Do you consider crying a sign of weakness or strength and why?

Report as

Depends on what the person is crying about......If they are crying because their favorite T.V. show got cancelled, or McDonald's stopped selling the McRib, then they are weak fools.....BUT, if they are crying over something serious and called for such emotion, then it's part of life and completely acceptable

Agreed. Some people are really over-emotional though.

I know what you mean....but I'm not sure if that's weakness or not.....but it would be seen as a lack of self-control, which I guess could be considered as weakness

If they're crying because McDonalds stopped selling McRibs they need professional help.

McRib is faux Q.

Well, McDonald's is good...but I didn't throw a big hissy fit when they took the Spicy Chicken McBites away.

Strength, the fact that your strong enough to be honest and accepting of yourself enough to cry. No should be ashamed of crying.

I consider crying to be a sign of strength. It is just one way of expressing emotions.

Weakness, because you are showing your feelings if you don't want to.

I see where you are coming from, but I see it as a strength, because you are showing everyone who sees you crying, that you aren't embarrased to be crying in front of them. I respect your opinion though.

If they're crying because they feel sorry for themselves it's a sign of weakness. If they're crying because of some major trauma, it's normal. If they're tears of joy that's ok too but it doesn't seem like a sign of strength to me. It's just normal. A strong person can cry but the crying itself doesn't seem to me that it's a manifestation of strength.

I would not say it is a weakness at all it just lets out all of that pressure you have bottled up inside of you and if you were to cry about something else like a movie upsetting you or anything out of that category then it just shows that you are a very sensitive compassionate person who is very caring and loving toward others and may be the type to become easily offended at some point from what people say to you...
