I just realised that my brain has blocked out a lot of my childhood because it was traumatic. sometimes, I can think of something that my brain has blocked out and start crying. I want to address my childhood traumas however, I am scared because it is the type of memories I wish I could forget forever.

What do you mean by “address”


- ask others for support

perhaps 'Address' is wrong, but I am unexperienced in all you have mentioned. I honestly do not know how to seek something that would benefit me

Your brain has blocked them out for a reason. Trying to address those things could really destabilise your mental health and cause more harm than good. Think really hard whether it is really something you need to do at this point in your life.

Yeah but if the person is getting flashbacks and it's affecting their present life it could also be a sign they need to move on somehow.

OP you might want to consider therapy/counseling around overcoming trauma. It's hard to do alone if things become too overwhelming but it's possible with some guidance and support pacing it carefully. If you feell 'called' to do this work then it might be needed.

you shouldn't attempt that on your own, without a psychiatrist and a therapist

Yes, I do have unnecessary flashback if I watch something just on youtube or if I am on any social media. it does get me randomly. I feel like it could be a sign to finally address it to move on.
