    I honestly haven't cried since I was 12 years old.





    At the same time though, I think a family does needs to have someone who is able to keep things in line in challenging times.

    Crying doesn't really help much of anything under most circumstances.
    Crying does help. It is a form of stress release.

    Come on Greg, you can cry on my shoulder.

Or he came home and sat down doing nothing.

    He cheated repeatedly on my mother and was a non-existent father who after my mother finally decided to divorce him and my and my sister were moving out with her, wanted half of everything from the marriage, including all my toys, train set, bed, my bike and all the possessions of my sister.

    My sister and me were not going to have visits with my dad, one day his lawyer came by and he said to me and my sister that if we would agree to visits, we would get a savings account with a few hundred dollars on it.

    Because I wanted to study after age 18, I would be entitled to extra money from the government because my mother was on welfare and my dad refused to pay anything towards my education (as was his right, I could not have cared less). The only thing he had to do was sign a form stating that he would not give me money. I had to threaten him with court action, actually having to employ a lawyer to write him threatening to take him to court before he actually signed that form.
    Okay. That's a lot worse. He sounds like an absolutely worthless excuse for a man.

    Sure, but that's usually not productive. There is a time and a place for crying, just like anything else.

    It is generally better to keep a cool head under most circumstances.

    Nah. I'll take an angry smoke break and find a nice wall to punch.

    That's works just as good.

    Crying isn't meant to be productive. I cry when I've hit my breaking point. Once I'm done with my pity party THEN I can be productive and do something about whatever it is that "broke" me.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    It's just a way to relieve stress, instead of punching something or someone.

    Sure. It simply happens to be the case that, due to either intrinsic biology or cultural conditioning, men are a lot better at pushing that "breaking point" back than many women.

    I don't necessarily view that as being a "bad" thing. It can actually come in rather useful.

    I mean... Let's face it. There are women out there who will almost literally cry at the drop of a hat.

    That really doesn't help anything.
