Last night, while I was out trying to change my somewhat depressed mood, a thought just occurred to me… The complexity of memory!
“As I run in the doors of my mind,
I find painful memories attacking me from ahead and behind…”
It is so true how one memory door opens another… You are sitting there and suddenly something triggers one memory… Whether it is painful or not, this memory, when you let yourself think about it long enough, will automatically remind you of another similar one… This is similar to the ripple effect, only not in a liquid matter, yet through your mental thoughts!
This is an amazing phenomenon, yet it remains exhausting, especially if you retain a series of sad or painful memories! Once you have opened one door, the others are opened too and you need more time to close them again and go back to living the present….
