I was reading a book recently and came across a passage in which a man was returning to the place where he grew up as a child. The author summed up the character’s feelings perfectly —

“he felt like a ghost haunting his own past”

It instantly struck a chord with me because it’s exactly how I feel when I look back at code I wrote last year, 6 months ago or even last week. We’re always learning, always improving and being our own worst critiques. In my opinion that’s the way it should be.
