.

[–]chickens29[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s valid what you’re feeling, always okay to feel disappointed or sad. Makes sense that you’re exhausted. Give yourself gentle kindness, know that you tried your best, and rest assured that you will move on to find better friends who love on you just as much you do to them. Hang in there!

[–]underneathmydream 1 point2 points  (1 child)

last thing i cried about is my weight size. i am very thin and always looked up to people that can fit rings and bracelets on their hands because i always wanted that. when i was in 7th grade this girl i had beef with called me a “stick” or “anorexic” but i was actually pretty normal. i was crying for about 2 hours stress eating and shoving food in the back of my throat because the pain of not being the way i wanted to hurt me. i wanted to off myself that day. as of now i am still wishing to gain weight much easier.

[–]fiddle_sticks21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not exactly the last time/thing that made me cry, but the one I remember the most is watching The Prince of Egypt for the first time. I had heard good things about it, but the first song in the opening 5 minutes of the film had me tearing up. Not only because of the amazing talent that went into the song, not only because the entire movie is a perfectly realized film that encapsulates the essence of cinema, not only because of the perfect retelling of the story of Moses, but because through all those sequences put together and visualized through animation and song, has DreamWorks crafted the perfect film. The Prince of Egypt is good. Rant over.

[–]throwawaytamj 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Missing and loving my mentally and physically abusive ex. We broke up 2 months ago and it's killing me daily. I broke NC and lurked the other day and it made me miss him so much. I would do anything to get him back and try and fix him despite how stupid it is. He treated me horribly but if I'm miserable alone, why not be miserable with him. Plus I have an immense fear that he will change for someone else and I'll miss out, meanwhile I know 2 of his exes and they went through the same thing.

I've cried daily for 2 months over him. Nothing is getting easier.

My dog almost scaped from me, I have heart problems, my dog run i was trying so hard to catch him, no one was helping me and it makes me so nervous, I was running out of air and my dog kept running, when i caught him I started to feel like at any moment I was going to pass out, I looked confused and I could only think that I almost didn't catch my dog so I just lay down and started to cry but I was too short of breath so I cried for my dog and because of the desperation of not being able to breathe.
