Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Sometimes forgetting can be a blessing. Some of us are more inclined than others to be forgetful about things. When it comes to releasing negative events, the forgetful aspect of our personality can be very helpful. Holding memories of adverse situations reinforces a toxic stress response in the body and emotionally can foster resentment. A sense of awareness of negative people and things is important to have so we know what to avoid, but on-going resentment makes us emotionally unhealthy and physically sick. Forget what you can. Have a peaceful day.
Peace, Dr. Ma'at E. L. Lewis
