Unless you had severe emotional/head/mental trauma

My 93 year old grandmother with dementia can only talk about her childhood. She remembers everything from 85 years ago but cannot remember who called her on the phone 5 min ago

Favorite song lyric: don't be sad, be glad for the memories we had!

"Live as long as you may, the first twenty years are the longest half of your life. They appear so while they are passing; they seem to have been so when we look back on them; and they take up more room in our memory than all the years that succeed them."

~ Robert Southey

Nah. I can hardly remember much from my childhood.

This is because when growing up we're always experiencing different things until we finally get into the workforce. Then we work a job for 40 years then retire. 20-60 just runs together because it's so mundane and repetitive.

That's because as a kid you have a imagination and wonders to explore. But the older you get the smaller the world becomes and the weight of commitments and obligations are ever increasing until your last breath.

Yeah, if you manage to not smoke a bunch of crack and receive any head injuries as an adult.
