Why do I continually watch movies or TV shows that make me cry??? I just can't help myself. Here is a sampling of said programs....
I watch this show several times a week....and I cry almost every time I watch it. The reason I keep doing this to myself? It reminds me that no matter how bad I think my problems are, there are LOTS of people who have it a lot worse than I do.
You know it, you love it. It's Steel Magnolias - the quintessential chick flick. This has been one of my favorite movies since I was in high school. I have probably seen it 100 times. Can I recite lines from the movie? Sure. Do I know very well what is going to happen at the end? Yes. Do I still cry EVERY SINGLE TIME? Absolutely.
Another chick flick? Check. Another movie I've seen hundreds of times? Check. A movie I cry at every time I see it? Check.
A side note: I also have a hard time turning off programs that make me scared. Inevitably, I will be flipping through the channels and I end up stopping on some show about the paranormal...typically at night when I am home alone and right before I go to bed. Good call.
