Life As An Introvert: Take Me To The Place
Too much spending time alone will lead my mind to several moments in my life. It has same portion between the good memories and the bad ones.
On that night, I heard an old song, sang by an old soul about nostalgic moments. In Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from the old wound."
It is a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device is not a spaceship, it is a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to the place where we ache to go again.
On other hand, the word "nostalgia" could lead you to the happy moments where you want to go back to the good old moment for once again and feel the happiness.
So, which one should I trust? That meaning or the other one?
Or maybe.. it is not because of the meaning. Maybe it is because we are tend to remember the bad memories because the pain always takes control our heart faster than the happiness ones?
