I don't LIKE crying and struggle to hold it in. The only times I really let go are in the shower and at night in bed usually.
I cry generally out of frustration or empathy, sometimes fear or desperation. I feel deep connections with others who are crying or sad and immediately feel what they are feeling. Anyone who cries around me, I become a co-crier.
But when it came to my ex it was fear crying or empathy when my daughter cried when her Dad was loud, rough or otherwise unreasonable. But when it came to divorce and all of the proceedings, I was a stoic rock. That was problem solving oriented and frustration had no room - it was action time.
