i feel like my past comes back to haunt me everyday and it’s been around 5 years since everything happened… when does it ever stop
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
I wonder the same thing too. No matter how much I'm able to move forward.. Something always seems to creep up and pull my back again. It wouldn't matter if I "accepted" it or "forgave" myself and try to move on.. I literally.. Struggle with doing so.
Out of fear I hid it from what happened but when I started talking I feel like I took back some power. Also learning it wasn't my fault. I still struggle but that helped.
Ahhh I feel that!! I'm a lot better now, but sometimes I just go back to that moment where it happened.
Luckily, I had the chance to remove the things that I associated with that event!!
@Pearl09 Perhaps that's what I should try? Start talking about those things. They however, are not great things and would have to be handled with care from a PTSD certified counselor. @_@
