Would I delete a memory? Well, first of all, it is becoming painfully obvious to me that my memory is doing a fine job all on it's own of deleting whole days, some of them within the past week.
Secondly, no matter how of a horse's ass I've acted in various times in my life, the other people involved are dear to me. Otherwise I doubt the memory would still be on file. Deleting those memories because they are painful would mean fewer memories of the people I love.
The older I get, the more people I have memories of move into the category of people no longer available for future memories. That makes every moment I've shared with them too precious to sweep out the door.
