Lost Memories


Recommended Posts

I've noticed that, as I get older, I keep forgetting things from my past. Old friends and family often tell me stories from my past that I have no recollection of. I'd swear they never happened but now I'm beginning to wonder. It seems the older I get, the more I forget. What's the best way to hold onto my memories?

Sad...I would say keep talking with old friends and family.  Think of milestone moments in your life and try to remember details. And, of course photos and old videos or super 8 movies.  If you happen to be someone who journaled  (I'm not but wish I had) you would have a library of memories...never too late to start!

Hey Tricky . . .

It happens to all of us. I don't care how sharp you are, that just happens as you get older.

I hate anything that reminds me that I'm getting older. I was relieved a little when a medical expert (who I really admire for a lot of reasons besides his profession) shared his medical perspective on this matter.

It's also important to remember that everyone has different things that solidify as memories. My sister and I could tell stories of two totally different childhoods! The things that stood out to my sister didn't always stand out to me and vice versa!

Same here! When my parents were alive, it amazed me how differently they remembered things that happened to me than I did. Chances are they were mostly right, but I guess we will never know!
