But here's the thing, you will only relate if you tend to be quite a bit forgetful.
It’s the first thing you likely do if you have a really bad memory. But, it’s ok, I’m pretty sure this is something we all do at one point or another.
It’s strange how your mind can go COMPLETELY blank after making the ‘long’ journey from one room in your house to another.
Sometimes it only comes back when you go all the way back downstairs.
Back to square one before you remember that you needed your sweater.
Ah, I guess it’s not all that bad. Probably keeps us forgetful ones quite fit.
It’s not just forgetting what you wanted, sometimes you forget what others wanted. Ever been asked to get a drink by someone, and then give to the wrong person, even though you were looking straight at the rightful owner? Hmm..or forgotten to get the drink in the first place?
The next issue that comes with being forgetful is managing your personal passwords.
Passwords are literally the worst things ever. Thankfully, for many of the apps on our mobile devices, we are automatically logged in each time. But anytime your phone updates or you accidentally log out, it’s terrifying. You rack your brain tirelessly thinking of the password.
The dreadful feeling you get when the screen says ‘incorrect’ password. It can leave you a teary, sweaty mess.
Another struggle with being forgetful is the fact that story-telling is really not your skill.
You’ve completely forgotten the reason that you were hysterically laughing five minutes earlier.
Sometimes I get scared to tell big stories, because of the above situation.
No wait- no actually this happened before that- but before that, this occurred. Actually I don’t know.
I give up.
Leaving this house can be an issue if you have a bad memory, because despite how much you plan, you very likely, will still leave something behind.
You have to give yourself about 20 minutes after getting ready, for the period you will spend going in and out of the house -frantically searching for that missing item.
Then the task of returning home with all that you left with. Let's not even go there.
I know some who have even forgotten their shoes when they leave a friend’s house.
Lists. Lists. Lists.
Lists = Lifesavers . Oh don’t you just love your lists? The ability to be able to re-jog your memory by looking at a sheet of paper. Always will have my trusty notepad by my side.
Some journeys you take frequently and still don’t know how to get there without GPS. And no, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been there 20 times before. I mean it looks different every time…right?
Without Google maps or the help of your friend you would never be able to move from A- B.
Now this one happens when I take soo much care into finding a safe spot to keep an item.
It becomes such a safe place that I can’t even find it again when I need to use it.
Yep, many of us do this a lot.
We become so clever, that we manage to trick ourselves.
The item ends up being something never to be seen or found by any human ever again.
Keep it in a (tremendously logical) place where there’s a chance it will see daylight again.
It’s better this way.
Forgetting the date despite the fact that you write it practically every day.
When January comes and it’s 2016, the struggle will be even more real.
Nothing more needed to say.
Even the pencil that you balanced on your ears, which you can see through the corner of your eyes.
Life is hard.

I recently read a short excerpt by Alain de Botton that made really reflect and think: Can we blame others for not understanding us? Let me explain:
