Say you're thinking of something sad, and you don't really cry, but your eyes water a bit. Do you consider that crying?
You're sad, your eyes are watering. It's crying. It's not sobbing, but it's crying.
I guess, but it's easy to recover from, so it's easy to say it's not crying.
No, crying is when your eyes get red, your nose runs and your breathing is labored.
I have an opinion which is not mentioned here.
