This is weird, but for almost the past two years now, I've been having nostalgia with one part of my childhood years 2009-10. I've been wanting to go back to those years so much and thinking about them so much that I have suddenly began to realize that I was my most happiest then. I enjoyed other years but idk why I think I felt most happy in 2009-10 when I was only like 6-7 years old. Ever since then, I haven't really been able to feel like I fit in with the present or enjoy the present due to the overwhelming nostalgia I have for 2009-10. It's like it's an obsession and I want to move on from it because I was only like 6-7 years old in 2009-10 and I dont think teens my age are that obsessed with their mid childhood like that. I feel so weird because I'm tending to cling onto and think a lot about things from that part of my childhood/primary school days and it shows because I talk about my primary school so much and recall so much things that even my peers from primary have forgotten. I always weirdly still feel so embarrassed and guilty about things that I did in primary school and I always imagine how things would've been if I hadn't had done those things. I want to be able to enjoy the present like any teen my age is doing and move on from the past, but I have this obsession that is drawing me back to when I was 6-7 years old that I weirdly can't seem to let go off.

Are you struggling with how things are at the moment? Growing up is a big change, and it can be a nice feeling to remember when times were a lot easier such as when you were in primary school where all you had to worry about was singing weird hymns and running around the playground like a lunatic for an hour. However there are loads of great things happening now, and in the future, that when you get to 18 you'll probably start looking back on your memories from secondary school.

There is a difference though from being nostalgic and obsessing, you can't change things that have happened in the past, but you can change how you're acting now and what you have control of in the present - but if you're too busy focusing on what you can't change, you're letting life and opportunities pass you by.
