Have you ever liked something or someone, not for what they are, but because of the moment that you encountered them in?
My friend Emily likes Dubstep, a growing genre trend in music, but she likes it because she used to make out with her boyfriend to it. That is a “positive association”.
Positive associations can also be embodied by people. We all have a loved one, that we can’t help but to smile at when we see them because we always think back to that “moment”. Having positive people in your life is a blessing no doubt, but is it that particular moment that you hold on to, or is it that person?
Do you remember the time (Michael Jackson reference) you fell in love with someone or something?
Do you still associate something that you enjoy with an event from the past?
