There Was This One Thing
... a long time ago, that hurt me *so* badly, it was really embarrassing because I'd just blurt out my story of it randomly and get really upset, and then feel stupid about it afterwards. This happened for years, which shows just how hurt I actually was. I didn't recover from this hurt "properly" for almost twenty years. Yes, twenty. What a large chunk of my life, dragged down by it :( Ah well, getting past it finally. I'm not going to talk about the details though. Nope.
