A Secret Trick: How To Instantly Stop Yourself From Crying When You Feel Like Bursting Into Tears: Smitten: glamour.com.

Yesterday, my friend told me about a recent fight she’d had with her boyfriend. “I lost all credibility because I burst into tears,” she said, “I hate crying during fights, but I can’t help it.” I totally understood. For years, I would feel my chin start to wobble when my (scary) former boss yelled at me, and, all through my childhood, when in arguments with my parents, I would have to say, “I’m really serious about this, even though I’m crying! Ignore the tears!”

But then, my dears, I discovered the BEST trick that literally stops you from bursting into tears during those ill-timed moments. Revealed after the jump…

This is all you have to do:

When you feel like you’re going to lose it, pinch that little bit of skin between your thumb and pointer finger. Pinch it hard.

That’s it.

Seriously.

It will magically stop you from crying every time.

Let me know what you think — and report back when you use this secret trick! And tell me….Have you ever cried at an embarrassing or unfortunate time? Do you find it hard to hold back the tears when you’re in a big argument? Do the men in your life ever cry during fights? (They seem to never break down!)

  1. Recently I burst into tears at work and it opened a floodgate of sobbing that I couldn’t close again. It was very embarrassing and very hard to stop once started. I will try this trick the next time I feel that bottom lip start to quiver.
