I don’t know if this should be truth versus reality; truth and reality; a comparative study of truth and reality, or truth is reality. I don’t have the brain-power to figure all this out.

We are blessed with the ability to forget things. It’s a gift, but we often overlook its central importance in how we function.

Remembering is valued,. Not remembering is judged, criticized and diagnosed. Rightly so in some cases, but should we jump to the conclusion that forgetting is de facto some sort of failure?

The ability to forget is a gift that we generally fail to unwrap. If we could remember to forget more often it might free us up for other things.
