All of those evenings of watching “Evening” and crying like a baby have made me a happier person! Rock on! I have known it all along ever since I started watching Terms of Endearment in sixth grade and Legends of the Fall in high school. And now I have been vindicated with the study in Can Watching Sad Movies Make you Happier?
I love this study! Jon can no longer complain when I come up to bed at midnight with bloodshot eyes and ruddy nose and dried up tears. It is only making me happier. So, ladies, get out those DVDs of Out of Africa, the Notebook, and Dead Man Walking, and shed those tears in order to bust out that smile later.
