Memories are something that can be good or they can be bad. I have a lot of great memories from my time as a wife and mother. I really don’t have many good memories about my childhood. I can recall some memories of going on some great vacations but that’s about it.
My memories from my childhood are extremely traumatic. I know everyone says that and I agree to not compare trauma stories. My trauma was being born into a satanic cult. This led to many types of traumatic events. Today I have been having a ton of new memories (my mind created an amnesia wall). So having those memories come into my consciousness is so overwhelming and exhausting. I’m trying to be patient with myself. I want to just be done with all this crap. I guess that’s why it’s called a recovery in process.
