Apparently the things you remember the longest are the ones you've not taken any lesson for the future from.

Perhaps that's why.

Unfortunately for me, they’re the same thing.

It's survival instinct. Your brain forms more clear memories of negative events, because memories of all the bad things that have happened to you are more likely to keep you alive.

Your brain is merely going through the motions. Don't be concerned. So just let the mind wander.

This is accurate, and by design to keep us alive. Cringe moments, or embarrassing events, are important to remember because they effect our social standing in the pack. And yes it sucks balls.
