me-mento

I read an article that told me that the way we remember things is very likely remembered incorrectly. Therefore can’t we rewrite those memories?

This is important news-I have too many memories that keep me stuck. Unless there was a camera or a recording-our past is up for revision.

Perhaps the words that trip us up now were innocuous just spoken at a pivotal time. Or we remember them to be bigger, much bigger in rear view.

Is hindsight 20/20 if we need new glasses?
