    not in the sense of faking sadness but in the sense that it's all to easy to bring to mind so much there is to be genuinely grieved about. also those heart warming kinds of incidents that turn out right inspite of impossible odds and oppression, the tears of 'joy' kind of thing, that are also tears of sadness because of the odds being stacked against them. so yah it's very possible to make myself cry thinking about things like that.

    All I have to do is think of a day in my childhood. Surprised it hasn't institutionalized me!

    Actually, I think it's relatively easy for me to make myself cry. All I have to do is think about certain things.

    I made myself cry once.
    I was living without emotions for so long, I just stared at the full moon for an hour until I wept a bit.
    Felt a little less empty, but still there was a void...

    I'm on an anti-depressant, but I still feel all emotions. I just don't get the over-whelming depression and anxiety I used to get. Now I react normally to things instead of over-react.
