[prelude] It’s hard to remember things your mind hides from you. After an attempted recall, things are brought back into vision with an altered reality. Never will you recall exactly as what truly happened, nor will you recall the same details repeatedly. Why does the mind hide things from you in the first place? Sometimes the answer is to protect you from yourself.
