  1. Really-sadness (sadness) this is an emotion that occurs in response to the perception of the loss of something important, personally significant. In a nostalgic episode, there is just a memory of something pleasant and cool that is already in the past and is unlikely to be repeated exactly. A happy state of mood at the moment does not contradict this in any way, and even on the contrary, it can be aggravated by contrast.

  2. The emotion of sadness is associated with a sense of loss. Nostalgia is a specific type of sadness, an experience that we experience when thinking about past times and events.

    Simply put, loss = sadness, and nostalgia is just about irrevocably gone time.

  3. Because it gets into the neural network and the reaction automatically occurs there. But it can be restructured with a psychologist. If there is a need.

  4. In short, nostalgia is sadness for something that won't happen again. Accordingly, in nostalgia, something is remembered as completely unique, having value (sometimes precisely because of its irrevocability). Often, such memories are subjected to unconscious processing, in the direction of idealization-only good things are remembered, disconnected from the real context. In the present, it is not so easy to disconnect from reality, happiness in the present is still adjacent to everyday life, everyday issues, and can be perceived in contrast to the idealized past. Sadness indicates what is missing in the present compared to the” cloudless ” nostalgic past. It makes sense to periodically ” get ” this value out of nostalgic sadness and see how it can be implemented in the present, so as not to devalue what is now.

  5. “Memories are our illusions about the past”

    Whatever the memory, nostalgia brings with it reflection, apathy, and insane introspection (maybe even self-flagellation). We begin to remember how good it was for us then, in the past, but with longing and sadness we begin to understand that this can not be returned. Therefore, nostalgia can be called a pain of memory.�

    The past seems to be an unforgettable, unique, valuable piece that you want to relive again. And besides, we can only feel nostalgia for what made us happy at least for a minute, this is a unique moment that has stuck in our memory, so valuable and perfect. Only it will never be there again.�

    In addition, looking back on the past, it seems to us something magnificent, we too begin to exaggerate the significance of this event in our lives, based on this: longing, sadness, tears, a sense of loss, suffering, self-flagellation and other negative and even obsessive emotions.
