Why do i cry so easily watching movies?

Are you one of those people who cry at the drop of a hat while watching movies? Do you find yourself bawling your eyes out during heart-wrenching scenes, often to the point where it’s embarrassing in front of others? Well, my dear friend, fear not as you are not alone!

It’s okay to be emotional and get teary-eyed while watching a movie. After all, these films were created ingeniously by talented directors and producers specifically for this effect on us. Tears aren’t always tears of sadness but could also be tears of joy or deep appreciation.

So let’s dive into why we turn into blubbering messes over cinematic stories that don’t even exist:

The Curse Of Heightened Empathy

Have you ever heard someone say: “Oh wow! That was so sad when Jake died”, only for your response to be more along the lines of “What!? He died???”. The reason is because everyone processes emotions differently. People with a more heightened sense of empathy tend to be affected much more deeply than others.

Empathy is our ability to understand and share other people’s feelings simultaneously as them. While some might consider empathy an excellent superpower, researchers have linked it with experiencing emotional overload which can cause excessive crying bouts that many individuals relate with unhappy sentiments portrayed in Hollywood films.

Authentic Acting

Actors’ abilities in portraying their respective characters’ lives equate directly with our emotions. Actors who seem genuine make us believe they too may have been through life-altering events depicted on camera ← this idea resonates well within ourselves – hence causing excessive tears.

Plus, if an actor performs their role properly enough – making viewers connect emotionally raised throughout the overall movie experience-, resulting from full-on despair when something tragic happens at any point later on just like shutting down completely after seeing someone/thing pass away, mainly when their story touched us deeply before.

People often get so into the role of a character that they forget it’s all just an act. Consequently, we feel pain and hurt because our emotions are real, causing us to shed tears even if deep inside we know its only on screen.

Playing Into Expectations

Our societal perception of what is deemed “socially acceptable” comes with guidelines for how people should portray themselves in different settings. During life events such as weddings or church services, how many times do you remember someone getting emotional? Oftentimes, at these events – bawling out loud isn’t accepted since society expects otherwise but crying while watching movies from deepest parts of your soul is deemed perfectly okay; maybe due to social conditioning.

Humans have been conditioned to adhere to specific expectations set by our surrounding environment/peers. As such- children who grow up experiencing various characters and fictional tales tend more towards being expressive during dramatic scenes compared with those deprived of classic dramatized storytelling examples like actors making impact through performances filled with both humour & heartache (mimicking real life).

Movies’ “wholesomeness” usually triggers instantaneous thought processes tilting towards expected responses related directly via influence brought onto person/persona as determined by surroundings/environmental factors one finds oneself dominated within daily activities.

Catharsis: Releasing Of Long-Buried Feelings

Crying releases a build-up of emotions pent-up inside every human being often caused by triggers indirectly related/upstream from movie choice selection itself. Beginning phenomenon termed cathartic unfoldment resulting in play inherent within drama genre because audiences expect relatable situations associated with tumultuous times ahead yet — sadness portrayed proves too taxing foreshadowing long-term psychological draining effects.

Feeling sad does relieve feelings retained internally – bringing relief whenever tension has built up over a prolonged period due things left unattended or handled improperly based upon previous conflicts experienced by one’s lifestyle.

A Sense of Psychological Bonding

Sometimes, we just get touched by a particularly well-written and executed film. It stirs up something deep inside us that creates an indelible connection to the characters on screen. We see ourselves in their vulnerabilities, we relate to their struggles, and it touches our heartsstrings beyond comprehension hence loosening those tears flowing out like a valve release from within.

The expression of psychological bonding almost never occurs outside deeply emotional circumscribed domains because people have grown afraid showing equivalent vulnerability during close interpersonal relationships; they maintain public perception enough distance keeping this real part hidden behind varied levels facade concealing true feelings for random & often unknown reasons.

However when audience merges with character(s) experience currently being watched enacted concurrently feeling brought forth through general narrative momentum shown – not resist holding back copious amounts stimulated through crying fits caused via resonating resonance felt between them both.

In conclusion, movies overwhelmingly contain storylines that terminate (or mutate- continuing legacy ahead with family contingent offsprings), eliciting an array of emotions felt internally. Humans are subjective creatures — behaviorally impacted largely based upon individual expectations interacting daily provoking fundamental reactions albeit various styles displayed). So give yourself permission to cry silly over your favorite chick flicks or whatever makes you feel human again once more since these moments experience become galvanizing empowering long-lasting memories encompassing occurrences along journey!
