If you knew, come tomorrow, you would have no memory, what would you choose to do with today?
We're never allowed to pick and choose what memories we get to keep. Every single memory that has been graphed in your brain can be taken in a single instant. An injury or a surgery, gone right or wrong, can take away aspects of your life, even your personality. You'd never know it. The only choice for countering your memory loss would be relying on the people around you. You'd hear, second-hand, about the person you were and what you loved most.
Relying only on others' memories of you, how would you want to be remembered?
