Both - strong emotions, whether good or bad, can last a whole lifetime, I think.


Although you might try to force yourself to forget the bad ones, and may be successful to an extent.
Also, it might happen more naturally in the case of bad memories. That's why they say - time is the best healer.

Anyway, won't new memories replace old ones?

i agree! Ouch sometimes we want to forget something soo badly, but we can't b/c of the emotional memory attached to it.

There are many types of bad memories and some of these go away when we learn to accept, forgive, extract revenge, pray or take certain other steps. Yes time heals too and sometimes we see things in better light.

I don't know - they haven't yet. If they ever do, I'll let you know. But I don't think memories ever replace each other. Our priorities change over time, so the significance of different memories also changes. But I don't think that ever means that we lose a memory dear to us or replace it with another one.

Tulip, stop trying to forget things or lose memories. Keep them with you and when you're feeling down, remember those moments and help yourself realize how good you have it now as opposed to back then. Even memories that trigger painful emotions can come in handy sometimes. :)

I don't think you can - I've stopped trying. They've become a part of me now, I guess its just a process of accepting reality and making yourself realize that you can't change the past. I don't think you can ever intentionally "forget" something.
