🥹Meaning and Description

A yellow face with big puppy-dog eyes holding tears and a slight frown, as if very aggrieved, yet the mouth is trying to keep a smile. This emoji looks similar to 🥺, but the meaning and usage of the two emoji are not the same.

This emoji can be used to convey positive emotions. Picture someone sharing the news of their child getting into Harvard🏫. Amidst the pride and joy, there's a tinge of overwhelming emotion, perfectly captured by 🥹. Or, imagine watching a heartwarming video of a puppy and feeling a rush of affection💕 so intense, it feels like you're on the brink of tears. Again, 🥹 is the ideal emoji to use. It's also apt for situations where you're holding back tears of gratitude, such as when someone you admire appreciates your work.

But it's not all about the softer emotions. This emoji also shines in expressing resistance or defiance, embodying the spirit of standing strong against adversity while acknowledging the struggle💪. And it can also be used to convey a helpless and sad mood of wanting to cry but having to pretend to be strong and hold back the tears.
