Memory
« on: November 23, 2018, 06:14:37 PM »
When I was told by two of my abusers (parents) that "something bad might have happened (to me), but it was time to forgive and forget and get on with life", I made a tremendous effort to forget, but the only possible way was to block out much of my childhood and teenage years, including the good stuff, like my vivid and colourful memories of nature and being out in nature. A lot of memories have come back bit by bit, but not the vivid colourful good stuff. It's as if I've lost the ability to have colourful memories.

For some reason I ended up on this Memory thread today. That reminded me that in the past few days colourful memories and even pleasant smell memories have been coming back :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: It's totally innocuous stuff from outside in the garden. It feels huge to me because those memories have been buried for a few decades.
