Thinking About The Good Old Days

It’s almost always the “good old days“. We just don’t recognize them until enough time has passed.

And we misremember the past. We tend to forget about, or de-emphasize, negative events that happened in our past. Our memory tends to select the positive occurrences of our past.

The good old days aren’t always as good as we remember them. And current events aren’t always as bad as we think they are.
