Often, our earliest memories are often hazy, wispy things. Maybe you remember a face or the color of a dress or shirt, while other memories from your early childhood are vivid and detailed when you picture them. Whichever the case for you, it’s more than likely that you have a hard time recalling the majority of the events that occurred during your early years. It’s also likely that most of your memories are false.
