Sometimes forgetting helps and makes us happyHuman memory is very powerful and we can remember many things depending on their importance in our life. As we can not remember everything only selective things will remain in our memory and others will fade away with time.
Fading away of memory items is in a way a boon to us so that we can forget the unimportant and insignificant things periodically. Suppose we fought with a person and soon we forget it and next time we meet that person we have no malice in our mind. Another example is that if we had some serious grief but with time the scar in our mind is healed up. Now we are free from it and there is no sadness or pain.
In essence, forgetting to that extent is beneficial for us and makes our life pleasant. What is your opinion on this?
