Do you wish that certain memories, days or people could be erased from your mind overnight like in the movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind? I do. Sometimes I think memories can just be too painful whether they’re good or bad. The bad memories are painful for obvious reasons–they hurt. But the good memories, those are painful because they remind you of what could have been. The life you could have had. The happiness you could have experienced. Sometimes I wish I could just forget it all. As if it never happened. Real life would be so much easier.
“By morning, you’ll be gone.” -Jim Carrey as Joel Barish in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. 2004.
