Always teary-eyed when seeing a therapist


Whenever I talk about the negative aspects about myself or any negative thoughts I have, I almost start to cry. I try to stop because if I start crying, it will only get worse, and then the next time I come back, I shut myself off even more. What's wrong with me? I don't even feel good about letting these feelings out. It just makes me keep more to myself in the future... So disappointing.

I cried out last time. My eyes started welling up with tears, mostly due to PMS. I was sensitive & emotional during that time, and I'm basically just tired of life!!!

What was the therapist's reaction? Crying probably means that you've hit the nail right on the top regarding your problems, so I'm sure he'd encourage it.

She just handed me a tissue and continued saying that she was going to help me. Okay, that makes sense. Yeah, come to think of it, getting sympathy from somebody triggered those tears.

Saying things about myself that I'm not very proud of makes me very emotional. People always called me a "cry-baby" throughout my life, and I cry a lot so crying isn't an unusual activity for me.

i dont see a therapist but im the exact same way. it's overwhelming saying it aloud and putting it all out there esp all the negative stuff. you think "this is me, this is my life" and it's downright depressing. it def makes it worse like you said having someone (the therapist) feel sympathy for you bc they're seeing the real you that you're so ashamed of.

only god can judge me.

I sometimes talk to my mom about harsh stuff and I just end up crying in her lap. It may seem pathetic but afterwards I feel much better. A long cry always helps

"All of us get lost in the darkness, dreamers learn to steer by the stars"

"When one has been angry for a very long time, one gets used to it. And it becomes comfortable, like... like old leather. And finally... becomes so familiar that one can't ever remember feeling any other way."

ďA guy needs somebody―to be near him. A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Don't make no difference who the guy is, long's he's with you. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an' he gets sick.Ē

I've been like this with this therapist I've seen a few times. I can't help it. She says it is normal, but I can't help but feel extremely silly.
