Many people believe that the human brain has one hundred billion neurons that are constantly communicating to each other—sending and storing memories. Those invisible pieces of information are embedded in our bodies—part of our physical makeup—and when you recall them, they are rewritten based on every new experience.
Layer upon layer, our memories are changing as our story evolves.
This is just a theory and not all researchers believe that the process of remembering itself can alter memories, but I do. I believe that our memories are always changing so that they fit our story.
And we can pick and choose the memories that define our life and piece them together like a puzzle. They may not even be the truth—but an interpretation of the story so that all the little pieces fit together as best as possible, even if they don’t.
