Jeez, I cry at everything.
Heroics and/or noble acts. Like, for example (spoiler for Cars)
When Lightning McQueen is about to win first place, but then notices that the old champion, King, is damaged and can’t drive, so he sacrifices first place to go back and push King over the finish line.
Lord of the Rings: “I’ll carry you.” And “You bow to no one.”
Things that were quoted to me at certain times by someone I value will cause tears whenever I see them repeated by their original source. Two examples:
- Lord of the Rings: “I would have gone with you until the end. Into the very fires of Mordor.” (May not be exact.) When he says that line, I remember when it was said to me.
- The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows”: “If you should ever leave me, though life would still go on, believe me, the world would show nothing to me, so what good would living do me?”
Pokemon, because of the love and respect that Ash/Satoshi shows for his Pokemon at all times. And how even the bad guys have hearts of gold sometimes. I can’t watch an episode of Pokemon without tears.
Animals. They don’t even have to do anything, but sometimes the cuteness will bring tears to my eyes. (I originally typed “bring teats to my eyes”, heavens no!) And if one suffers or dies I’ll cry more.
Family members dying. You don’t know how many times I’ve cried at posts on this very board. I don’t often post this in the threads, because it’s not about me, but now you know.
Parents and children reconnecting.
Oddly enough, I cry at movies, TV, books and posts online way more than I do at things which actually happen to me. People interacting with me on an ordinary level will usually find me to be a bit cold and unemotional, until they see me tear up when talking about a movie or book or some dumb commercial that struck me the wrong way. I try to avoid watching movies I haven’t seen a thousand times with people who are not used to this.
The main exception to this is that I will cry if I see one of my friends crying.
I will stop now, lest someone call a mental health hotline on me.
