Selective Memory

It’s easy to forget things.
I should know, considering how I forget where I keep my post-its. Sigh.
It’s so easy to let things just slip out of your mind. To let other things, other moments occupy that space. It’s simple really.
It’s easy to forget. Easier to make newer memories.

We’re humans. We forget birthdays. We forget to buy things. We lose our lists. We forget the time. We forget to call people.
And sometimes we forget who we are.

And that’s all okay. Because you will always remember something else in return. That balance will remain.
And if you forget who you are, you’ll find yourself again, or someone will always be around to help you. To teach you how to walk all over again. To remind you of who you were and what you believed in.

And even if that doesn’t happen, then maybe you’ll simply just change for the better. Because change is the only constant right?

So forgetting things- that’s okay. It’s easy. Simple.
What happens when you can’t?

We've all got memories we'd like to forget. Things we wish had never happened. Words we wish we'd never said. So what do you do when you can't forget?
