I’ve tried to forget, but the memories keep coming back. Flashes of color, smells, and sensations. He is everywhere. No matter what I do I can’t get him out of my mind and I hate myself for it. I wish I could erase every memory I have of him: maybe it would make the pain go away. Instead I’ll try to forget.

Forgetting all that is,
and all that ever was.
Forgetting all that hurts,
Forgetting all the things,
the things that make me sick.
They say forgettings bad,
but its what helps me live.

Why is it easy to forget some things but not others? Why can’t we forget what we want to? Why are the hardest things to face the hardest things to forget? Why can’t we be forgetful when what we want to forget hurts us so much? Why can’t we forget? Why?
By McKenna Kozitzki on 06.07.2011
we cant forget, because forgetting is only an illusion! memories simply fade and hide but never disappear

It’s easy. Its sad in many ways, but good in others. Forgetting the past can lead to your future. Forgetting is easier said then done.

is such a difficult thing to do when deep feelings are involved. I guess it’s one of the things it takes years and years to learn how to do. Or at least we think so, because we never really forget anything, we only get used to things in some new way.

We forget more than we will ever remember. Once we remember, we instantly forget other things. For as long as we live, our memories will be tarnished and destroyed, by such things as parents and drugs. Forever forget.
By Natalia on 06.07.2011
Please don’t forget about me. That would be the worst possible thing. Hate me, fine, because in order to hate me, you must love me equally as much. Don’t forget the love you had for me, and hopefully it will return.. Well, hopefully, it never left. I don’t know, I just want you to know that I’ll never forget you.
By Desiree on 06.07.2011
I’ve forgotten of when I was your friend. I’ve forgotten of how we used to play, and enjoy each others company. If I could see you again, I would remember you. The opposite of forgotten. You are both. Remembered, and Forgotten.

Forgetting is a myth
By bathtub_dj URL on 06.07.2011
I’ve never been to forgetting. It’s somewhere, perhaps on the edge of a cliff or a sea. It’s a place that I wish I could walk to, and leave my footprints in, but it’s a place I’ve never seen. I have plenty to forget and plenty to remember, but wherever I look, something keeps me bound, in an unrelenting present, forgetless.

the think i like to do when i get hurt. it makes things easier. forgive and forget, right? isnt that what youre supposed to do? its the act of feeling less pain, plain and simple. it makes you feel better. a lot better. “the beauty of forgetting” but yu should forget, because not everything is worth forgiveness.
By abbie on 06.07.2011
your cant remember only what youve thought and then you go through the long arduous process of trying to remember what you have forgettten and then soon the forgotten thought travels nto the deepesest pit of your mind, which is call surpressed memory. Forgetting is a human action upon which makes human.
By Sarah on 06.07.2011
I hate forgetting things. It freaks me out. I am compulsive about lists and walking in circles to make sure I haven’t forgotten anything. It’s a crazy weakness of the brain to be able to forget things that are important..
By Diana on 06.07.2011
She tries to forget. Constantly. But forgetting is harder than just not remembering, and she’s never been good at it. Everything she’s ever done, everything that’s been done to her, everything that has ever happened in her life; they just don’t go away
By Mackenzie on 06.07.2011
I cannot stop forgetting why I am angry with you which leads me to forgiving you, you stab me in the back and i hate you for it but then I forget and forgive and it happens again.. Why did you come back Hannah?
By anon on 06.07.2011
Forgive but never forget. Its hard to forget when people hurt you. Forgetting their actions makes them feel like they never happened when in actuality you are only trying to block out your own feelings. Forgetting is ignoring, forgetting is denial, forgetting is blocking your memory and forgetting is cheating. Forgetting is running from all that hurt and you and it’s a copout.

Why is it that I keep forgetting that beer gives me a nasty hangover? And then the next morning, remembering again is oh so painful!
By Psychochook URL on 06.07.2011
I hate forgetting. I forget everything. I have such a bad memory I cant even remember what someone told me 2 minutes ago. I can hardly remember what I did yesterday. Its maddening. I always tell people I will do something for them and forget 30 seconds later. Ugh. Well I can remember when people write things down though. I guess it has to be my ADHD that plays a huge roll in me forgetting things.
By Rachel on 06.07.2011
She keeps forgetting what I said and I want to tell her so many things now and I can’t get them out fast enough before she forgets all over again and closes her eyes against me.
By nannan on 06.07.2011
i am never the one who forgets… i always seem to store up all these strange… random… odd facts that most people tend to have go in one ear and out the other… who knows why… no one will remember the fact that i was the one remembering… they will only remember the forgetting
By lindsey URL on 06.07.2011
i would love to be able to forget thing ewasier i always feel like i am forgotten in this world i hate that i want to forget a whole big chunk of my life but ill never forgt some of the people.
By Gracie on 06.07.2011
I forget stuff, i hate it… So yeah, that it all people forget stuff its how human man kind is, 16 sec it kinda long time when thinking about it…. But again tomorrow i’ll forget about it… So forgetting is forgetting just as human nature. Thats it my 16 sec xD:
By Glen URL on 06.07.2011
What on earth am I doing here? And who is this person talking to me? She’s smiling at me and holding my hand but I don’t know her. I seem to be in a hospital room but I don’t know how I got here. Owwwww, my head. It has a bandage on it. I must have hurt myself but how, and why?
By Dayle Morrison URL on 06.07.2011
Forgetting is never a good thing. Whether you forgot that you have already told that story 12 times. Or that you forgot a past love. Or forgot rather than forgave. Forgetting has no space on this earth. Stay present and always remember the past.
By madirose on 06.07.2011
I’m forgetting why I love you. When I look into your deep blue eyes, I remember, just like that.I hope you know how much you mean to me. You know my deepest secrets, my life goal, everything. Thanks for not forgetting about me.
By Allie URL on 06.07.2011
is the easiest thing someone can do. Especially the bad qualities in someone. When you want to forget the bad things they have done to you, so you can fool yourself into a relationship which isn’t there. Which isn’t real. Which messes with your mind. Most people are scared of forgetting special moments.
By Hannah Robinson on 06.07.2011
“Why?” I screamed at the man, hysterically shaking. “What gives you the right to make me keep forgetting everything? How the…” I broke off, unable to continue. I was shaking in a pure, blind rage.
By Madi URL on 06.07.2011
Something that is easy to do, although It can be very frusterating. You always feel like you are doing it, even if you are not. It can also be something difficult to do, and moving on from past experiences.
By Amy on 06.07.2011
It’s hard forgetting that one day at that one time… It’s left a scar, one that will never fade away. I’m scared to know that I won’t ever forget it. I’m scared to know that it’s left such a deep mark on not only me, but them…
By Lamsinyan URL on 06.07.2011
Fleeting, tumbling and evading, it squirms and writhes as I slash at it. I swipe through it like fog and it snickers as I weep in its shadow. I crave to remember, but it mercilessly leaves me guessing.
By Grace on 06.07.2011
Forgetting is one of my bad traits. I forget things so easily, especially names. Every time I meet someone new I instantly forget their name a few minutes later. If there is anything I can change about myself, it would be to not forget things all the time. The reason why I get B’s on my tests is because I forget about them… and I’ve forgotten a lot of my memories of when I was a little kid :(
By Khani URL on 06.07.2011
I’ve walked that route leaving foot prints in the tears. Stumbling in the maze of confusion and all the while thinking forgetting would now be a blessing, though it was the cause.
By Will Creates URL on 06.07.2011
Forgetting sucks. It’s like a dream that won’t come back to the conscious memory so you can dissect it properly. It’s the train that left the station without you! It’s the keys on the counter, the mail in the box, the bill you meant to pay.
By Jennifer Allaby on 06.07.2011
Forgetting is such a silly word, because you never actually forget you just choose to put it out of your mind. I forgot. What a common phrase. I forgot to close the garage. I forgot to clean the house. I forgot I wasn’t still 17. I forgot I was a mom.
By Kristin Auzat URL on 06.07.2011
i had forgotten how amazing it is to be single. i was bound to a man who i couldn’t have. now, i’m forgetting my past, leaving it behind, and looking forward to a promising future.
By Isa Salda!!! URL on 06.07.2011
Can I possibly remember to forget it. All about it…is IT possible. I am all about forgiving and forgetting but oh my, it is hard to do. It feels like a huge sacrifice…a surrender of the worse kind…I push myself to forget, I do…but….
By melissaabbott URL on 06.07.2011
walking in, walk out. i was here, i stood here for.. for… turns away. tear hits the floor. i cant do this anymore. at least, no i know i cant. “hello grandma” silence… “im sorry, who are you?”
By sketchthemessage URL on 06.07.2011
forgetting. how does one forget something? it is more than just absence of thinking, perhaps it is the will to forget that begets forgetting itself.
By John on 06.07.2011
happens more often than not these days due to the new baby. problem for me because I don’t like forgetting things. type A if you will. might be a good thing though, to forget
