I remember when my daughters loved to spend hours watching their movies on DVD over and over again.
They actually watched the same movie two or three times in a row. They had a whole collection of different titles for children and they loved them all.
Each girl had their favourite, and those I had to watch with them sometimes until I could repeat every line of every character by heart.
Fortunately, once they had watched those movies a trillion times, new ones came out and then they moved to the new stories.
Nowadays they have grown up a little, and they no longer watch one movie several times in a day. (well… not very often anyway).
They say that old habits are hard to brake, probably, that is why we do the same with our mistakes and tragedies.
Sometimes it seems as if we enjoyed replaying them over and over again. We keep going through the same mental images several times for months and even years.
You know what that triggers, right?
