What makes you nostalgic?Dan Wilkinson

How does ups & downs in our lives shape us who we really are?محمد حمزہ
Every experience helps us to learn. Then we can make either conscious or subconscious changes within ourselves to help minimalise the risk of going through bad and hurtful experiences again. For example, it's not uncommon for those who have had their heart broken to alter the way they feel about love, and either purposefully or naturally start to trust people less in order to try and avoid future heartbreak. Up and downs gives us an experience and we live through it. We learn a few things, lose a few things and gain some...at the end, we find the difference and that difference is the new shape of our life.
I guess we've got to know sadness to realize how precious happiness is and know happiness to really understand sadness. It teaches appreciation and gratitude and being present. It's not only your experiences that shape you but how you perceive and internalize them.
If you did someone wrong- how long will it take for you to ask for forgiveness? Do you think that you’ll be forgiven? Why or why not?Nᴀʀᴄɪssᴜs

Is there something in your past you regret? If so, do you plan on making amends? Or will you just let things be? Why?Nᴀʀᴄɪssᴜs

Have you ever felt like an outsider? Are you the type to make an attempt to be part of it? Or are you fine just being an outsider? Why?Nᴀʀᴄɪssᴜs
I am usually an outsider because I never fully belong to any group...Usually, I am fine with it because I am an introvert anyway but sometimes if I am left out too much, especially with people I am closer to...it will make me upset as I'd then feel unwanted/unimportant.
I always feel like an outsider...usually I do try to be a part of things, but sometimes people don't make it easy. So I kind of stay an outsider for a while.

Are you the type to have an unhealthy attachment to someone or something? Why or why not?Nᴀʀᴄɪssᴜs
No. I suppose it's due to experience. I've depended on having certain people around, and I've had to learn how to do without them. I feel I keep a healthy relationship with most nowadays.
