Always the case, isn't it. When you are trying to get over something, consciously or subconsciously, when you least expect it, the memories will come flooding - overwhelmingly and unapologetically. God help me if I am not able to deal with this, or even something as little as distancing myself emotionally from it. The floodgate of the memories I thought I have banished into the darkest corners of my brains comes rushing in the moments where I am least prepared - like when waking up in the morning, like one of the very first things that come to my mind as soon as I open my eyes is this very issue I am in the process of overcoming.
And that is precisely the point, is it not? Because I am overcoming it, because I want to overcome it, it surfaces when I least expect it because I have been suppressing it for so long?
It's gonna be a long journey and I say, bring it on.
