I think I have a whole lot more good memories than bad memories. When I was real young my best friend drown in a pool. He was a really nice boy and was not mean to the girls and did not make fun of anyone. The last memory was of us hanging out in the pool and than we both stuck our tongues out at each other. He said he was going to go back after the pool closed and go swimming some more for me to meet him back there. I told him no. Wait until tomorrow and we can go back. I told my parents when they came home what he was going to do and he was already gone when his parents checked his room. He had went back to the pool and he was on the bottom of the pool. He was gone. I felt so bad and guilty for a long time. I will never forget my friend.

@jstory07 that is good! I do have bad memories, but I can just remember them as facts, without any emotional upsets. I guess it's my brain doing the protective filtering. Consequently I do have more good memories than bad
