It seems clear to me that who we were in the past is always dredged up by people unable to deal with the present. Maybe the root cause of talking about it stems from being unhappy with how things are now. Happy people just don't look backwards.
One of the luxuries of being contented today is not having to dwell on what was and just enjoying what is.
Why then do people like to look back? Even worse than just looking back is when facts of their former life are distorted. Changing, shaping and re-arranging stories have become essential as the air they breathe.
Our past is important. When we learn to accept it for what it was, we can then appreciate the present. Some people become better but most become bitter.
Only then, will we have learnt the art of moving on.
