Past Progressive – Use:

1) actions were in progress at special time in the past
example from life: They were playing the field actively in their youth..
2) two actions were happening at the same time (the actions do not influence each other)
example from life: He was having his coffee, while she was lost in thoughts of his dark past..

3) repeated actions irritating the speaker (with always, constantly, forever)
example from life: She was always being reminded of her experience(s)..

and keep in mind that Simple Past tense just doesnt exist in life grammar!
