Looking For What You Like…In Life

It’s a version of the glass half full maxim. When I see a person, place, or object, what specifically do I like about it? If I can put together a description of it, I can claim it. General feelings of pleasure won’t be remembered, but specifics will. Then I can look explicitly for what makes it special.

“Memory is treacherous; you can’t depend on it. It is basically always recreated to reinforce your anxiety or to make yourself look better, but whatever actually did happen is totally susceptible to subjective interpretation. I absolutely don’t trust my memory.”
