good memories - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Good memories keep one warm in the storms of living, they are the moments real flashes of dreams made it into the real world, and so even though we often times need to process or ignore the bad memories that they are intermingled with, they are worth keeping safe in your heart. For these are the moments we humans won some joy, despite the struggle, we smiled and laughed anyway. The happy times happened. They were real. That's good. We pack our mental suitcases with only the best of memories so we can fly anyplace we want.

You can keep the good memories of someone and still leave. If the bad memories tell a tale of how you became unwell in that relationship, then it is better for you both to part. That's how most stories are, the bitter and the sweet, rarely a tale of two monsters.
