I hear what you're saying. That's also part of it. I have had these fantasy memories in the past, where, my fantasy has clouded out the real event
of what has happened. I think our brain has those fantasy memories because our brains want us to make us think that reality was so much better than
it actually is. It's our brains way of lying to us and keeping us from going crazy, at least, that's how I see it.
However, I'm not just talking about those fantasy memories here. In the past I've been unable to advance relationships with friends and other
people I guess crushes, because, primarily my memory has been faulty. It's not that my brain was restructuring events as I would like them to be.
It's that my mind was keeping from readily access tons of details that anyone would really need to have access to in order to build up a
relationship. It's like the details were stored in my long term memory and I had to think really hard about them in the past in order to retrieve
them, but, now I can look at them more quickly.
They weren't necessarily bad memories. There were some bad ones and some good ones. In the past though I've only been able to look at selective
memories, but, like now I can look at all of my memories as a whole, and, I can make judgments on them. I couldn't do that before. So that's why I
say they were repressed memories. They weren't always traumatic. I guess a lot of things have happened at once every now and then and I couldn't
process everything. So that's why it was like that.
