it really bothers me when people tell me not to cry. it’s a natural response to anger, sadness, frustration, stress and sometimes happiness. im not being ‘weak’ or 'unreasonable’ or 'overly sensitive’ or even 'childish’ when I cry. im not 'over reacting’ either, it’s a way I express my emotions and feelings when im going through or trying to deal with something.

the only thing you do by pointing out that im crying is make me more angry, frustrated, sad, and upset and it makes me not want to tell you anything.

if you make a mockery of my tears why would I want to open up to you about the reason behind my tears? don’t invalidate the way I express my emotions and feelings and then be offended when I don’t want to talk you about things going on in my life.
