Have you ever been watching a movie and it triggered some old memories. Hubby and I were watching some old Andy Griffiths movies tonight, and it triggered some painful memories and the next thing I know, tears were rolling. They usually make me laught, but tonight was different.

When I watch movies about children losing their parents. I lost mine at a very young age.

That would be painful, I guess they say tears are healing.

Aparently I haven't dealt with this one, or it probably wouldn't have hit me so hard.

@lilnana1111 They say time heals but in my cases I found that acceptance paid a large role. Take care.

I've experienced that sort of thing myself a time or two. Not fun at all.

It's not bad when it's a good memory, but those sad ones are hard.

@lilnana1111 Yeah, usually the old classic movies trigger the memories. I always get emotional. Don't tell me homies....

It is surprising sometimes just what can trigger sad - or happy - memories. Sometimes it is sight or sound but I find often a smell will bring back memories.
