Memories serve its purpose in our survival. The good ones keep us happy and motivated to carry on with our lives. The bad one constantly reminds us to stay away from the danger that we once encountered.
However, holding on to too much memories can be detrimental to us. It slows us down and may even stop us from moving forward in life. They may also become an emotional baggage that causes us fatigue.
Memories may be in physical forms such a photographs, certain songs that may trigger a past experience, letters and cards, clothes, journals, and even relationships.
Memories can also be in their mental forms of images in our mind.
It is important to realize the importance of letting go of our memories, especially those which aren’t serving us well anymore.
