what’s the point of keeping memories?

Today I discovered that many people like Snapchat, and one of the distinctive feature it has is that nothing is stored. Everything is lost within 24hours.

Just like in real life, you lose the memory unless you personally recall it.

This got me thinking. What was the point of keeping memories?
It was to not forget?

I think so, but I’m somewhat concerned about that small part of us that wants some melancholia right away, by looking at old photos and remembering the old times.

We are not meant to live in the past.
