Our past experiences shape the way we communicate and how we get along with others. Though the past has come to pass , the hurt, resentment, sadness and regrets are all retained within the depths of our consciousness. Whenever we encounter comparable events, memories emerge along with the corresponding emotions. However, an attempt to suppress these negative feelings does not address the root problem. Instead, we should learn to engage such matters with a positive mindset, and seek guidance and healing from God our Lord. Dr. Katherine Kot discusses how Emotional Memories affect out life, and the relationship between Childhood Experiences and the formation of Personality Flaws. Know that our personality is not a static entity. If we are able to alter the way we perceive our emotions, changes in our character are sure to follow.
