Disadvantageous of Having a Good Memory


In 2010 I wrote an entry about autobiographical memories after 60 minutes aired a story about it.  I have always had a good memory of people, places, and events of the past.  It seems that bad memories always predominate.  It is easy to remember conflicts I had with people many years ago even if they were minor.  Traumatic events often come to mind. Is this normal or is it just me?  Some of the bad experiences were:
  • Being let go from a job
  • A relationship that didn't work out
  • Arguments with colleagues
  • Rejection, both socially and professionally
  • Being bashed by the boss
I guess it is better than the other extreme of being very forgetful.
