I Want The Bad Memories To Go Away

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 566 People

    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?

    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...

    Boiling a pan of water may seem like the most

    innocuous activity and in fact it's something I do every day but there is the rush of bad memories that came from that. Sometimes I place my hand above the pot and get as close as I can before the hot steam of the air burns enough to make me pull my hand immediately away. It's...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
