If I could delete a memory I’m not sure that I would. Like pieces of a puzzle, all of our memories are integral components towards our emotional, spiritual, and intellectual growth. Those fragmented and composite bits and pieces have shaped and molded the people that we were and the people we are to become. Over the years I’ve often found myself digressing (just a little) and reflecting on some of the more painful or distressing memories that have punctuated my life. However as I’ve matured I’ve come to realize that the life events which incurred those memories have only served to make me that much better and stronger.
