    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.

    can I answer none of the above?? smile
    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.
