Do our memories come carried with an emotional charge being so tightly linked to happiness, joy, grief or anger? Do we tend to remember the more traumatic events and the intensity of this memory is so magnified that we go into nostalgia in remembering what could have or even should have been.
So what triggers strong memories and then incites nostalgia? For many people, as they grow older this all-consuming nostalgia of reaching back to the past seems to bring some comfort, space and security, offering a way of holding on to our memories of all that has been in their lives.
Is this the power of our memories? Or can our memories be just a window to look back and celebrate the many achievements, the many connections and the many celebratory events that have made up one’s life’s experiences whilst we don’t lose our ability to truly value and appreciate the joyfulness of the present
