Only human

Human mind is a crazy thing. You hide things on the back of your mind for so long that for a while it’s like they never happened.
You don’t have to make a deliberate effort to forget, it just happens. Like it wasn’t important. Like your mind recognizes the need to protect itself and just acts on it’s on.
You’ll remember eventually. It can take years, but there’s always something that triggers these memories. Often things that you can’t even explain. And sometimes it’s only then, years after the events took place that you allow yourself to think about them and about what they meant.
How, even if you didn’t even remembered them, they affected you throughout the years.
Human mind is a crazy thing. There are tons of reasons why we push memories away – fear, shame, embarrassment, nostalgia… we all do it at some point. It gives us a (false) sense of security. For a while, until you’re ready to deal with it, or until you don’t have a choice. The only thing is that it always comes back.

Human mind is a crazy thing, but no matter how good you are, you can’t hide from your conscience forever, because at the end of the day... you're only human.
