Imagination, jaded memories.
Your imagination has the ability to sanitize your memories. The Israelite’s cried out to God to free them from being enslaved to the Egyptians, but when they were in the wilderness (their process) headed towards the promise land they began to complain. Their imagination began to clean up their memories to the point they started saying they were better off back in Egypt forgetting that they were in bondage there. (Exodus 16:3, Numbers 11)Sometimes “the good ol days” or that old place, or person you used to date really wasn’t as great as you’re trying to convince yourself it was just because what’s in front of you is difficult.
