Why Are You Saving That?
I have emails from the people I met over the year. In some cases, like the very first emails G and I wrote, it has helped me to reminisce about how we came to be. We were so careful, yet funny, witty, and full of life. We read them together and make fun of ourselves over things we said. We are very glad to have saved them.
In other cases, it is not a good idea to have saved conversations. Some of them are extremely painful. Is it possible to have something that happened four summers ago seem like yesterday? I read through some today and decided that after I write about what happened during the year, I have to delete the ones that cause me grief whenever I come upon them. There is no reason to keep them. It is actually not even healthy to look at them anymore. I am not that person anymore and neither is the other person. I will need to let it go.
