How can I be less emotional?

I cry at everything. Whether good or bad.
And I hate being like that! I wanna laugh more. Even if I laugh, tears starts coming :( help!

It's good for you to be emotional ! It shows you have a real heart and soul. Don't change, just stay the way you are! If you cry when you laugh, it just means you have a good sense of humor! There isn't anything wrong and please don't change! Whenever you feel a little blue, just SMILE ! It's really good for you. Stay emotional! As you get older, you will need this in life. Hang in there and there is nothing wrong with crying.

Everybody is emotional, I don't this there is anything wrong with it either... But what I do if I feel down or sad, I would watch a funny youtube video, or a funny movie/TV Show... That always helps... If you really need help, Talk to your friends and family; It always helps to talk stuff out. I hope this helped

I'm an emotional person as well. I know that's sometimes embarrassing, which sucks. But I don't think there is much anyone can do about it, except learn to live with it. (I'd rather be an emotional person than someone who rarely cries or laughs.)
But the good thing is, I laugh more than I cry.

At everything and you hate it. These two are problems. train to control yourself a bit. A little self controlling is a good thing that you can obtain by practicing.

I have that too..but just know it's normal. If you're sad, just know that everything WILL get better in time..And that people don't always go out of their way to hurt you. You could possibly take something said incorrectly. :)

It's good to be emotional! But honestly, I don't like to look like some kinda drama queen at school. I usually just tell people I have allergies or I hurt myself, if my face turns red. I can't just stop crying so I lie.

I think you have feelings cropped up inside of you which you have not spoke about or even forgotten...Really think you should talk to someone about this, it could cause major issues when you're older. You need to learn how to express your feelings in another way, don't crop up anything inside of you. On the long run it will break you into pieces, let it go girl!

It's a sign of innocence.
Keep that innocence inside you, NEVER let it out! ;)

Sometimes when I cry I just joke about it, but believe me, you end up being the complete opposite,
your heart hardens, and you'll never take things seriously like before.
well, that's my opinion... :)

I never really lost my emotional side. While most emotions are good, crying over small things can get frustrating when it feels like you really help yourself. When I was little, I cried at everything (you wouldn't believe what little things I cried over! lol) . If you get emotional over very small things that many people wouldn't cry about, I would recommend learning some techniques to help you stay calm. If that doesn't work, like it didn't for me, you should look for someone you're close to like a family member or a counselor to give you extra support and feedback. But of course, emotions aren't bad things to have, but if your emotions are getting you concerned, that's when you should take action and make sure. :)

Grow up! Nobody gives a rats arse if cry yourself to sleep or not! You"ve heard the old adage...Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and you blah, blah, blah. Who frackin gives a shite. Either go out with some buds and have good time or go cry yourself to sleep. By budsI I mean the ol' herb superb, the medicinal wonder weed, com' on you know what I'm talking about! Go camp in the woods and check out the stars and laugh yourself so stupid you blow snot bubbles just thinking of all the time you wasted worrying all that nonsense. Better yet, find your significant other (or your friend's other) and head for the woods, get high, get naked, and enjoy the wonders of a bountiful universe!!

See the emotional/craziness as something different from you. In truth, emotions/feelings come and go,
For instance, someone openly insults you. You feel the rage/upset building up inside you. You can look at the emotion and be aware of it without becoming involved in it. There is you and then separate from you is the emotion. There is the emotion, then there is you, a capable, smart person. You can see what you would be if you let that emotion animate you (visions of yourself ranting and raving) and have a good laugh.
