    I would not only like to erase certain memories, but I would also like to erase certain events in my life.

    Everything I've experienced in the past, both the good and the bad, is part of what I am today. Even to erase the memory of the bad, would result in changing my now.

    I don't have any memorys that a want to erase. If I did,I would want to make sure that it would erase the trauma too instead of making it impossible to ever deal with because I wouldn't know what happend.

    Memories are what make up who we are. I would never want to give up any part of the experiences that brought me to who I am now. Well, maybe except that time my friend tricked me into watching 2 girls 1 cup... I could live without that memory.

    No. Because if I erased a wrong memory by mistake then I would not remember why it was wrong and which memory I should have erased at the time that I erased it, if you get my drift.

    More from my husband's memory than my own. I've dealt with the memory I am speaking of, but he can not get past it...it's been years and he still is having trouble getting past it.

    Every experience, good or bad, has contributed to who I am today. It is the road I traveled to become the person who I am - and while I am still learning, I am quite content when i look in that mirror. Every experience is a learning experience.

    One learns by thier mistakes, if you erase it all you'll have to learn your mistakes and misgivings all over again and probably at a much higher price tag.

    It's the bad ones that remind me who I truly am... Bad memories are the memories of my losses, pains, sufferance lived, mistakes, regrets, sadness felt, obstacles I went through, hardships, betrayals, risks... These are the things that we learn from as we grow in this body, the things that forge us, test us to our better judgement, strength of will and spirit to learn from them is wisdom, growth... I wish I could remember everything...

    Sometimes I wish I could start over, well actually I did, but that comes later



    I was a kid, when I accepted Jesus as lord ... and so i thought but you see i never really had an understanding of God and who Jesus was really so that was not a true conversion.

    I thought I was a good person but I was lying to myself. Having no spirit my I became an Atheist, I was a real Jerk growing up in a home not with my Parents, but with Great grandparents.

    I came to a point that I wanted nothing to do with God, I use to curse him and throw his Bible across the room and i lived my life the way I wanted to.


    When I was in the Navy, I was in the Gulf on Combat duty, I was a navy Photographer and I was going up the steps from the Bridge to the Signal Bridge on the USS Anchorage and some how I fell back and flipped 15 feet onto a hard metal deck, messing up my back, my wrist, and broke every bone in my nose.


    When they took me to the Doctors on the other ship, the Doctor said " There is no way you should be alive" but God had other plans for me and you know not being saved, had I died, I would have been in Hell.


    God never gave up on me and there came a time when I was I was asking what was the meaning of life and was God real. I searched and i read the Bible and i found him



    And although Everything I e...

    God never gave up on me and there came a time when I was I was asking what was the meaning of life and was God real. I searched and i read the Bible and i found him



    And although Everything I ever did in the past is forgiven, I still wish that I had done things different But you know what?



    Heaven will be filled with all sorts of Sinners... Yes that's true but Sinners saved by the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross



    But as a former Atheist, Never again do i ever want to return to that. Jesus means more to me than anything else in the whole world



    I found Him, and He's only a Prayer away God is real You can't work to earn a way into Heaven, you can't be good enough, Attending Church won't save you, or even having a few facts about God.



    How then? Simple: The bible says we are all sinners and that we have a wall between us and God that wall is sin because God is Holy. How do we bring that wall down? By asking Jesus to forgive us of our sins and by repenting and turning away from them and trusting Jesus in Faith that He died on the cross and rose from the dead for us.



    And making him our own Lord and Master. When you truly do that, His Holy Spirit will come in you and you will be saved and sealed. All sins you committed in the past are forgiven, and in the Present and future as well. But we confess daily acknowledging that He forgives.



    I can tell you as a former atheist, I thought I would never believe in God. And I thought once that those that did were idiots, and fools, but it was not them, It was me.



    Believe me, Jesus loves you and if you call on him, He will forgive you. Does that mean that life will be filled with Peace? No, but the difference is that when we go through those valleys of trials, Jesus is with us.

    sometimes they are all we have,good and bad.Memories form the structure of a man or woman's behavioural ways.fear,joy,sadness all emotions and reactions have to do with memory,why erase them.Memories are the most valuable thing anyone can own and nothing should be aloud take from that.

    There are just 2 things from when I was a little girl that I really realllyyy wish never happened... Out of all the few memories to keep at such a young age it happened to be those two events that disgust me, make me feel gross... no lesson learned from them, just....not good things.

    I don't have any memories that need to be erased. Beside that I am a person who thrives on knowledge and once I found a memory gap it would probably drive me insane trying to get it back.
