Can you really ‘erase’ someone?
Can you really, really ‘erase’ someone from your mind because by remembering them make you sad? I was just finished watching a movie called "Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind". It was a story about a man, Joel Barish, heartbroken that his girlfriend Clementine underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory, decides to do the same. However, as he watches his memories of her fade away, he realizes that he still loves her, and may be too late to correct his mistake.
It was a sad-romance story though. I was crying while watching it...because it reminds me of someone and the memories of him that I really wanted to forget.
After I watched the movie, I was asking to myself...if I have the opportunity to erase him from my memories, will I do that? Will it be a sinful act?
~I already forget how I used to feel about you~ ~You can erase someone from your mind. Getting them out of your heart is another story~
Orlando: I'm just sittin' here, tryin' to think of a way to say this to you.
Orlando: I'm in love with you.
Helen: How do you know that?
Orlando: I don't know how to explain it to you.
Orlando: Helen, if I'm away from you for more than an hour, I can't stop thinking about you. I carry you in my spirit. I pray for you more than I pray for myself. I've got it so bad for you I'd... I'd go to the grocery store and buy your feminine products, I swear I would.
[Helen and Orlando laugh]
Orlando: And see? And that... that... That smile. Helen, when you smile like that, my world... It's all right.
