This is a touchy topic for so many people, so I figure I’ll just leave it at: everyone has their own right to their beliefs and as long as you don’t push it down mine or anyone else’s throats then believe what you will and I’ll stick to just believing in something greater than myself.
You know what I realized? People keep saying that they’d do or love something/someone because of and when the going gets tough, they get going. But why don’t we learn to do/love in spite of?
So instead of doing and loving because of:
We do and love in spite of all that and learn how to get through the difficult situations so that the happy memories last longer and mean more to us.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to forget all the bad stuff that happened to you? I do sometimes but not as much as before. I used to think it would be amazing to forget it all, until I read this novel called Before I go to Sleep, S.J. Watson’s début novel. It’s about this woman named Christine who losses her memory every time she went to sleep. It’s a novel that kept me invested in its characters and it made me keep reading until I got to the very last word.
So what if you lost your memories every night before you went to sleep? Or even if you lost them forever? Would you be happy about it? What would you do?
I know if I lost my memories I wouldn’t be who I am today because the good and the bad experiences helped mould me into this hard-headed, dedicated, hard-working daydreamer I am today. I treasure every second I have and continue to experience because it makes me be the way I am. I used to wish hard that I would forget, but as I’ve grown older, I’ve realized that every moment I’ve experienced is something worth remembering because it means you’ve gone through the roller coaster that is life.
But that’s just me. What do you think? Tell me in the comments! I’d love to hear from you!
