In my opinion life with such a perfect autobiographical memory would be definitely a curse. Yes, she is able to go back to happy moments but at the same time she is hunted by those painful memories. And it is known that sad emotions affect us more than joyful ones. Sometitmes it’s better to forget some moments and let the time heal the wounds. Besides, she mentioned that she has troubles with learning and that she is really bad in at memorising facts that aren’t connected to her life which was very problematic especially during her education. Personally I think that highly superior autobiographical memory isn’t that useful that I would want to “sacrifice” the ability to remember other things.
