Since dreams usually reveal the exact opposite of what you believe to be true about yourself, dreams of crying or seeing someone crying is showing the emotion of sadness in its unexpressed form within you. The dream symbolism may be such that it would not normally bring you to tears, and yet, you awaken somewhat sad or perplexed. This is the psyche’s way of exploring unrecognized feelings or pain. Another character crying portrays unacknowledged suffering in terms of the characteristics that you associate with them. Consider whether there is in fact something that you are not facing because you are keeping a "stiff upper lip" about it.
