I think it’s a little of each. It would be wonderful to remember all beautiful and joyful events from our lives. People without Jill’s ability can only feel something similar while, for example, reviewing family albums, but it’s still not the same as her reliving the memories, „travelling”, as she called it. That being said, I can’t imagine how terrible „travelling” to the bad memories must be, especially when they’re connected with strong negative emotions. In my life I had an experience than showed me how strongly our emotions are connected with our memory, so I can imagine how difficult it must be for Jill to feel this every day.
