Tears of joy seem like a rare thing. Not sure whether that's a normal reaction to a very happy occasion or something that only happens to certain people.
I did recently when I found out that my soon to be born child is a girl. Boys are dicks.
I didn't think I really cared all that much, but when the technician told us it was girl I suddenly got a little teary. It was a completely strange and unexpected emotional reaction, thus.....tears of joy.
uh, i don't know? maybe? probably? maybe not? i have no idea.
thats kinda weird to think just now. cus generally im a pretty happy-go-lucky guy even though my life kinda blows. so i could see myself crying joyful tears but i dont specifically remember doing it. i probably cried happy tears in one of those touching father-son drama movie moments, those always get me and they're not sad so joy i guess?
fuck it i dunno!
I think tears of joy are more common than people think; they just don't necessarily remember them next to the actual thing they're happy about. That kind of steals the tears' thunder.
I teared up a bit at my brother's wedding, and I'm pretty sure I shed some tears when I finally beat MRSA. I teared up post-surgery a few times, as well.
that's a normal reaction to a very happy occasion
I think it's this. Personally tears of joy for me happen when I sense accomplished an objective after a great struggle. I think it's rare because people don't tend to believe in great struggles, they tend to avoid them.
Yes, multiple times, but usually under the influence of marijuana. I can recall once listening to music while sitting outside high and thinking to myself how amazing the Earth and nature are. I started to tear up and cried a bit with a smile on my face. I know what you're thinking, why am I not in jail learning my lesson?
Laughing is joyful right? I do that all the time (I remember the first time I watched The Room, when Johnny throws down that glass for no reason and it makes a booming noise as it shatters, I lost it)
If we're not counting that, I'd say that last time happened was actually the end of the Big Live Live Show when Brad got that headshot. It was something man.
I recently got a position at a firm in my industry that puts me way ahead of the curb. At my age, it's hard to find people who respect me. When I got out of the office and sat in my car I turned on some chill music and my eyes got watery. I didn't *cry* but I think it still counts.
