Hi,

Are these sentences interchangeable?

1. Don't remind your parher with her mistakes of the past.
2. Don't remind your parher with her mistakes in the past.

Thanks.

The phrase "mistakes of the past" is okay, but since the correct preposition in this sentence is "of" (remind her OF) it would have an awkward "of... of" sequence if you left it as-is.
