The good old days seem simpler because we know the answers to the questions, and how it all came out. Today and tomorrow seem difficult by comparison. Because we don't know the answers, we can only guess and hope. When I was little I often fantasized about going back to first grade, but knowing everything that I knew later, and really wowing them with how well I would do. Of course, I wouldn't learn anything and there would come a point when my past self would catch up with my present self and then I'd be in a bit of a pickle, wouldn't I, because here all along everybody thought I was some sort of super-student and all of a sudden I'd be thrown onto my own rather more limited resources. I wouldn't know the answers anymore. So, I'd struggle along for a while and then go back and knock them all dead again. Sounds like cheating, and it would be. Mark Twain wrote a whole book about it, called A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. It didn't work. You can't go back again.
