Hello, friends. In this episode, I answer two very different but important questions relating to moving forward from a traumatic childhood full of abuse and dealing with anxious behaviors which are impacting your relationships.
I was sexually abused as a child for years, and have been raped multiple times during my pre-teen and teenage years while experiencing physical and mental abuse from my mother, I have started talking about it more finally at 21 yo, I have been going to therapy since I was 15 but never brought any of that up since last year but my biggest hurdle is the repression of almost all of my childhood and some of my teenage years.
Do you have any advice on how to be at peace with all of my unanswered questions of memories? It is so hard hearing my siblings talk about good memories with me involved and I can’t recall them. And to not be able to explain the trauma when I don’t remember 90% of it, feeling like people will always think I’m lying since I can’t think of details.
