Erasure: Post 68 of 365 post prompts for 2014.
Today’s post asks us if we had the choice to erase one incident from our past, as though it never happened. What would we erase and why?
I wouldn’t. I can’t think of one thing that I would want to erase that wouldn’t change history without stuffing everything up. I like the way I am and if I was to change my history I would be changing myself and I have no way of knowing whether it would be for the better or not. We are all the product of our experiences. Sure I’ve had my share of pain, embarrassment and extreme unpleasantness that I wished hadn’t happened, but it all shaped me in some way. Finally after twenty seven years of life I like myself. Sure I’m not 100% happy with the way I look or my mental abilities – but these are things I can work on, and I am working on.
So no, I wouldn’t erase anything!
