“life is complicated, you’ll understand someday,” what they mean is that they cannot:

Remember all of the ways in which they’ve been deeply wronged.
Remember all of the reasons why they were unable to do anything about them.
Remember all of the ways in which they’ve compromised themselves, each time for “good reasons.”
Remember how they got where they are, or which regrets to have.
