Most of the time, nostalgia is considered to be a bad feeling; if you look up the word’s definition you will find many definitions such as:
“A bittersweet longing for things, people, or situations of the past”
However, we would like to add that you only feel nostalgic about the good things or situations you have experienced and the good people you have met that you miss. Feeling nostalgia is a nice feeling then because it just means you have had a good life.
One of the meanings of the verb “to miss” is “to feel the absence of something or someone” but you may know where the things or people you miss are. However ,“to lose” means “not to know where someone or something is”.
You generally feel nostalgic about the things you miss and not those you have lost.
Most of the time – “most” indicates a great majority of; nearly all.
For example: “Most people like chocolate = The majority of people like chocolate”.
Look up - to discover (something necessary) by going to a work of reference, such as a dictionary. We usually look things up in a dictionary, a guide book, or on the Internet.
Longing - a feeling of wanting something or someone very much.
For example: “I have a longing for my homeland at times”
All-time - An all-time high, low, best, etc. is the highest, lowest, best, etc. level that has ever been. My all-time favorite film is “Same Time, Next Year”. I absolutely love it, and for me it is better than any other film.
