Some people are really sensitive to the world. My mother cries at pretty much everything. She cries when she sees birds nuzzling in their nests. She cries when she sees a spider get eaten. She cries when it rains. Sometimes, she cries because the world is "just too beautiful" and other times because it's "just so cruel." I'm never sure if she's crying because she's happy or sad or just generally overwhelmed, and it seems like the wife of is the same way.
"My wife cries at absolutely anything. I mean, ANYTHING. So I started writing the reasons down because reasons," the user wrote, over a photo of list of things that make his wife cry.
Some of them are really funny ("She found out swans can be gay and thought it was really nice"). Some of them are totally logical ("I waited until it was dark and pretended to be the Babadook"). Some of them are a bit random ("The fluffy bunny escaped from an arctic fox in a documentary"). And others are completely relatable ("She was hungover and saw a picture of a piglet.")
Also, if you don't cry because there aren't any more biscuits in the house, you're pretty much dead inside.
Update 11/23, 6:44 p.m.: Cosmopolitan.com has identified the original poster and his wife. They are Alexandra (31) and Aaron Gillies (28), a and comedy writer based in London. The two are completely overwhelmed by the Internet's response, especially from all the people saying that they completely relate to the story.
"A lot of people have accused her of being pregnant or having emotional problems but the thing is she is just a sensitive soul," Aaron . "She's quite fantastically sweet like that. I don't think she ever thought the world would be worrying about why she randomly cries at everything."
Aaron also listed a few more things that made her cry, including "I bought her favorite ice cream when she was hungover, I touched her head whilst walking down the street and she thought it was a bird, and someone hid in and then jumped out of a box at her when she was moving house." And, of course, the replies to this post.
