The forgotten benefits of a ‘bad’ memory

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Memory is the essence of our psychological functioning, essential for every move we make – getting dressed, having breakfast, driving to work, doing a crossword, making a cup of tea. Nothing we do in our conscious daily lives does not require memory.

So, given our reliance on it, why is it that memory sometimes – or often – lets us down? And is this something to be concerned about, or might it actually be healthy?

or blissfully remembering a foreign holiday several years ago without any memory of the incident at the airport that upset the family.

I think the worrisome memory loss would be the person who remembers only the incident at the airport and nothing else about the holiday.  I know someone like that and I consider that insanity.
