Writing this out because I saw someone write in a post about nobody wanting to hear about the simple lifes. I've had many past lives, almost all of them in Europe, often treading paths that were dangerous, even at times outright immoral. Yet the life where I was happiest was a simple one; Italian Baker, 1600's, Milan, I believe, with a very happy, very fat wife, and clutch of chubby faced smiling kids. I was well liked, I made good food, I was respected by the community, and I never wanted for anything, and I died peacefully in my bed surrounded by family with a life tarnished by neither tribulation nor hardship. But whenever I do my regressions, it's almost always scenes from the more violent lives I've led. Pennants, arrows, the small of fire, the smell from the oil of my armor, the noxious smell of a battlefield, choking gunsmoke, holding my brother in my arms as he bleeds out and turns white until he stops breathing... Does anyone notice a similar trend with their own regressions? Why are the more violent/unpleasant memories more common than the ones with simple, happy, and meaningful lives?
