    I wish I’d be able to erase certain memories. I hate the flashbacks.

    • I hate flashbacks too, but I try to see them as healing tools, flashbacks are signs of undealt with emotions because of a traumatic experience.It’s something I’ve been struggling with a lot lately and it’s tough so I can relate to your pain but my best advice is to try and self soothe yourself-repeating ”I’m safe now”, It happened and it hurt but I’m safe now and trying to diminish the fear of seeing those memories , grounding yourself and trying to not get lost in the emotions but recognising them validating them but that’s not the situation you are in now and reminding yourself of that, you survived and although those memories hurt,facing them can help take the power out of them. *hugs*
