The Power of Nostalgia

This end year holiday I with my family went to our hometown in east Java, Indonesia. There is always some kind of energy charging when we visiting place that has a nostalgic memory. Our high school building, parents’ house, hang out with old friends. Something like that. Remembering old memories is the best refreshing. Many articles I read suggest that Nostalgia can also raise our self-esteem, encourage inspiration, and combat loneliness, depression and anxiety.

According to  Shannon Curry, a licensed psychologist based in Newport Beach, California, there are two primary type of nostalgia according : reflective and restorative.  The reflective nostalgia comprises a healthy acceptance of the past and firm grounding in the present. The restorative nostalgia involves a lack of acceptance of the present and a desire to restore situations from the past that might not be healthy or even feasible. That is might explain the importance of grit, hardwork, courage of learning form mistakes when we are young. Because later when we succeed that past wil become our sweet memories. Become reflective type of nostalgia.
