      Meditation can, and has for many
      people, taken the "sting" our of bad
      memories. The mind will not let
      us entirely forget bad memories,
      but the meditative state enables
      us to quiet the internal chatter
      that keeps recalling the bad
      memories.

      As we experience the calm, restful
      state of meditation, we begin to
      accept the memories, and spend
      less time "wrestling with reality".

      If the bad memories involve guilt
      or shame or your part, then you
      might find a spiritual model that
      will take you to deep meditation.

      The experience of deep meditation
      can bring "forgiveness" and a sense
      of restoration to wholeness. Then
      the bad memories are seen as
      truly in the past, and not a part of
      who we are in the "now". And life
      will once again seem worthwhile
      and become an enjoyable gift
      - even blissful.

      Respond privately if you like.

        In other words, it's fine to watch the birds fly by,
        but don't let them build nests in your hair.
