do you tear up?

I work a lot with people. Sometimes I can relate to their problems or I just feel sorry for people telling me an unbelievable story. It depends on the day but sometimes I just feel my eyes filling up with tears in just a second. They just water and my nose starts running. Usually the tears don't flow but I have to wipe the eyes and the nose. My voice is no problem in these moments, it is not like sobbing or crying, just the tears and the running nose. Do you know such situations? For me it feels embarassing, I guess most don't even realize it and the others think of me as a sensitive or empathic person...

Yes, I tear up quite often. Usually from thinking about stuff, like an emotional (real or fictional) situation or a verse from a song.

I think the last time I teared up was yesterday while walking to work. I can't remember why since I tend to get lost in thought very often. Eye remember my eyes filling up and getting a lump in the throat, and blinking rapidly. I also had to blow my nose.

Not always as it usually comes down to how I'm feeling at that particular moment, but I do find myself tearing up sometimes. If I'm watching a nostalgic video then I might tear up. Sometimes it results in me crying for a bit as well.

Re: do you tear up?

Sometimes when I'm watching a movie and there's a particularly emotional scene, I notice that my breath kind of catches in my throat and tears spring into my eyes, but I don't actually cry.  For some reason happy moments tend to affect me more than sad ones.  

It always catches me by surprise, since I'm not much of a crier -- I think it probably happens more often when I'm tired or stressed out.

I think being able to relate to others' feelings is a gift from God, even if I've never gone that route myself.  Sometimes breaking down and crying with somebody is just the best thing for all concerned.

I've been going through a rough patch personally, and find that lately I tear up over ridiculous things - like Disney songs (especially if I'm trying to sing along), anything remotely touching on TV, or even just out of nowhere; I feel my throat tighten and my eyes start to prickle, and I know I'm about to cry again. Just thinking about it can make me cry.

Actually, I tear up much more often than I cry openly.
