Default Intrusive Memories

I was doing so well and rarely haveintrusive memories aymore of being abused. I went through phsical and sexual abuse and I still have lots of fears from that but not so many intrusive memories. The odd part is more reent events that I have been hurt in intrude into my mind constantly. It's a pain. I am not depressed but it's hard to stay they way when the thoughts keep nagging at me. It seems whenever I start to feel happy the thoughts stick to my mind. I can move on with my life but there is still a part of me that wants to teach a lesson of respect and listening to those who hurt me more recently (the past couple years).

i truly understand what you mean. there are so many times when i just wanna forget and move on, but i what i really want to do is yell and hit those that hurt me.

i have a hard time understanding why people harm each other cause i never do (intentionally). i never understand why there have people who hurt me, but treat others like gold. why? this in particular has been bothering me like crazy lately.

Thanks for the reply. Hugs! Sorry to hear you've been through so much that you too understand these feelings. :(

That is exactly how it's been for me. Growing up I was bullied at school and abused at home and to top it off I was always being told I was bad and evil and my brother was so good. Even though I didn't bully or make fun of anyone and I always tried to help and be kind. got this from my brother as well.


I've had the same thing in one relationships. Mainly from someone who suffers delusions and thinks he's the only good person in the world and tells me how awful I am all the time. That resorted to violence in the extreme.

Then I start seeing this pattern. People who abuse and are cruel to others saying they are good and I am bad. It makes me sick these people. They think it's alright to hurt others and I stand up and defend the abused and suddenly I'm bad. I'm not bad because I did the right thing but because I told the truth. So I end up having my life threatened and people turn on me because of lies or insecurity.

So yes. The past I am managing much better but I think it's seeing similar patterns repeated that causes these intrusive thoughts. Maybe if I hadn't been through so much in the past it wouldn't bother me when similar things happen now.
