    When all those ****** memories come flooding

    back and you can't stop crying because they are all you can think of. And they just stay there, ******* with your head. They will always be there. They never go away, ******* with your mind. Flash backs, nightmares, unable to sleep at night, suddenly crying and not being able...

    When Will I Let It Go?

    I still have resentment. I don't miss him. I don't want him back. I am positive that I made the right decision. It's the flashbacks of all the terrible fights. The awful feelings of dread. The sick feeling in my stomach when he lied. He turned into a monster when he was mad. He...

    Chasing Them Away

    They aren't all bad but some I don't want reminded of. They hurt to bad even if they are good memories.

    I just want to forget all those memories

    and finally move on. If there's any short cut to this I will take it.

    They Made Me

    No I do not want the bad memories go away, They made me who I am today, I like to remember to know where I came from, To evaluate myself from then to now... To understand and go over my weakness and strengths... From then to now... And how I overcome my weaknesses, They are scars...

    Do the flashbacks ever leave?

    That's the one problem I still have from my previous relationship. I hear, see, smell, or taste something that reminds me of it all and then, it's like I'm there again, and I feel all the pain I felt and all the disgrace and the humiliation. I'm happy now, but these flashbacks...

    Having a memory like mine is sort of a gift I

    guess, but when you remember all the big **** ups in vivid detail it doesn't make for a good time. My ocd also helps with me obsessing over every detail for every mistake for hours at a time, judging myself for everything I've ever done. Never being to shake the thought that...

    And Yet . . .

    I don't like dwelling on bad memories as much as anyone else, but I still need to learn from them. Otherwise, I might make the same mistakes over again.

    I hate this. I struggle with depression

    but I don't have any medicine because I know I'm strong enough. But I'm not. I try to make it all better but the memories knock me down. The constant screaming in my head. The flash backs. The blown up relationships. My constant isolation. My anorexia problem. I'm nothing but...

    But they never really fade,

    do they? Everything I want to forget I remember, and everything I need to remember, I forget. The memories never actually go away, the nightmares never actually cease...they only slow down. Which is okay, but the problem is that every day is just another bad memory.

    You can lock them away

    but you know it's always there, unable to escape the past. So many ways to tell it. But what's the point when all your doing is awaking it from its slumber. Best to just move on and try not to think about it.

    I have a bad memory that happened

    when I was a kid. I still remember when mom left me at home with a maid to work. The maid was nursing me harshly. I still remember the taste watered by very cold water. I also still remember the feeling when my back was hit by a broom stick, the scar is still there to this day...

    If you think about it,

    to have the unwanted memories removed would be great. No more instances when you remember something awful and all the hurt and fear comes rushing back in again. ....or would having them removed mean that we might fail to appreciate the little moments we have?
