Fear of forgetting my past
« on: January 11, 2014, 07:39:40 PM »
I am 33 years old. As I look back on my childhood, all I can see are what I call "snapshots". Small bits of things and single moments in time. Really don't remember much before 4th grade. Is this normal? I feel like I need to sit down and start typing out my snapshots just so I don't forget them.

I can't say that my childhood was horrible, yet at I can't say it was always happy. My therapist has me questioning if I was abused or anything. However, as hard as I try, I can't remember.

I know the older you get the more you forget. I'm just really worried and wondering if its just one of those stupid things I worry needlessly about.

Just because I understand an acknowledge what I am worrying about is silly, doesn't mean I'm able to stop worrying about it.

I think it's prefectly normal, we're not supposed to focus on our past, but rather what lies in front of us, our goals & desires.
I can barely recall my childhood, my 1st-8th grade memories are just a blur with some rare moments that I can recall & I'm only 21, it doesn't bother me though, I still like to reminisce from time to time, but I don't pay that much attention to things that have already happened, I've already experienced them, so I put them behind me.
