“Nostalgia, the researchers say, may provide an important link between our past and our present selves, providing us with a positive view of the past, which in turn can help us find a greater sense of continuity and meaning. As we age, it may acquire an even greater role in our lives, as it may help us to overcome feelings of loneliness and to cope with social isolation. Found in all cultures and among all age groups, nostalgia, the study notes, offers not only insights in psychology, emotion, the self and our relationships, but it is also emerging as a fundamental human strength. (Association for Psychological Science, December 2008)”
