We've all had experiences that we just couldn't experience because they were too painful, our survival was at stake, we were too developmentally immature to process them, they were too horrific and so on. But whatever caused our traumas, the end result is still the same: unexperienced experience. We need to find a way to experience these experiences or life will find a way to get us to experience them.
Many times, we need to have a crisis in order to address what has gone unaddressed. It becomes too easy to ignore our pain, minimise it, distract from it, even with "good" stuff, until it becomes a mountain that is. Until the symptoms/conditions we have start to make our lives so uncomfortable that we're forced to deal with our hurt/unexperienced experiences. Let's start feeling again, slowly and gently.
