impossible…you either find a way to enjoy your memories, find something good about them
…or you get to enjoy insanity.
Trying not to think about something actually makes you repress it and end up thinking about it more. You need to think it through all the way. If it upsets you, let yourself be upset for a little while. Or talk about it with someone. After awhile it will go away, but on it’s own. Try to do other things in the meantime.
That last thing was good advice for a different time, my situation is a little different. It’s actually not a big deal, it just makes me happier if I would forget it.
I think you should excise!
make some1 brainwash u?
Hey man, we’re not robots. Your not being able to forget makes you human, and there’s nothing wrong with being human. Nothing at all. Time is all you need. With time, memories seem to fade away and pale into insignificance. I agree that you shouldn’t be left alone with your thoughts. Don’t think to yourself that you want to forget this thing, but if you find yourself remembering it, then just make yourself busy with something. If it depresses you that much that it keeps you up at night, do strenuous cardio/ weights in the evening and trust me, you’ll be so knackered, you’ll fall straight off to sleep!!
Just go out with your mates, go to work/ school, etc, keep yourself occupied and busy with your life and surround yourself by people who love and respect you and the rest will fall into place given time. You do need to give it time though.
Hope this helps,
for me the thing i want to forget keeps coming everyday, and i don’t think it will ever go away:(. its a girl,and shes always there at my house everyday with my sister. this girl just tells my sister lots of things. I did like this girl once, but then it just change from a good loving feeling, to a hate and anger with her. i can’t look at her, i can’t even be in the same room as her. i would wish she would just go away one dat and would never come back in my life again. thats what i would like to forget.

i lost something very important and want to forget about it everytime i think about it i get this pang og regret and guilt so someonne help me?
Hey Kimrebecca6, I have a feeling that I know what you lost :[ . If you are feeling bad about it I’m ASSUMING (I may be wrong) that you are religious? Perhaps you should talk to your bishop (I’m LDS and that’s who we talk to when we confess a sin) and then after you’ve done all that you can do, and God’s forgiven you (if you ARE religious, that is) then you’ll feel at peace and then it’s time to forgive YOURSELF (which is probably the hardest part). But repentence isn’t just “confessing that you did something wrong” although that IS part of it. You have to never do that sin again. Otherwise, you weren’t that sorry about it in the first place and therefore didn’t completly repent. Does that make sense? I understand what you are going though. But the only way to forget about it is to 1. Never do it again and 2. Forgive yourself. We’re humans: we make mistakes and very BIG boo boo’s in life. We ALL do. So understand that you’ll be ok and to learn from your experience: that it wasn’t worth it. That way you can tell your friends and they won’t make the same mistake you did, thanks to your warning. Good Luck, Kim!
Um. . Maybe if you try this. . . if its something you really wanna forget . . cause yourself amnesia. . . but if you start to regret something a chain will come and drag you into the abyss and then the will of the abyss will turn you into a dolly chain. .
Quit thinking so much and motivate yourself, workout everyday, Everytime you go to sleep.., tell yourself “you got no emotions or memory”, you might get a headeck often but the more you concentrate on absolutely nothing, you will then find freedom and every bad memories will fade away or will become a joke. You might go insane several times since it would mess you up but..dont worry about it. ” If we are that intelligent to think and learn, then we are capable of doing anything just like programing our own brain”.
hahaha ur stuipid
I need to forget something very weird and embarrassing which is very gross which involves one of my friends. I can’t talk about it with my friends even if some already know about it. i can’t even act normally near the involved guy! The people who know tease me about it so, should I tell the involved guy or not since he suspects something already
i would suggest renting the movie Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind with Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. DO IT NOW.
I also need to forget something that scares me so much. Please help!
i did something very bad that just comes to me at night.Durring the day inow its wrong,but at night i cant control myself and i do it any way. please tell me how to get out of this bad situation.the guilt is eating me alive!
Ive just done something that I am really ashamed about. I feel guilty but worse I feel as if I have left my family down especially my parents who have raised me to be a better person. I know I can never tell them because it wiil ruin them. Because of what Ive done I want to become a better person for them and a better son for them and make them proud before they die. They deserve better and I love them to bits.
Me Im going to have to accept what I did and be a man and move on.
If I can offer advice to anyone else I just want to say this. We make mistakes… we are human and we can do extremely shameful things like I just have. It is important to remember that life gives you the opportunity to make up for what you did and or if you can’t at least attempt to. I urge you to get up, get out and make it whatever you did better or if you can’t do the next best thing attempt. If we do this God will know that in our hearts we mean well and that we ourselves know that we can take hits like these and move on and be good humans.
I hope I can do this… I’m certainly going to try because this life is the only place I know of and I want it to stand for something good and repay the ones who love me!!
Best of luck everyone, I know you guys can do it!!
try and do somthing really fun i always seem that when im haveing loads of fun all the bad things go away but its just temporary so the memory may come back that what i do i found out somthing really bad about 5 years ago and its still in my mind but when i have fun ot just seems to go
everything happens for a reason….so chill
Someone actually made a pill for that.
Although, I whole heartedly disagree with this. I have troubles remembering things, why would someone do something so terrible as to invent a pill like this.
OK Look, you see an accident on the freeway.
1. Slow down and cause traffic just to see what happened or
2. slow down, stop, and do something about it.
If your like 99% of the population you will slow down like an idiot and care nothing about the people behind you just to see whats going on so you can tell someone(Do yourself a favor and keep driving if it’s so important for you to forget something). We are humans, and some thing called human nature apparently makes us look.
but as a civilized culture we need to look deeper, why did we see this accident?
was there a reason for it? of course there was. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Don’t cry and whine and say “I need to forget about it”.
If it drives you to drinking, that is a decision you have made.
How to forget about something that you did that you were not suppose to do?
