Where do the memories go?

03 08 2011

I don’t like reminiscing.

I like moving on.

When I graduated from High School, there were a lot of memories there, but I never looked back.

Same thing with Uni days. It’s so rare for me to bring up a certain happy memory into a conversation.

Kamen with relationships. When they’re over, I lock the door and throw away the key.

When I know a close friend of mine is gonna travel, I start building this shield around me, and it’s done wonders.

I guess I always thought it hurts less when you don’t think of the past. When you don’t think of what has happened and who has happened.

But I donno.

Where do all the memories go? Can we really put everything in a box and keep it far far away?

The morning strawberry kisses while cuddling in bed. 2011.

The picnics we had as a family. 1997.

What I felt after watching the best movie of all time. Ever. 1998.

My first kiss. 2007.

    Memories don’t go anywhere dear BB, it is always there in our minds but the problem is that we do not want to confess that they are still there 😦

    no matter how we move away memories, they always come back and haunt us.

    I tend to do the same as you. I have a small box in my head where i store all the memories and keep them safely locked down. But guess what? The key to opening that little box is alcohol! So whenever i indulge in a little (Well… a lot!) of vodka or tequila, that’s when the memories burst out and run loose!! And that’s not a pretty picture!!! So my advise is to deal with emotions rather than suppress them… Cause they will find a way to get out! The sneaky bastards! 🙂
