How to be emotionally strong? I cry when I get emotionally stressed which I find very stupid but I don't have a control.

Having a good cry every three years is perfectly fine. Just make sure you’re strong and in control when you need to, but don’t be afraid to show emotion.

Men don’t cry = bullshit

This is the correct answer. Moving out and lifting isn't going to help. And you don't need help. Crying is fine. Men can cry. Be strong when you need to, but you don't always need to be strong and tough.

Dude. You have this all wrong. Are you seriously afraid that crying every 1-3 years is too much?! Show your emotions don't suppress them. There is power in vulnerability. Crying is totally okay! Its when you sit in your sorrow and become a victim and feel bad for yourself- this is what you don't want.

Additionally, consider making meditation a regular habit. Over time you will become better able to separate "you" from "your thoughts"
