Why We Look To The Past

As writers and storytellers, we are often too in tune to our emotions and sensitivities. However, it can lead to unique insights….

There was a time I looked forward to each day.
There was a time when I was ready.
I now know I wasn’t ready.
I now know I won’t ever be ready.

The best is behind.
The present is torturous.
The future is at best mundane.

I will never live as I had in the past.
I will never love as I had in the past.
I will never experience as I had in the past.

I finally understand why people live in the past – for some, it is the only place where happiness still exists.
