Does anyone else cry when one watches something so wonderful that the emotions come out... And one just cries!

My Dad would often tell me off for this. I should be a man. (Most if the time I was a child when he said this!) He had been brought up to believe it was a sign of weakness.
But, I find that I sometimes cry when I see something so amazing that I can't contain my emotions!

I have just seen this.

It is amazing. Some of the more unusual scenes witnessed on the Ffestiniog Railway in North Wales, U.K. I :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: things like this! :heart: I don't know why. I just do!

I also find that I just can't listen to certain types of music without crying.

Is this normal? Why don't others cry wit the same things? Why do I need to run off to cry or try to hide my emotions to "Fit in"? Am I more emotional then the average person?

I think this is "normal"----especially amongst people of an artistic, creative bent.

Is it also an autistic thing? Or is it that most people having an arty type of character do this?

It's more an "artistic" than an "autistic" thing, in my opinion.

Can one be artistic without being that good at art? I could be good to my own style of art. I dropped art as a subject because I was not that great compared to the excellent tallent that others have. I enjoyed art though, but I like to do my own style.

If my model trains are described as artistic, then I am very artistic. I totally have my own style.
I need to practice 2D art though. I can do 3D art as in kodel railways and things. 2D art... I need practice.

I can only draw at the level of a primary school student----yet I believe I am "artistic."

I'm probably more "artistic" in my writing than anything else.

"Art" covers much more than just visual arts.

Uhmmm. Yes. Artistic... So my trains which are quite individually unique (Even though some start off as kits) are artistic. Like the one in the picture near my username.

I would agree that trains are, at least, sometimes "artistic" in an aesthetic sense.

What I mean by "aesthetic"---is that they look good. Some trains don't look good, though.

But, since you make an effort to create trains that look good and function well, I would say that you are "artistic" and make use of "aesthetics" as far as trains are concerned.

My aim is to have a prototypical feel but alter things to make them look attractive. I refrain from adding too much of the little details as I want a basic and chuncky feel to them.

Some of the most beautiful things, in general, are prototypical things that have been creatively enhanced.

Shakespeare comes to mind. Most of his plays were done by somebody else (from some prototype)---but he attached his own unique twist to these prototypal plays.

Sorry for over-intellectualizing LOL

A beautiful scene is beautiful----there doesn't have to be much more of a reason for this than that.

No worries. I was distracted as we have a house full of people... But I have a bit of anxiety starting so I have come up to my bedroom to relax.

Just try to think about those scenes while you're anxious.

Sometimes, I think about scenes. Sometimes, I think about songs.

I try not to think. It is hard not to think, but when stressed and anxious which is the start of a partial shutdown for me, so if I try and think while my brain is shutting down, I will be likely to get a deep shutdown... Is why I get soo wound up if people ask me things when I am shutting down.

I do when watching a movie or TV show.

It's normal and some people are just emotional.
