Why do I feel like I'm about to cry?

I'm not a cry baby and I haven't cried in years. it takes a lot to make me cry, and even when I'm really hurt, (physically and emotionally) I don't cry. But recently and today I have had the feeling like I'm about to break down crying, and when I am just about to, I feel fine like nothing ever happened, but I might have a few tears running down my eyes. This happened when I was told that I couldn't get a new phone (I had been getting my hopes up for a while) until next year. I would usually not really care about this and just let it go, but for some reason I was crying a little. not like full out sobbing, though. Also, I feel like I'm about to cry just randomly. I've not had anyone I know die recently or anything sad. And I'm not depressed. Why does this happen? I'm 13, is it just like weird teen hormones or what??

Hormones are a part of it yes, but crying is a way to feel relief when you are really sad or depressed, it's a way to release a bit of those intense emotions. Crying is actually healthy it does not make you a baby (don't ever be ashamed to cry!) anyway with that being said, you've been bottled up for too long in the times you were sad, so your letting it out now. If you ever feel upset and need to cry, don't be ashamed just let it out! It's good for you. Sometimes it even makes you feel better. you've been strong for so long about the bigger things that the little thing (not getting a new phone) was like the last straw on the camel's back, and you lost it. it's normal that's happened to me too! dealing with so much that then the slightest thing was just the last straw and I broke down

Thanks :) saw a quote once I said something like "Crying isn't a weakness, it's showing that you've been too strong for too long" I guess that kind of what I did. Thanks.

Sounds exactly like hormones. Haha. Lots of teens (mostly girls) just break down crying for nothing.
