This is very helpful gucdanie. I think that some of us often hold onto the past because it reinforces our self-image as survivors. Without our traumatic back stories we fear that we will lose this status, which we've convinced ourselves is a badge of strength. But is the retelling of our survivor stories really breaking us down and hindering us by miring us in the past?The topic reminds me of my favorite cartoon ..it shows a centaur laying in a psychiatrists office, on the a couch. The therapist is saying stop blaming your parents.
