I have a only a few select memories of my childhood & i'm now wanting to know why? I have always been mistrusting and fearful of men. I am going to have some counselling and they said there are ways to help me remember that aren't guaranteed. Many of you may ask, do I really want to know? but this has been affecting my life, still to this day. I have children and I don't want them to ever pick up on any issues, that I have with men. I want them to have healthy relationships. There's a lot that has lead me here, it isn't just that I have no memory for a young age. Can anyone relate/help?

Hello

I have very little memories of my childhood either. For me it was because I was severely abused but this may not be the case for you. I also had the issue of do I want to know but cane to the conclusion that to move on I need to accept what happened and work through it
