    Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

    Probably never be able to make new ones, as the old memories made me who I am today.

    I would like to retain all of my old memories. It gives me a sense of who I am and helps me to treasure the good old days.

    I would like to be able to make new memories and NOT lose any of my old memories. Memories is making me a person since it helps me ponder on what I was and help me make new ones with slight editing here and there smile

    Oh that's a great question.
    If I lost my old memories, I would probably be unaware of who I really am. Most of which has grown from reflective memories.
    If I couldn't make new ones, then what would be the point. So I would say I'd rather never make new ones. I like who I am today & my memories serve me well.
    Thanks for asking.

    How would that work? Not being able to make new ones? Would it be like a "Memento" type of situation? I think in that case I would go with the Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind and lose all the old ones.

    I think I would rather lose my old memories and be able to make new ones as the new ones would become the memories I hold dear.  I do cherish old memories but eventually, the new ones made will become old...

    Thanks for a great question!

    I prefer not to lose neither the ability to lose old memories or not have the ability to gain new ones.   This is part of life, but If I had choose, I guess I would have to not make new ones.  Old memories just seem more comfortable for me.   Why would you not want to go home again, unless you had a very bad experience in life in general, like an abusive relationship with your parents. 

    To be honest, I have enjoyed all the memories I have made good and bad.   the bad ones are lessons learned.  No one has abused me (at least for what I am not aware of).

    I wish to erase all my past memories. I don't mind even to lose good memories. I'm sick of my past.

    i love my memories up to date, and I may not finish it well but I'll finish it thankful and satisfied.. . but if could still make new ones to add to what I should be thankful for then why not ! Life's gonna be more meaningful by that

    Keep the ones I have would be my choice. They are both fond and frightening, but I know them and they are an important part of who I am.  They tell me where I came from, who I know, what I like and what I do. They are life's lessons learned. I might better live without making new ones.
