Introduction

Is memory essential for humans or does it hold them back? I believe that memory is extremely essential for humans. It is a special gift to human kind from god. if memory does not exist, we will never be able to move forward in life. Memory is something we without realizing depend on and as it is said human kind will not be able to realize its importance until and unless it is taken away from them. Memory helps us to expand our knowledge base, to remember things which please us, to remember our loved ones and regrettably it also helps us to remember the people we don't like and all the sad and appalling memories which we want to but cannot forget. ...read more.

People say we have a memory but it will also not be wrong to say that the memory has us. It somehow has a will of its own where every little thing that we manage to observe stays with us for our entire life somewhere at the back of our mind and is brought up by the memory at the accurate moment. it is because of this reason that some people feel that memories hold them back and one cannot wrong them. ...read more.

Conclusion

they have an accident or are caught by the police. And once this happens, they refrain from driving because all the bad memories keep coming back to them. Here, one could blame the child for making such a humongous mistake and could say that such dreadful memories is what he deserves. But, one could also blame the memory for coming up with this again and again and making the child fearful and afraid of doing anything new in life. So, one cannot realy decide what is wrong and what is correct because what is wrong for one person could be correct for another. So, I would just say that according to me, memories are very essential because humans need them to keep going ahead in life and to keep in mind what they already know. ...read more.
