Does Anyone Else Have This?

I didn't exactly know where to put this topic, so I'll just put it here because it seems right.

Anyone ever just get very vivid memories or thoughts of past events randomly?
Like, I'll just be sitting in my chair listening to music and talking to friends and then I'll get this weird shock feeling in my head and sit and think of a random past event like me asking my ex girlfriend out or my parent's telling me they are getting separated.

I don't really get sad about it anymore, it just happens out of no where and then I let it go but it's just sort of weird. I would think it's some sort of PTSD but I always thought PTSD would be serious flashbacks where it actually seems like you're back in that situation. Not just sitting still and very vividly remembering a moment.

Anyone else have this or anyone know what this is? I'm going to ask on a few forums.

Yeah, happens to me all the time. I'll often remember past events I hadn't thought much about and be surprised that I retained so many details. It's happened often enough that it doesn't bother me; then again, I don't mind getting lost in thought.

It seems to be happening more than once daily now and I've just gotten used to it too but I've just been wondering lately what it could be. Normally it seems like happy memories that turned sad or just memories that are or were seen as sad. I don't really get that sad anymore so I don't really care about them that much but still. Strange. I've become lost in thought before, I used to a lot especially while it's quiet or in class but I don't do it that much anymore.

So this only happens with sad memories?

I get this a lot with extremely embarrassing memories. None of which I will share, obviously.

Seems like it. I just sort of forget what I thought about minutes after it happening now because I'm so used to it but from the ones I remember, just stuff that turned sad or was sad.

My "past" memories serve either as information files and/or to be analyzed. Only time a memory is emotionally effectful is when I wish it so(for whatever reason I'm looking to experience such an emotion for).

No sense in dwelling excessively on the past, the future awaits.

I'd say this does happen on occasion. More often than not the memories can be distressing, but often I get a massive "deja vu" as well. Sometimes a specific thing, even a tiny detail, can spark some nostalgia.

Heh.... a lot of "flashbacks" I get tend to be from the late 90s to the early to mid 2000s (AKA my childhood). Sometimes they're real and sometimes they're rather fictional. Hell, I can picture myself and other people I know in situations in different time periods (for whatever reason, I used to "make up" memories" of myself in 1992, probably because of GTA: San Andreas).
