Right of way at a two way stop sign? (RESOLVED based on IOWA legislation)

我们,是否都在为童年疗伤?

年初当我忧郁症很糟时我和心理医生谈到我童年和成长的一切不幸. 他说每个人或多或少都在为童年疗伤. 童年是我们最需要呵护和爱的时候. 但许多人的童年恰恰是最无助最受伤害的时候. 这种伤害对不同的人照成很不同的影响. 有些人选择自暴自弃放弃前途. 有些人变得过分内向,很难沟通. 而有些对他来说几乎是奇迹现象会很成功很正常,几乎无法想像会有不幸的童年. 他很赞美我的表现,认为我是属于奇迹的一类.但我不知道这种赞美我是否可以接受. 无论表面上多么的成功正常,内心深处的痛楚与针扎不是可以完全抹去的.时间可以帮助淡忘但无法消除. 有些话题还是无法碰触. 从某个角度上来讲,我们是很孤独的. 没有许多人愿意倾听伤心往事.就算愿意,真正了解理解的又有几个? 因为得不到知音,我们就深藏一些很重要的情感. 在失眠的夜里,日记里涂写着. 所以我在这里写着. 因为有些童年和成长的点滴还是会在我脑海里浮现,提醒着我我人生中很难弥补的缺陷和让我深夜难眠的不安.
