How do i stop being emotional for no reason

Nothing wrong with being emotional but sometimes I cry for no reason. Happens maybe once every few months
I just feel this sudden deep sadness and start crying and I have no idea why I am sad. Only ever happened when I am alone so no one has called me crazy yet. One time I was watching a funny video and then I started sobbing. Very weird. Been happening since last year.

Is It Normal?

  • Once every few months?? Isn't that normal? Everyone has emotions to process even if they aren't apparent at the surface, you probably built up a bit of stress over the months and cry to release it. I think it's fine as long as you are able to move past it afterwards and it's not like, every other week or more.

  • I would suggest therapy to uncover the deeper roots of your sadness. There's probably many events in your past behind it. I had similar issues and therapy helped me to understand and cope with them. Good luck from an empathic friend.

  • I never cry for no reason. I can always pinpoint the reason. Maybe you need to become more self-aware and aware of your emotions.

    • No offense but don't you literally have autism? This isn't how most people experience emotion

  • Just stop it.

  • It might just be your release, I wouldn’t stop anything you’re doing naturally and involuntarily.

  • With respect to what other people have suggested, I don't think this is concerning. Therapy is expensive, unless you have a specific issue to work through or your emotional state is an impediment to living life, I don't recommend going. Sometimes we're happy for no discernable reason, sometimes we're sad, it's human. Best of luck to you.

  • Do you have a habit of bottling up emotions? I do this if I've been bottling things up for awhile and it takes little to nothing for something to be "the straw that breaks the camel's back". Sometimes I think we just need to release stress/pain/etc. and often feel better after crying.

  • Talk to your doctor about this!

  • It’s been a rough few years for most people, it’s not surprising if you’re feeling emotionally over-stretched. I second the advice to speak to a therapist about this.
