When the past controls the present the future will be ruined ..

In life people go through several stages so they experience different situations that create different impacts on their lives and sometimes these impacts last forever !!

The majority of people have a romantic image of their childhood or their past years in general ..they think the past was much better politically , economically and socially than the present.. their inability of coping with their problems make them miss the things they lost right now ,things they don't have any more like a social position ,successful career or sometimes the times they spent with someone dear who doesn't exist in their current lives for any reason.

This way of looking at the past and the present called Nostalgia

Wiki's definition:
The term nostalgia describes a longing for the past, often in idealized (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idealisation) form (. . .) nostalgia includes a general interest in past eras and their personalities and events, especially the "good old days" of a few generations back recast in an idyllic light.

And another article says:
The term ‘nostalgia’ derives from the Greek words nostos (return) and algos (pain). The literal meaning of nostalgia, then, is the suffering evoked by the desire to return to one’s place of origin.

Is it a disease ??
Yes , most of scientists consider it a mental disease or disorder and for some advanced conditions the recommend a Surgical treatment !!

The best things ever said about nostalgia:

"The only real security in a relationship lies neither in looking back in nostalgia, nor forward in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now."
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh (http://www.quoteland.com/author.asp?AUTHOR_ID=689)

" We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today. I don’t think it was, and I would advise you not to wait 10 years before admitting today was great. If you’re hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time."
-Art Buchwald (http://www.quoteland.com/author.asp?AUTHOR_ID=1666)

My own experience ... a whole year of nostalgia !!

It starts when I lost some one dear. That person I could easily call my soul mate. We used to go together, talk, watch TV and even think together. unfortunately we got separated , and I couldn't cope with my new life so I hung up with nostalgia and lamented the old days . In fact, people kept telling that the time will bring us together again but I should wait. Then I found out that in waiting I would miss the good stuff, so I start to appreciate the bless of solitude in thinking and planning for my life ,and I figured out that there's nothing better than today cuz it's the thing u can control ,change and certainly LIVE it.

oooh nostalgia
who doesn't suffer from this disease ,, I think we all do
u know what ,, in the past I was in love with Fairouz "the singer" I love her voice sooo much ,, i was listening to her songs all the time ,, one day ,, ,, I was talking with a friend about her and I discovered that this friend is in EXTRA love with her ,, in a way I felt I knew nothing about her songs,, time passes and we left each other ,, and now most of her songs remind me of this person ,, that passion became nothing ,, and now I barely listen to her ,, i still love her but i dont want to remember hurting things

thanx layali ,, nice topic

Hi ^___^

I think even children experience nostalgia
it is something that happens without a permission
ALL in your inner mind just keeps coming back ..

its really nice thing .. ^____^

yeah .. I guess even a piece of cake would maybe
remind me of a wedding or a party ...

an ant ... would remind me that I was so mean
to that ant .. :(

Past makes present and present makes the future
^_____________^

Thanks
