Past Trauma & Depression: Thoughts on Cognitive Therapy, Bringing up the Past
My first question is where is everybody? I guess it is summer and people go away and get out and about which is all good stuff. Anyways it is always good to hear from our members. I love it when you guys write shareposts and let us know what is going on in your life. So give a holler if you are out there.
Okay so it is time for a new question. My question this week comes from my current experience in therapy. I have a brand new therapist and he wants to delve all into my past. And I do want to discuss those things but I am a little afraid to tell you the truth. It takes a lot out of you to go to places of trauma even if they are just through memories.
My question for all of you is...do you feel that you can ever put the past behind you? Can one get closure on past traumas? What does it mean to be at peace with the past? Can you ever truly let go?
I am very interested in how you all have coped with your past traumas. When you share your experiences you help others and that is what it is all about. Thank you to all who participate in these discussions.
