Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

As we go by with our lives memories flash through our consciousnesses, nosalgia hits and a smile remains.

Whilst washing up today I remembered going to my first rave at 17; the music, atmosphere, excitement, surroundings and a sense of freedom enveloped me at that time. A smile washed over my face. And the day goes on.

Trauma

“The only thing is that you did not have luck with finding mental health support, and it seems important that you find a therapist who will help you look at what actually happened, to connect the events or the emotional environment of the past with the pain and symptoms of the present. Healing only occurs once you consciously link the two, dissolves the power the past holds over you through your subconscious mind, and helps you to grow and change.” – Anonymous
