and it is all tragic...I think plenty of children experience this.
Then there are the ones who experience entirely different traumas, like their parents all dying in Africa from disease.
Or having Israeli police spray their schools down with liquefied human effluent every day for months.
Or parents that neglect to notice the friends older kids have been sexually abusing their young children.
Or the 100's of thousands of male babies that were circumcised and have no idea where their trauma came from.
Or even the millions of parents who teach their children that magic is just a disappoint by lying to them about Santa and Fluffy Bunny.
Some of the stuff people would put at the top of the list as being 'bad' are actually identifiable, which ought mean they are able to be over come. Other stuff, I can even hear people sniggering about now, is not considered, therefore you can't fix what is unknown or repressed.
We can't forgive that which we don't identify. Does it still have an effect on psyche? I am sure it can. And it will be ridiculed as nothing, even by those who would offer compassion on other instances.
So, if there is a positive, which is always the aim to seek, surely.. the positive is when one can identify their particular trauma, then they can overcome it. But, well plenty don't want to it seems. They will let resentment become part of their motivation. I have seen many many people who claim to have over come their demons, but often they have just repressed them or dressed them up as reasons to feel validated for other behaviours.
