Think of your memory as a mental white board. whatever we need to pull from long term memory shows up on its surface so we can use it efficiently in the moment.
But, during periods of high stress, when rumination, worry, regret and anxiety are top of mind, this internal chatter “writes over” what’s on your “whiteboard,” cluttering it so that there’s not enough space available to actually use it for what we need to do.
Positively Purging-I welcome your feedbacks in the comments and your likes and passing the real life wisdom on to others as I embark on this new venture of “positively purging“, as I know each of these pieces represents something…
I know a lot of people who have been commenting that they just can’t keep things straight right now and they have been struggling to remember things and function like they did before the pandemic, myself included. I was starting to wonder I was losing my mind, but I think I like what you posted better. I will choose to believe my brain issues are temporary.

I know what that’s like. You can become so overwhelmed that you can’t remember the simplest things. Big red flag that you need help.
