If I Could Turn Back Time
If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life, either to experience the wonderful bits again, or to do something over, which part of you life would you return to? Why? #DailyPrompt
Some moments become the most positive influence in our life which we want to revisit again and again.We cherish the lessons and gifts these moments brought us- forever.
Sometimes unfounded fears are the reasons which stop us from taking those chances that you lament later and revisit those moments once in a while .
We fail to understand why certain events happened the way they did.We tend to analyze and over-analyze them looking for some plausible conclusions and reasons even after decades have passed by.
Was it all really so beautiful as we visualize it in our mind’s eye after ages or is it so only in the illusions we build as a result of filtering mechanism applied to our stock of memories .
As we grow and become more mature,we are armed with new understanding of issues providing us new view-points.Then, are our interpretations about the past accurate and exact or influenced by selective perceptual defense mechanism.Thus presenting before us the rosy visions we want to imagine?
Perhaps yes ; Perhaps no!
