How to hide people, pets, dates, and certain creation types in Google Photos Memories

It's been nearly a year since Google Photos added a Memories section at the top of your gallery to showcase photos you've taken around the same time but in previous years. During its launch, Google promised that to avoid painful moments, you'd be able to hide people, pets, dates, and more from showing up there, but those settings were very limited at the beginning.
