Reliving Memories

by Shane
(Location Undisclosed)

I wasn't abused as a child, but as of late I keep reliving memories of the violence I witnessed between my parents and siblings to the point where I am going over it in my head every day. I worry that what I saw has had an impact on me and I wonder if I would have been a different person if my past had been different. Generally I don't speak much and can go for several days without saying a word. People find me strange maybe but I can't help it. I am harmless and I do try to think about my experiences positively. Reliving memories still hurts me though and I feel like the wound will never close. I feel like my sensitivity will never callous over.


I have a lot of respect for the people who have been through child abuse because they are worth very much, much more than they know. They have life experience that lots of people don't have and that maybe they can harness to help others. They may have old souls even if they are young but they are beautiful souls too. There is nothing wrong with having a wise soul.

I wanted to post on here several times before but I was too scared. May I note I have used an alias name.
