Remembering People-a Blessing Or A Curse?

I have the weird gift of always remembering people. I remember names, faces and stories they tell. Even if they are someone I meet once. Then when I run into them again I say oh yeah hey I remember you. We met last year at this party and you said this. It's creepy and I feel bad, but I would feel like a liar if I pretended. Or if I see people on the street and recognize them from some random interaction I usually smile. It's hard not to. Every person touches me in a weird way. I can't describe it. I'm sincerely affected by my experiences with them, no matter how small. It's also a huge problem with my current break up. I remember everything he ever said. He has conveniently forgotten everything. I couldn't if I tried. So good memories, a blessing or a curse?
