Why do I reminisce so hard about the past?
I find myself remembering periods of time from 2-5 years ago and thinking "wow those were the days". But in reality, I didn't feel unusually happy at the time. Why do our brains work this way? I wish I could feel as strongly about my life today as I do about my life 3 years ago.
I also find myself saying "I wish I did more" when I was in [x city] or [x year of college]. Yet here, I am tonight. Just got off work at 6:30 and had several hours to do almost anything I wanted. But instead I played CS:GO for two hours and ate ice cream.
Is anyone else like this?
