being moved or touched

Even though I find myself often trying to remain stoic around people, though usually just in the case of feeling sadness, I know that I feel moved and touched by more things and much more easily than I ever let on to people.

For instance, I went to a wedding some years back of one of my husband's work colleagues, a woman I knew and liked a lot. During the wedding I started crying, though not because of the woman's getting married per se. I was crying because I felt so moved by the couple's parents: I was moved by how happy and proud they looked.
