“May you live in interesting times.”
This quasi-blessing is actually a curse. Times that are not interesting are peaceful, while times that are interesting are times of great conflicts. Clearly, it’s better not to live in interesting times.
Interesting times are generally interesting. To wit, most history books are about wars and conflicts, very few are about when the world was at peace.
People are likewise. They have more interest in their traumas than when they were carefree. Perhaps they would be better served showing little interest in their personal history. That way, they can move forward carefree.
