In brief: Memory is sensitive

Normal human memory is quite sensitive to our responses to life events, our moods, sleep, interference due to past learning, medications, blood sugar levels, etc.
Memory also may work better when one experiences significantly more positivity than negativity. Our memories don't work like computers. Rehearsal and deeper processing of information helps.
