How to use cry in a sentence?
If you love me then really love me. Don’t pretend, don’t just say it, and don’t leave like everyone before you. Love me, and love me to the end, stand by my side, and hold me when I cry. Love me like it’s the only chance you’ve got, because even though I’m not the best at saying “no” when someone offers love, I’m one bruise away from being broken. So love me like you mean it
It strikes me as gruesome and comical that in our culture we have an expectation that man can always solve his problems. This is so untrue that it makes me want to cry--or laugh.
There are times when I just need to cry.
I like this brief and highly insightful advice, by Dr. Seuss, about anything that happens in life: 'Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.' Things change. Seasons change. Fashions change. People change. Everything passes. Familiar doors close and new doors open. Opportunity knocks, and circle of life goes on. Life moves on. Thus the beauty and the essence of Life can be summarized, IMHO, in just two words 'Life continues!' So, don't worry, be happy, and be in sync with ebbs and flows of life. Make it a good one!
No, it's not okay to cry, because when dignity is all you have left you can't afford to lose it.
