(I know I'm rather late, sorry.)
This is a perfectly normal phenomenon and is based on one simple thing: you are more likely to survive if you remember things that threatened your survival. If a snake bites you and makes you ill from its venom, it's beneficial to have the ability to remember that illness and avoid that snake.

Unfortunately while this is a biological advantage, it means you'll stay up until 3 AM beating yourself up for something dumb you said 20 years ago but you won't recall the song that played 20 minutes ago. This seems to transfer to past life recollection as well; my first two memories were a near death experience and a death experience.

This also colors childhood recollection. I do not intend to lessen your position but it's easy to remember your dad losing it out of nowhere and punishing you for no reason. It's harder to recall that actually it was not a random assault, you had been badgering him for hours and he got tired of polite, gentle corrections. I am not attempting to dismiss your experience, merely point out that your brain will only readily recall the sting of the snake bite, and won't bother reminding you that technically you poked it with a sharp stick first. It is only useful to remember that X is dangerous, fear and avoid X.

There's not much you can do about this other than make a conscious effort to experience and recall positive events and dismiss negativity from your mind. It'll never go away but you can train your brain to change its focus.

Good luck!

That's my "Meet the Members" post from the Society of Enlightened Dragonologists! I'm a founding member there (http://www.dragonologists.com). I can tell because it has the same bad formatting!  ;D (I had to type the intro into a pdf form, and they copy/pasted it without fixing the spacing.)

Hey hun (thanks for the *poke*) ;)

It was fun, I didn't sell very many dragons, only 5, but it was nice to catch up with friends there ^_^

I think next year, I'm going as a visitor in costume, rather than as a trader. That way I can enjoy some gaming while I'm there.
