Nostalgia

When I was young my mom told us stories before we went to sleep, but sometimes when she Nostalgiaran out of her story stock she would drive down the memory lane and told us about some interesting incidents. She would become nostalgic and narrate the whole story in such a beautiful way that we felt we were there with her in the background. Now I understand why those narrations and descriptions were so lively.

imagesShe never had the liking to know the scholarly explanations behind nostalgia; she always enjoyed it as ‘visiting her home’. She has treasured them as her priceless past.

Entertaining nostalgia as a relief therapy is helpful, but its invasion in our lives can be harmful, and can lead to depression.

Nostalgia develops escapist attitude, we try to take refuge in those past memories which we find better than our present.

A simple thing to remember, if our past memories are our saviors of present, why don’t we try nostalgia-palhacoto create beautiful memories for a better future.
