WARNING ATTEMPTED MURDER: My mom blacked out and tried to kill my dad by stabbing when I was four. my twin blocked it out, my mom literally can't remember, my dad doesn't care to talk about it and my other two siblings were old enough to process but didn't see it. every part is etched into my memory and any time I want to discuss it, it's hard bc I'm the only one who remembers. and it still haunts me and I'm 26. I try the inner child thing but I want to cry just looking at me. I was so young and scared. how do you process something like that 22 years later?

    Just concentrate on yourself. Weird situations arise. You choose your own way.

    I am getting back into therapy. I am struggling again with something that happened over 30 years ago. Not sure if you've tried therapy yet. There are even online options.

    You dont need to look in to the past except to figure out what qualities you are best capable of.

    Honestly? Don't. I've always dealt with those kinds of memories by actively battling the self-gaslighting I'm prone to, the thing happened and there was nothing I could do about it then, but I know what I'd do now if it happens again. You don't have to torture yourself by reliving those memories over and over. It's been 22 years. You're allowed to put it in the vault
