I'm the same as you, hang on to the good memories and let the bad ones go. It's not always easy to do the second one but it's important - holding on to bad memories only eats away at you and causes you to miss a lot of good memories.

I am also like you and I think most of us may be more like you. I like to remember the good days and good happenings of my life often and relish those memories but I never remember the unwanted happenings happened to my life. The happy and good memories bring joy, happiness and smile for me so I like to keep them for ever.

I have good memory also, I do not forget anything good or bad. Past happening of life see me ways for future and teach me to avoid further bad.

It feels good to go back and reminisces good memories specially the first time i fall in love, first GF, how i wish we can talk again but i think past is past, maybe we are not meant for each other. Yes of course we have to forget sad or bad memories, but sometimes they came back, well bad memories can teach us lesson in life. How about you what are your good memories? I know you have. Never mind the sad or bad.

My dear friend,I think memories are such a thing that we cant forget,wether it is good or bad.We try to forget the bad one but I think it is not possible.The more we try to forget the more it play in our brain.I think I might have forgetten the good memories but bad================the more we say ew forget the more it is in our mind.

Yes, you are right happy memories must always be remembered and I also do the same keep happy and encouraging memories in mind. But...I am such a sensitive fellow, however hard I try...I cannot wash off bad memories from my mind, they also get parmently stored in my mind. But when I am sad, down and out...I always country my blessing and remember my happy moments. Good Post!

Hi lynboobsy11! I do keep good and happy memories close to my heart and always play them back in my mind especially when I am relaxing. As for the bad memories, I keep them too so it will remind me of the mistakes and lessons learned so as not experience it again but I don't usually play them in my mind everytime. But there are however bad memories that I rather forget. Take care and have a nice day!

I think everybody tries to forgot bad memories of there past but it is impossible to completely erase your memories from your mind so least you can do is divert your attention when those memories about to arise in your mind .......
