I'm wondering whether consistency of tenses should apply in the following sentence:
I've attended festivals like Coachella and I always felt physically awful.
Should "I've" be replaced with "I" to be consistent with "I always felt"? I read that using "I have" means emphasizing the life experience itself (attending festivals) which should be the case for the sentence.
But if "I always" would be replaced with "I've always", it would mean that the subject still feels that way until now, which wouldn't make sense since the attending of festivals already happened in the past.
