If I asked my five family members about our trip to the beach, I would get five different accounts of what happened.
So what is true? Was it a sunny day or a cloudy day? Was the water bearable or ice cold? Was it crowded or not? Did we have to walk far from the parking lot? Was it a fun time?
What about the parts that are forgotten? Did they happen? Were they relevant to the experience?
The details of our lives are not necessarily important. We have countless forgotten and misremembered memories. What is relevant is how we felt at the time and how we feel now. Understanding and healing happens through those feelings.
