Bleeding foot-prints in the memory…
I and my friends discuss quite often about how it gets so difficult to overcome emotional wounds, how it seems so impossible to forget your past relationships even when you have moved-on after the break-up, how you keep remembering those hurting words no matter how much you want to forget them, how long-lost thoughts of some bad incidents keep refreshing in your memory out of nowhere. Why is it that even when you want to stop yourself from thinking about something, its thoughts hunt you down and haunt your memory successfully? Why do we always fail to completely eliminate the troubling elements from our minds?? Are we really that weak???
I came up with a simple logic which turned out to be a convincing solution of this mystery. Probably because we touch our computer-keyboards much more than the human-touch in our lives, we tend to understand the functioning of the former better than the latter. And hence we take it granted for our memory to function the way the computer does. Anyways, so my logic says that the reason to this inability of human beings to forget unwanted things completely is:
“We are human beings and not computers. And there is no ‘Shift+Delete’ in humans!!”
[P.S.: For those who don’t know what ‘Shift+Delete’ is, I have a solution for you too:
Open the C drive of your computer, then press ‘Ctrl’ and ‘A’ simultaneously, after that press ‘Shift’ and ‘Delete’ simultaneously, and then finally press ‘Enter’]
