Technically, you can't forget something completely, but you can forget about it so that it won't ever come up again unless provoked.

I don't know what happened to make you want to completely forget something, but my advice is to move on from it day by day. Distract yourself with other things.


I agree with you that no one can forget something/someone completely, but keeping yourself busy from it is a good idea to keep that thing/one away from your mind as far as you can

I often forget things I don't want to forget and shouldn't forget but with a little help of Mr. Alcohol I'm sure I can forget the things I don't want to remember

I try to forget things quite a lot of the time. Tends to be things that are inconvenient to me, and I'll just try to forget it. I would give an example, but I'll have to think it through for a bit...

I'd bang my head against a wall a few times if I didn't think that'd cause bigger problems.
Other than that, I don't know how I'd manage to.

I don't think I ever can forget Kevin Nicole Angeles Sison.

3 months ago, due to my selfish actions, I hurt someone very dear to me. He meant more to me than anyone in the world, and I loved him with all my heart. He broke up with me, but I fought long and hard to remain in his life. Being with him, I felt enlightened, inspired, loved, and incredibly happy. Last Friday we said our final good byes, while I cried hysterically. Because of my foolishness, we aren't together today. I triggered a chain reaction that made him realize so many things, and what he can accomplish if he focused harder in school and strive for internships. He's so smart, charming, knowledgable, and genuinely kind.. and I'm at a lost to where I should stand. Here is a picture of us when we were happily together.



I want to make a statement. I don't know what kind, but I want him to notice my efforts. Please, if anyone here has a Tumblr, help me in this struggle of mine, by reblogging and liking my Tumblr post. It expresses my heart and soul, and I hope that it will find a way to him somehow.

one way to answer that is to let you try and forget it, and if forget about it, then it works, if it doesn't then it dont =D

Usually, no. It depends on how I remember it. For example, if I memorized a phone number like 2 years ago, then I might still remember it. If I remembered a traumatic event, then I could block it out of my mind until I forget about it and only remember that I blocked something out of my mind.

I can wipe something temporarily from my mind if I try hard enough. But forgetting is almost impossible.
