Strong Feelings, Strong Memories

The power of trauma engraves events deeply in your memory. I can clearly see what’s around me, what my friend is saying on the phone and the images passing through an old TV set broadcasting live what was happening.

And it was 20 years ago.

The oldest memory I have in my mind is my mother giving her breast to my sister. And it was almost fifty years ago.
Fear and jealousy, two of the most powerful feelings a human being can feel are the strongest markers for memory.

What if we could exchange those toxic feelings with joy and happiness?

Yes, I remember the first kiss.
