Good read Nicky. I think it’s a normal part of the human condition to look back at your past and contemplate the alternative routes you could have taken, the places you might have settled or the people that could have been a bigger part of your life. But I have observed in my personal life that a pervasive feeling of nostalgia can actually be regret in disguise. Whereas the former prevents you from acting in the present to change past circumstances, the latter can force you to identify what it is you truly want. Looking forward to reading more. Peace.
