Q. Are some people more nostalgic than others and what is it about these people that makes them remember the past? What happens or what is the purpose of nostalgia between more than one person?

A. We learn from our mistakes and we learn about the things we love when we go back in time. All our relationships, our fights, our love our hatred. There’s a charm in the nothingness which nostalgia very beautifully fills up.
