Overcoming dark memories

We don't have to be victims of the past. Painful memories can be healed.

It can be delightful and sometimes even invigorating to stroll down memory lane. Forgotten joys, friendships, acts of kindness, meaningful events, throng thought. Like the pages of a treasured scrapbook, the remembered joys of yesteryear bring dividends of good.

But what can we do about dark memories—those recollections that haunt, frighten, or depress thought? Past heartbreaks, injustices, griefs, or other troubles can seem inconsolable. We may, in fact, feel powerless to deal with them, much less overcome them.
