Were it not better to forget,
than hurt yourself with agonies long buried,
why call to remembrance sufferings long forgotten?
is it to add to today’s unbearable burden?
Life is too short to live in the past,
the best of life is enjoyed in the now,
isn’t it insane to let the nightmare of yesterday,
stop you from living your dreams today?
It is, that’s why Letitia Elizabeth Landon asked,
“Were it not better to forget
than but remember and regret.?”
