Many times, I have found myself making comments such as “in my old life” I did this or I could do that. I am always referring to how much better my life was “in my old life”.
Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick and How to Wake Up, is also a contributor to Psychology Today. Last month she posted on the good old days syndrome. I read this post and it got me to thinking. Maybe everything about my old life was as good as I remember it. Yes there were things I could do and things that were possible for me to do in that old life. But was I doing everything I could? Was it as perfect as I remember it? Of course not.
I think you will enjoy Toni’s post. It definitely got me to thinking and maybe I won’t be so quick to compare my life to my old life.
