Unformatted text preview: Without the long term memory there is no way for me to know who my friends are and who the people I could trust are. People could take advantage of me by acting like we are great friends and just using me to get something they want. Also I would never feel depressed about something I had done long ago that would normally bother me for years. If I had screwed up and broken my parents trust, that would normally make me feel bad for a while but in the absence of long term memory I would not remember doing that. I would not feel the guilt for doing something wrong after a long time because it would fade from my memory. Overall I think my life would be very empty without long term memory. Not knowing my friends and parents or how to get around town would make my life very frustrating. It would be hard to deal with all the things that would be forgotten because of that problem.
