Have you ever heard someone talk about the “good ol’ days?” Typically, this phrase is used to describe a season in life that was beautiful, fun, and invigorating. It was playing high school sports, or making memories in college. It was a season of freedom and vitality, a vision we hold onto from the days that have passed us by.
We all reminisce from time to time, letting nostalgia run its course. Remembering can be a beautiful thing. However, when someone lives their daily life believing their best days are behind them, we call that tragic.
