To Let Go of Trauma or Not to Let Go?

I related in this way that for me Trauma isn’t something to necessarily get over. It seemed that one aspect of my reticence to “moving on” was that I sensed that letting it go is just one of our less humane American cultural influences. Something is broken. Let it go. Get a new one. That cultural dogma has pissed me off for years. To me it’s about, “If it’s broken, fix it. If it can’t be fixed maybe it still has some sentimental value and so I might just keep it for that reason.”
