The Life Of My Memories

BedtimeMemories are beautiful creatures in our mind. My head is full with them. I like to think that every single one of my memories is a person that lives in this big city called my brain. Such as a real person they grow, change and die after a while. Some die at a way too young age but that is life.

I was lucky to be able to create a lot of memories in one year and now I feel like I have to take care of them or I will loose them all. Do you get what I mean? A couple months ago I read an article about how easy the human brain can get manipulated but I don’t want to get to deep into that topic. In the article it said that every time we talk about a memory or think about it we change it a little bit and that is the part that scares me.

How am I supposed to know which one of my memories will be true when I am older? I don’t want my memories to change or even fade away. I want them to stay the person they are. I want to remember everything the same way it happened. The good things and the bad things. Sure I have pictures and I wrote a lot of things down but  I love my memories as the person they were born as. They are perfect the way they were made. Even the bad ones because they made me who I am too.  And what will happen with all those little memories I didn’t write down? Every day I loose more of them. Every day I loose such a big part of me.

Lots of Love

  1. I loved this post. You are a very inspirational writer and a great writer over all.
    I hope memories won’t slip away. Maybe you can associate a memory with an object so whenever you look at that object you remember the memory.
    Or maybe you can make a notebook where you just fill with all the memories.

  2. This is so accurate, and something I’ve worried about waaaayyy too much! I definitely have some ‘memories’ and I’m not certain whether they actually happened or my mind made them up. I started a diary/journal last year because I was too afraid of losing some of my memories, and I want to document all my feelings and happy moments for the future.

  3. You WILL remember them. In your own way, you WILL remember them, in the recesses of your mind when they’ve faded. But they’ll never fade completely. Memory’s like a sea – you get new waves, but the others are held in the water.

  4. Actually, they say even auto-biographies are fictional because it’s only one account of a person. And people could have different perspectives on the same event that happened to that specific person. I agree with you. And yes, sometimes the brain creates memories that didn’t even exist just by looking at a childhood picture. Isn’t that crazy? By the way, I LOVE your blog. It always has something interesting to read and think about. Please keep up the good work.

  5. this is actually such a scary thought…that our memories could be manipulated versions of the truth but we would never know…wow…I hope I’ll be able to treasure my memories for as long as possible 🙂
    (also, I’m so sorry for pointing this out but ‘lose’ only has one ‘o’ – sorry it’s just making me feel really uncomfortable😁)
