In my last update on Pause to Breathe, I talked about how I had forgotten an incident that was important to my story. This post is somewhat a continuation of that one.
I had concluded on the note that my brain has buried more memories than I can ever think.
A couple of days ago, I recalled another incident that I was not planning to put into my story.
I want to honest with the story, then why was I planning to skip it?
My brain has killed the “most important” detail of the incident.
The “WHAT?” question.
In September 2017, somebody had tried to cross my boundaries. I remember a lot of the things that happened before and after the incident. I remember my reaction and those of others. But I don’t remember WHAT that person had said to me. What they said makes the incident important.
I have stressed a lot but I can’t recall it. It’s probably because what they said was so harsh for me at that time that my mind decided to block it by erasing it.
I don’t want to reach out to the primary witnesses of the incident because their inaction hurt me too.
Do you think the “WHAT” question is always important?
Do you think my reaction to the incident is worthy of sharing without having the answer to the “WHAT” question?
