Got kicked out of the holocaust museum. Now I've been labeled as antisemitic.

Thanks OP :/


Embo1 t1_ivhbx8v wrote

Well at least you changed the narrative


implicate t1_ivi0de5 wrote

I just went and laughed in my childhood home's backyard where my dog is buried.

The family that lives there now was not pleased.


Muscalp t1_ivg4mg6 wrote

On my Gramps‘ funeral they played some of the jazz from him and his band and it was so unfittingly cheery that I indeed burst out laughing

I'm laughing in a toilet, it's weirding lots of people out.


FreeMyMen t1_ivh9jo1 wrote

That's a good idea, why not feel joy for your past experiences with someone that has gone?


ocelot08 t1_ivhy5yb wrote

My God, there's narrative all over this place!


Netskimmer t1_ivfv28a wrote

Pro tip, DON'T do this at the holocaust museum...


apizartron t1_iviq2z2 wrote

Do many people actually cry in places like that? Get sad and deep in thought sure, but cry?


tty5 t1_ivj13fl wrote

The one in actual concentration camp has things that you cannot unsee. Once you are standing in front of a massive pile of glasses or artificial limbs taken from the victims you only realize this place was a factory of death, purpose built to exterminate at the highest efficiency and lowest cost. Members of the same species built this recently - some survivors and perpetrators are still alive. ....fuuuuuuck.

Imagine having a personal connection on top of that.

And they send you as a kid and teenager. This stuff is horrifying.


Extension_Buy5963 t1_ivm72gt wrote

My ex-wife just called the police on me because I'm standing on her front porch laughing like a maniac. Do I change the narrative in this way?


KDLGates t1_ivjmitz wrote

I've been to the Washington DC holocaust museum and the one where I live (Tampa, FL), both well organized but I didn't have that "this is where it happened" effect.

I guess it's not really a musem per se if it's at a camp itself (unless it's an attached/new facility), more of a memorial. That's different and it seems like a good idea to keep them preserved.


Netskimmer t1_ivj7dbh wrote

Some do, especially if someone they loved, like grandparent made it through alive.


itsjojothehobo t1_ivjlyoi wrote

Standing on a bridge looking down at a sea of children’s shoes at the holocaust museum. You bet your ass I cried.

I’m sorry, but I’m not laughing at the beginning of Up


ViolentSarcasm t1_ivfpoyj wrote

Yeah I’ll just go laugh beside my friend’s coffin and change that narrative … good intentions but this is a dumb saying


dabomb2012 t1_ivh8tb1 wrote

You absolutely have a point here, but this doesn’t mean that the saying is wrong in all circumstances. It can, and has worked for me (though the reason I cried is nowhere near the pain you experienced - which is why it’s worked for me)


rafael-a t1_ivfshdy wrote

True, same thing would also be very weird to just go to a hospital, hang out there and laugh, very condescending with people there.


ViolentSarcasm t1_ivfty5z wrote

Very true, it’s obvious this quote was written by someone who’s never really had to grieve over the loss of someone close


Febrilinde t1_ivj9lb6 wrote

No, no you don't get. You are going to change the narrative. Go ahead and laugh manically in a hospital or in a funeral it will look like this is something you planned , you will probably go to jail and start laughing there and it will look like that was also something you wanted and planned. People will stay away from you you will be lonely and then you will start laugh at everything, laugh forever because the life is a joke muhahaha... (So yeah he basically wants to create an army of Joker's, by changing the narrative)

uni_t t1_ivghy9l wrote

Go shit in the places you have pissed.

Change the narrative.


AsloModjo t1_ivgnh57 wrote

I did this.

I went through some dark shit. A whole town laced with traumatic memories.

I went back to each place one by one, on my terms, and replaced the meaning of each place with a new,positive memory.

It was awesome and very empowering


chevymonza t1_ivh3ffy wrote

Nice!! It helps to know that the people from your past are mostly gone, buildings get renovated, stores change, etc.

I'm afraid I'd get arrested, why is this middle-aged lady laughing in the junior high school girls' bathroom??!


Not_MrNice t1_ivhk1x1 wrote

Narrative: "I cried in this location"

Changed narrative: "I cried in this location, then came back later and forced myself to laugh."

Lesson: "No fucking clue"


barrelofsandals t1_ivgg59c wrote

The amount of people intentionally being thick-skulled on this is baffling.

Nobody is saying go laugh at suffering or make fun of others' grief. They are saying you can take control of your suffering and you have the power to interact with these feelings and experiences as you see fit. It's about reframing your perspective.


Serfo t1_ivhunda wrote

I think most people get the overall message but chose to go the meme route just because.


reddrighthand t1_ivjl5ua wrote

No, my first thought was this is fuckin' horrible advice.

I'm just supposed to go laugh in the places I used to visit with a person who's no longer here? Without any context other than I miss them like hell, especially there?

No, this has fine intentions it just missed the mark.


riotousviscera t1_ivhbrch wrote

yes!!!! cannot stand how deliberately dense people are being here.

I had a really bad time in junior high. took a lot of abuse from classmates, and school faculty covered it up (at best - at worst they pretty much condoned it). fast forward about 17 years and the building is abandoned. as it happens I am into urbex, so yeah, I actually planned out a visit and managed to enjoy myself there. it was a significant healing experience and I felt much better afterward.

this is definitely something you want to be careful with, though. i had gone there a year prior on a whim, just to see the building, not to go inside. but I saw an open door, went in and just was NOT prepared to be in there... it was a really bad experience that stuck with me until I went back. YMMV.


dontsuckmydick t1_ivj8pta wrote

Did you just express how upset you were that people were taking this literally and then share your story on how you took this literally?


riotousviscera t1_ivvkqy4 wrote

... no? I expressed annoyance at people choosing to be dense regarding the meaning of the saying, and then shared a story about how i did something like that and it helped me.

you are not actually this dumb.


baddiest_reaper t1_ivfuxwv wrote

Instructions unclear, got kicked off my friend's funeral


Autumnlove92 t1_ivg1dlf wrote

For those taking this too literally, it interpretates to: go back to the places with bad memories and try to make good ones.

I get that. I've done it a few times. But some places are also too hard to revisit, and are best left in the past


Mrytle t1_ivgrrc4 wrote

Not sure how the funeral home would react to that really.


NoiseTank0 t1_ivhgnoa wrote

yeah this is just pure vacuous crap.


[deleted] t1_ivga0ba wrote

I hate the word narrative. Who gives a fuck about what other people think about oneself? Everyone's a wannabe clout chaser and so fragile these days

WeirdCreeper t1_ivfz422 wrote

I mean in all places it is normal to laugh where I have cried before I've probably done so sometimes even at the same time mania is one heck of a status effect.

paracog t1_ivhdjam wrote

I spent the second through fourth grade in an abusive boys boarding school; it was later closed by the feds. As an adult, I went back up the valley where it had been located, on a BSA Hornet with a cute blonde on the back, and on the concrete pad where my school room used to be, was a beautiful mountain lion looking at me. That was a good day.


Crumb-eye t1_ivhidg5 wrote

Me at front door of the funeral home: “ah hey, sorry, weird request…”


Accomplished_Pop_279 t1_ivhpj2r wrote

I actually did something like this after my ex broke up with me. After a couple months, I made an effort to go to as many of the places we went to together alone so that I could take away the negative emotions associated with that place. I did it so I wouldn’t have to come back to a place or drive by it one day and get this whole flashback of emotions and forfeit my freedom to do certain things.


SuperNerdAce t1_ivhry0r wrote

Sorry, but it'll look pretty weird for a grown adult walking into a series of schools and laughing


A1pH4W01v t1_ividzxp wrote

Tried that in my old high school

Dont know why my old teachers called the police on me, i was just merely laughing inside the girl's restroom.


SEMlickspo t1_ivig2yr wrote

Laughing alone in the walk in fridge is actually probably worst than being caught crying alone in the walk in fridge.

Either is better than getting caught sleeping or vaping.

What happens in the walk in fridge, should stay in the walk in fridge.
