Come closer, and let me lay this wisdom down on you…
*whispers* Don’t fuggedaboutit.
If they were jerks to you and left you in the lurch when you needed them the most, isn’t the best thing to do is just forget them, even though you can’t because they’re all you think about and you seethe with resentment and anguish and you plumb the depths of your emo soul, where your every thought is “How could you do this to meeeeeeee?”
You wish there was a memory deleting service like in “Eternal Sunshine” and you’d delete that motherf*cker right outta your mind…Am I right?
Well, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but… You can’t. You won’t.
Nor should you wish to.
Your memories and experiences, both good and bad, are what makes you, well, you.
Deliberately suppressing a chunk of your memories is a bit like deliberately going to prison because they help you get your GED while you are in there: Sounds like a workable plan, and is absolutely stupid in practice.
Remember where you come from because it affects where you are going. Mi’iwi.
