After stopping the movie (Inside Out) twice to get ahold of my emotions, I finally give up. I'm just not mentally tough enough to handle it right now.

But the next movie I put on, ostensibly a comedy, has a pretty potent argument scene in it as well, and I find myself pausing even that to shake off the tension, even though it's played for laughs. I wonder if my inability to handle strong emotions in fiction is a sign of sensitivity, or just a lack of psychological fortitude?
