Thank you - I love the openness with which you write.

I don't think you are weak or weird in the slightest. It makes complete sense that your process of healing is not limited to you as a rational adult.

The developing child who knew no different, who depended on her care-givers to teach her trust self-respect, self-love and self-worth but who was denied these things - as adults, as we process these early experiences we do so within a wider context - we rationalise - and thus leave out the fact that as children we didn't have that wider context. I think in order to deal with these traumas we need to return to our childhood and reprocess what happened within the context as we experienced them at the time.

You said in your earlier post that somethings are best left alone - stirring up past memories unnecessarily - and likewise, too much too soon makes life unbearable. But when these repressed traumas surface in adult life as anxiety, depression, nightmares etc. then it is time to free ourselves from them.

I think you and your T are great.

Take care,
