I Hold Onto Past Hurts For Too Long...

In the last 4 years or so, I've come across 4 people who have made my life hell -- well, technically they didn't make my life hell.  Only I can do that.  But, these people caught me off guard and hurt me underneath layers that I didn't even know that I had.  And it happened all within a relatively short period of time... one right after the other.  As a result of meeting these people and having to interact with them, I have had some really bruised feelings and am having a hard time getting past their meanness, disrespect, insensitivity, etc.  My mother says that eventually I will get over it... but its possible that it may take years.  Years?!?!?  What?!?!?!  I feel like I need my memory erased...

I can empathise with you cupcake. Just thinking, maybe mother has hurts she doesn't face so she doesn't want to acknowledge the validity of your hurts. So she's just saying get over it, which means you shouldn't expect much sympathy from her. It's just what it is, doesn't mean she's nasty or doesn't love you.<br />

As far as the procession of mean people I can't help you as I have been hurt by people and that pain is as real as it ever was. Something keeps it around, maybe it's just that I never forget things.
