Just change your password to something tough. Not your dogs name, etc. 36 symbols - letters, numbers, symbols.

What if my dogs name is Rx55/?qi642pshc52%38{ ?

I guess I just need one strong memorable password for my email and random for the rest so when I lose stored passwords I can still reset them.
