People have an inner desire to save memories of past experiences with loved ones. Memories are like a time travel machine that allow us to relive special moments that we cherish dearly. Looking at photos, journals, and other records can give us a sense of belonging and a better understanding of who we are today and what took brought us to where we are now.
