Nostalgia and attraction to past memories
Why do we generally focus on positive memories rather than negative ones?
+ mais generally, most of us tend to look back on the past in a generally positive way. Memories of college focus on football games, parties, and great lectures and not on fights with friends, frustrating homework assignments, and waitlists for popular courses.
+ nostalgic memories feels better than the present and that suppressed desire of wanting to recreate the past somehow.
Why is that? Why does the past always/most of the time feel better than present ?
