What are the things we cannot forget?

There are certain memories we’ll never be able to forget or we won’t allow our minds to forget. The memories we make on purpose are what we cannot or will not forget. We can never forgive those who cheat us. Cheating is something that we cannot tolerate at all and it hurts a lot.  No matter how much we want to forget it, it will come to our minds with more clarity. Our lives may have been filled with people who hurt us and cheated us. But there is nothing more stupid than remembering all that. 

How to forget what we don’t need

  • Stay away from opportunities that lead to bad memories of the past.
  • There may be some memories that constantly haunt the mind, remember some good parts of it more.
  • Clear mind from time to time.
  • Control the mind that goes back to the past.
  • Practice meditation, yoga, etc., and make the mind more focused.
  • Try to turn negative experiences into positive ones.
  • If there is a place or situation that you once feared a lot, revisit it with a favorite person or friend.
  • Create new experiences and moments that move old memories from our minds or brain.
  • Our brain takes in a lot of things.
  • Everything that is needed and what is not needed stays there.
  • It is up to us to decide what remains of us.
  • We should learn to erase the bad things without erasing the good ones.

Why are we cheated?

Have you ever wondered why we are cheated? Those who cheated on us may have a reason. A reason that the cheated cannot understand. Both may have their own justifications. There will be people to stand by and justify both sides. Understand that cheating is a perversion of the human mind.  if we can understand it, we should not try to correct others but correct ourselves.  But how? Isn’t that the question that came to mind now? Be careful that we don’t give a second chance to the other person an opportunity to be a cheater. We were deceived because we allowed ourselves to be deceived. The reason for that is the excessive trust we place in some people.

It is somewhat difficult to understand what is in the minds of human beings. In our lives, we may have given a place in our minds to some people and it will be very difficult to accept it when it is damaged. We should be able to recognize those in front of us just as we know that fire burns when touched, chili is hot and sugar is sweet. The mind should be matured to distinguish between good and evil. It is only possible if we look at any event and any person from different angles.

Along with many other problems, forgetfulness is common as we age

Something must be forgotten

Forget what needs to be forgotten and remember what needs to be remembered. If what is to be forgotten is sorrow, never try to remember it. If it is a pleasure to remember, never try to forget it. It would be good to get used to this kind of attitude. No one else can think for us. our attitude is in our control. The relevance of the views we see will be like our attitude. Any person can change his life drastically by changing his attitude if he is willing to do so.

Our mistakes will haunt us

Sometimes our mistakes will haunt us. This is also a pain that we want to forget. To make mistakes is human. In other words, one person’s mistake can be another person’s right. Do not bemoan that a mistake has been made. That mistake should be to make sure that such a mistake does not happen again.   It is a good sign if you are hurting over the mistakes you have made. Here to consider is the situation that led to the error. Some may be completely unexpected. But whatever happens, there is a reason for it. Identify what that reason was. The situation and people who caused the wrongdoing are worse than the situation where the wrong was done. Whatever misery or tragedy happens in life, it should not drag us down until the end of life, but it should lead us forward. If you want to move forward like that, you have to forget some things. Having the determination not to repeat the mistakes done and the openness to forgive those who have done them will be beneficial to a great extent.

Then what should be remembered?

Every experience is a lesson in life. What experiences each of us has had? Is it only sorrows? There are many happy experiences also. Some things must be remembered and others must be forgotten. We should learn to live by forgetting all the things that need to be forgotten and remembering the things that bring joy to the mind. What should be remembered is not the intensity of the pains of the past and the fear it brings, but our weaknesses that caused the pain. A firm pledge not to repeat the same mistakes should also be remembered. Forgetfulness is a blessing. Forget it, forget it somehow. Some things hurt the mind, and some things are unnecessary, just forget them. 

Don’t start your day with yesterday’s troubles. Avoid bringing yesterday’s sorrows into today. Every day is a new beginning.  There is a fresh start every day. We should consider every day we wake up as the first day of our lives. In our journey ahead, we should not look back at the pains on the way we came, but on the good things we got along the way, we should also remember those who caused it. If we are sad about the past now in the present, we will be sad again in the future. Because in the future this present will become our past.
