My memory is miraculous. I can remember being born and getting meningitis when I was one month old. Maybe you think this is a miraculous memory, but it is very debilitating. My memory is a burden on me for making progress. I can’t forget my past and I meaningfully need to forget. My memory has prevented me from making meaningful changes to my mentality. Meaning I need to leave behind my mentality. Memory has an anchoring effect. My memory is a gift and a curse. I hope to learn to forget the hard times I have had so I can be an optimist about my future again!
