If I had to describe what kind of memory I possess, I would have to say that I remember things as though I was taking a photograph. And while in many instances, this particular trait has been useful, all too often, it has been detrimental, at best.
I am particularly hard on myself, especially when I feel I have not acted as I thought I should. And when analyzing, I have found that I replay the same thing, over and over, picking apart every action, every word.
And it is not helpful.
Because, some things are meant to be left in the past.
To be left alone.
To remain a distant memory.
To be remembered only as a warning.
Not a constantly replayed mistake.
That destroys every shred of self confidence, self worth...the best of you.
So sometimes, you need some courage to break away from bad habits. To try something new and hope the outcomes are better than what you are used to .
And that breaking free of those chains that bind us, can lead us to happiness.
Sometimes, it' not nice to rewind, regardless of what Blockbuster Video will have you believe.
