@jesfactsmon Interesting information as I'm experiencing past childhood traumas that keep reliving themselves and have been questioning why now, why one trauma after another as not allowing me to ever forget and in my mind sixties.
A therapist has said traumas reveal themselves when we're ready to deal with it. Hmm…I wonder

@marjou Yes, hmmmmm. Not knowing the exact context I'm not sure what the therapist meant precisely. I do feel that the hurts that were within me, and had been there from 7 years old until late thirties (when I dealt with them) could have been accessed anytime if the proper methods had been used. That was me. I had a particular level and type of hurt. I was not DEEPLY abused. I grew up in a basically loving family, or at least one in which no one except my 3 year older brother was intentionally trying to hurt me. The hurt he laid on me was part of what I worked on. (As a side note, he became a great guy as an adult and has profusely apologised to me for what he did as a kid). But I am sure lot's of people had much worse harm done to them that I did and they might not be able to address their hurt without professional therapy. Best, Hank
