If you could give a memory what memory would it be? (To anyone)

Asked by Vincent_Lloyd (3007points) July 3rd, 2010

I was just wondering since most people have either good or bad memories so.. Just thinking. (the thing is you can’t give bad memories only the good ones) I would give the one when I got my DSi (I wouldn’t give away the memories with my Amber EVER!) What about you?

Would I lose the memory when I give it to the other person or do they just get to experience it like it happened to them? If I was going to lose the memory, I wouldn’t give any away. If not, I’d give any of the joyful memories were I felt happy and loved to everyone I could. If I had to pick just one, I’d go with watching my son have a game winning save at his soccer game the other day. I was so happy for him and he was so excited to have blocked the ball and not let the other team tie the score. It was a great game and their first win of the season.

I’d love to get one from someone else. I can’t remember squat about my childhood. If I could give away a good one, it’d be of when I got the news that I’d been let into the Pharmacy Tech program. I’d waited a year for it and a couple weeks prior I had gotten a letter that I wasn’t going to get into the Fall cohort. One of the best surprises I’d ever gotten.

What a fabulous question!! I love it!!

If I was allowed (which I know I am not…but still) I would probably give the memories of abuse to the people that caused me all the pain so that they might understand and change their ways.

But!! I would most certainly give my son all the memories I have of him growing up and all the happiness that he has brought to my life, so that he could understand how limitlessly he is loved.

I would give my memory of the stars. There used to be a lot of stars, nowadays they’re harder to find. I’ve seen falling stars, slowly rotating stars, skies so full of stars that it made me gasp.

You can have those.

I would give the memory of having a loving parent holding you to anyone who didn’t.

Childbirth or running free like an Olympian.

Nightmarish memories!(I consider it as good and valuable memory myself). I would love to see their reaction while they’re experiencing this breath-taking vision.

The joy of awakening to ones true self.

So many never find this truth or the peace that comes with it.

I would give each of my children the joyful memories I had of them, and let them see themselves through my eyes. If I would lose these memories, I would only give them on my deathbed.

My Mom’s words to me when she dying in a hospital bed:

“You’re strong like steel”. “My baby girl, you will always be my baby girl…” “How could I leave all of this?” (she was looking at her four kids).

To me: You are a dancer and a dreamer. You have a zest for life. You have one of the biggest hearts of anyone that I know. You’re a smart girl and will find your way through life just fine”...

I’ll never forget those words.

(Mama knows you best)

Me: I love you so much, Mom.

Mom: I love you so much.

@jjmah You got a real gift from your Mom! My Dad told me twice in his last six months, “You do everything so well.” That was one of his last gifts to me.

@ChazMaz There was a movie about that once. Some sort of futuristic thing that plays that over and over. The guy DIED!!! And if you post a Q on that I will not look at it!

I ask what @Seaofclouds asks. Would I lose that memory? That would put a whole different spin on it.

Val123's avatar

@jjmah Ah…I just read your post. Oh God….

CMaz's avatar

@Val123 – Yep. Brainstorm. I love that movie.

Last movie Natalie Wood was in.

Also, he did not die. It revitalized him. He quit his job to enjoy life.

Well, it LOOKED like he was gonna die! Didn’t look fun at all!
