Hi guys, surely you have experienced something that happened in the past and it might be remembered one day. This is a common thing that happens to everyone because every incident will stick in the mind. This activity is also often referred to as nostalgia, we will remember memories. Everyone will certainly have the possibility of experiencing one of the two categories of nostalgia in his life. There are so many stimuli that will make us nostalgic with memories from the past. This is certainly one of the things that might remind us of good or bad moments in the past.

When we remember a moment that existed in the past, of course, we will mutter by ourselves. Is this nostalgia good for our peace of mind or not? This is one of the things that we must discuss further to determine our attitude if memories suddenly appear. Because there will be two possible behaviors that can occur when you remember a moment in the past. Everyone will experience different reactions when nostalgic memories are experienced. Of course, all that becomes part of life will be experienced by someone.

You must know that according to experts, nostalgia is divided into two categories, each of which is different. The restorative category exists because the current moment brings back memories from the past. The restorative nostalgia category of course can come without you knowing it beforehand and make different impacts.

While the other category is reflective, where someone is aware that what happened in the past has passed. They are aware that what has happened cannot be taken back at this time. Someone who experiences the reflective category will experience a longing that can be painful.

I once read in a journal that said that when someone reminisces, there will be feelings that arise. Often someone's nostalgia can eliminate the loneliness that is felt. Even getting rid of boredom and anxiety can be lost by reminiscing about memories.

Another positive impact of nostalgia is that a person can be more tolerant and also generous. A person experiencing nostalgia for something painful will also have a good effect. Because then they can see their current life is much more meaningful than before.

However, when someone experiences nostalgia, it often doesn't always lead to a positive impact on them. This is because nostalgia is not just about fun things. When someone remembers a sad event, it can ruin their mood that day.

Of course, everything that a person can feel depends on the category of nostalgia experienced by a person. You must be wise in making decisions when memories are present in a moment. Thank you.

I really like nostalgia because the positive impact of nostalgia can remind us in the past I've done things that made many people laugh happily and smile, and things like that we can do again in the future.

That's good. But don't get caught up in the memories of the past. Because it can have a negative impact

Yes, that is the positive side of nostalgia, but there are times when nostalgia causes one to feel confused or sad. This happens because there are factors of introspection and rumination. These are unintentional thoughts about a less than good past.
