Knowingly or unknowingly, with the passing of each day, new and new memories are forming. Our human brain starts working the moment we are born, it functions 24 hours a day. When we live a moment, we never realize that our brain is feeding it, no matter special or day to day it becomes store in our minds. Though, we believe that memories are only which we make. Like, we organize some moments in life specially so we can remember them. But we do not perceive that everyday that passes is becoming past and past is a name of memories. Memories are not solely for specific people for they are something which human himself form not buy. Old or young, rich or poor, king or slave, everyone has some memories. Every mind is rich in memories. You meet a lot of people in life, they come, they leave but you still remember them. How? Because at that time, when you were living the moment you did not realize your mind is devouring everything happening – making memory.
The debate is what role memories play in our lives? I feel, memories no matter good or bad leaves a great impact on future. It is absolutely wrong to fade memories away even if they are hurting. Than, there are some very pleasing memories that remain in mind even if we remember them or not. Life is hard and is name of struggle. We all, even the king or president, have to fight to gain a restful life.As it happens, all the countries of the world had to fight for its independence and after so many sacrifice they made it. The history of all the countries are painful. But how they have advanced so much today? Only because, they know after how much fight they have made their way. They have memories of their ancestors that do not allow them to do anything wrong.
I was 16 when Pakistan was formed and I saw the days of independence from my own eyes and still remember the struggle we made to get this land. This is the story told by an old man who claimed that he loves this land more than anyone because the memories of those days are still in his mind and knows the importance of this land. He said this because he was the witness of the sacrifices made to have this land. Those were definitely not good memories but really helped him to do as much as he could for his country.
Secondly, I think it depend on us for we make memories. And sometimes memories make us. We meet a lot of people daily, in this hasty world where we often forget ourselves, the only thing that take us into the past are our memories. Even if past is not good, its memories will help us in one way or other. Would you ever again make a foolish decision you made in past? Unquestionably, No. For Instance, I failed in a subject just because of my own carelessness and I really regret it. That cost me so much pitfall and I really do not ought to remember it. But again when I gave the same subject exam I remembered where I did wrong and that memory of the specific day helped me succeeding. Something that make you suffer, although worst to remember, are nevertheless helping.
Many a times, when something fail to help us, memories take us further. Different people come and teach you different things. You can not always learn from the same teacher, every teacher will make you learn something, he leaves but his learning remains in form of memories. I do not feel memories hinder anyway, it is on us to transform the bad past memories into a good future.
