Is there anything good that comes from forgetting?
I think forgetting the past a little can be okay. If we remember constantly, we get stuck in the memories from the past. It would be more difficult to create a new life, new memories. We can’t start over if we don’t forget a little bit. We probably can’t forget completely. However, we can start over again everyday and make a life that is closer to what we want.
Do you think butterflies remember life before becoming a butterfly? I’d like to think they just say “Forget that stuff. I’m a butterfly. Look at how awesome I am now.” Life is good. Remember that it can be good and forget the rest.
