Maybe it’s that time of the month. Maybe it’s the birth control you’re on. Maybe you’re really drunk, or maybe you really wish you were drunk. Whatever the situation is, you want to cry. And not like, little bitch tears. You want to have a full-fledged, sitting on the bathroom floor, so hard your stomach hurts, cry. Who knows what compels us to want to sob our brains out (hormones?). Whatever it is, sometimes all you want is a damn good cry. So I’ve taken it upon myself to compile the best “cry worthy” things. Some movie clips, some songs, some phrases and posts. Because I don’t care who you are, it just feels good.
The last gut-wrenching letter in P.S. I Love You.
And then the last letter in The Notebook.
When Bing Bong sacrifices himself and you felt like your childhood just died.
Pretty much all of Good Will Hunting, but especially the moment when Robin Williams is talking about his movie-wife.
And then this whole thing.
Thiiiis effing song.
Marley and Me. Because that movie is just brutal.
And then, the classic and ever-painful poem, The Rainbow Bridge.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
The furnace scene that made you sob quietly to yourself whilst trying to be brave.
And then when Toy Story 3 came to a painfully bittersweet close, and you realized you grew up with these movies and you’re sort of an adult and things move on and GOD why is it so hard?
Three words: The Lion King.
The words to this song that just vividly make you think of your first love.
The scene of Fresh Prince that literally changed everything.
“YOU JUMP I JUMP REMEMBER?!” Ugh.
And the fact that we’ll still never let go.
This sob-inducing classic.
When Carrie gets left at the altar.
And Sirius’s death in the book.
Harry saw Sirius duck Bellatrix’s jet of red light: He was laughing at her. “Come on, you can do better than that!” he yelled, his voice echoing around the cavernous room.
The second jet of light hit him squarely on the chest.
The laughter had not quite died from his face, but his eyes widened in shock.
It seemed to take Sirius an age to fall. His body curved in a graceful arc as he sank backward through the ragged veil hanging from the arch….
And Harry saw the look of mingled fear and surprise on his godfather’s wasted, once-handsome face as he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind and then fell back into place. — Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
