I hope everyone has managed to have some enjoyment from Christmas, whether it was much needed rest, understanding from family or friends, a good social occasion, lovely food or gifts or just the relief of it all being over for another year!
I have found myself recently remembering things from my past which have not crossed my mind in many years. Perhaps I blocked them out or maybe passing days and other happenings pushed them from my mind. It has been both distressing and delightful to revisit these things. People I spent time with who are no longer with us and others who are no longer in my life. I have recalled incidents and events which brought comfort, joy, excitement and other which caused despair, pain and desolation. I can find no real reason for all this to be foremost in my mind of late...it is almost as if I am taking a reckoning of my life. There is nothing sinister in this as far as my present health or situation is concerned yet I wonder if perhaps, at last, I am starting to look at the past to explain the present. I have been offered CBT but declined when I was told that it would be six sessions maximum and I felt that I would just have time to start opening wounds with no time to analyse and accept, never mind heal. I think it may be time to find some way to access such a service again. Has anyone else found themself picking over the past quite out of the blue and is there any reason for it happening now? Any thoughts would be welcome.
