The mind has a complex network of associations that surround the significant people in our lives. There may be a place, sound, smell or even another person that reminds you of the person or situation that you’d like to forget. Ever had a song, smell or taste remind you of a memory? Or what if someone brings up the person or situation you’d like to forget? That can trigger the associated memories and feelings.
So what is the best solution? To heal the feelings. It’s really the unpleasant feelings that are unwanted. So healing the emotions is the solution. Learning any lessons that are there to be learned, then opening up to healthier opportunities in the future. It’s all about moving forward.
