Memories are good and bad. There are times, events, and people we remember fondly because of the joy experienced. There are also times, events, and people we want to forget because of the negativity experienced.
It would be wonderful if our only memories were positive and fond. However, we know it does not work this way. Memories serve to help us if we learn to do a couple of important steps.
Repeat what works and is successful.
Avoid the consequences experienced and overcome.
If we do so, the future holds greater memories when we recall them.
