It’s emotional disregulation, it’s harder for us to control our emotions, we FEEL things more deeply.
It’s why I’m picky about what movies I watch and whether I have to watch them at home alone.
Example, thankfully I was alone watching an anime, because they mislabeled it, it was labeled comedy, when it should have been comedy/drama.
Within the first twenty minutes I was sobbing, near uncontrollably, the main protagonist was being severely abused and later abandoned by her mother.
As a victim of abuse, this hit WAY to close to home, many of the things that make me very emotional are similar to my own experiences.
