Issue: If I don't remember a lot of my past, how can it still cause me pain or suffering?
Insight: Life is filled with events that impact our lives, we may choose to deal with them, bury them, forget about them, or pretend they did not even happen, but it doesn't change the fact the event happened.
When a painful event happens and we bury it and allow ourselves to forget about it, we may be saving ourselves some pain at that time, however just because something is buried does not mean you don't suffer from it. When these things are forgotten the pain attached to them continues to grow and starts impacting you in negative ways. It is in these moments we need to ask God to reveal these things to us, so that we can process them and deal with them effectively.
Issue: I am constantly forgetting things. I used to have an amazing memory but now I find myself forgetting things all of the time. How do I get my memory back?
Insight: When stressful things happen, it can hinder your memory. Also, when a person becomes overwhelmed or has a lot on their mind, that person would be more likely to become forgetful.
One way to deal with it, is to make lists of the important things going on in your life. Schedule meeting and record them on a calendar that is in a visible place every day. Make grocery lists and keep them on the refrigerator. Make a to do list for every day activities. This should help you remember the important things.
Additionally, you can become foggy headed if you are lacking water. Try drinking more water the average person requires 8-12 glasses of water per day.
I strive to help others by being a safe place for others to ask questions and pose issues they face.
