Calm Down!

I believe for the most part I have a pretty average memory. Some things I can’t recall at all, others I can generally remember and others I can remember as if it happened an hour ago. Many times when retelling stories or just simply telling about particular events that I witnessed or experienced i find my listener trying to calm me down or give me some form advice as to how to deal with it or that I need to get over it. And everytime I am taken aback! I think that what they don’t realize is that I am recalling the event as if it’s happening…episodic memory. I may be well “over it” or not bothered by the event anymore but I can still remember when the event happened, the time, where it happened and how it made me feel as it happened vividly!

Speak Your Mind
