Quote: Originally posted by UntoldStories113I thought the relatability thing was obvious? Sure, there are probably very few people who've had the exact same thing happen to them that Riley went through - but haven't we all felt ourselves change at some point? Haven't you ever looked back on something in melancholy and asked yourselves, "wow, I used to do that all the time, I used to love it, it was everything to me, why don't I do it anymore?" Haven't you ever missed a part of yourselves that's now gone?
When I was talking about relatability, I was referring to her only memories being angry, disgusted, and fearful for a short time with no happy or sad memories/experiences. Everyone growing up has had a tantrum or mood swing, but what happened with Riley was one of a kind. And then once Joy and Sadness get back to Headquarters, things aren't that different from the way they were before. Sure there are the mixed memories, but Joy says, "Riley is twelve now... What could go wrong?" implying that things are good and better now. I know that there is some teasing for her emotional teenage years in there, but as of now, she is back to normal.
As far as something I used to do that was everything to me, I have not. Have I felt sentimental and nostalgic about things? Of course, loads of times. But I never had a hobby that I forgot about. What is yours?
