My best friend died of cancer when I was 12. I was dropped off by myself and spoke at her funeral. After the service the minister said that the burial was only for family and the close friends that had been invited. I hadn't been so my 12 year old brain convinced me that I had done something wrong. It took until I was in my 30s to come to grips with it and realize it was just her mother being overwhelmed by everything. Caused me to deal with death in a very different way that still effects me to this day. I'm now 40

I accidentally started my house on fire. More specifically all of my clothes.

Two days after her passing I was sexualy harassed by my aunt's husband and thought that was my punishment but I know that's not true but I still haven't told anyone

So I was molested like I don't know how many times I forgot I don't even know like I was only seven but the major one I told and it was always my fault my fault so like the other ones I never said anything about because you're seven years old and you're getting blamed for something you have no idea what's going on so as I grew older I always felt like something was my fault and so I didn't know how to have relationships I didn't know what to do in a situation because I would always think that you know I was doing something wrong anyways and so as I got older I've always looked for love in the wrong places and so now it's just hard to even be in a relationship or trust anybody because I got raped four years ago and I was scared to tell anybody because I was like Thinking it was my fault and so I finally went to the hospital and yeah I just it triggers you in a way that people just don't know like and I have PTSD I have so much PTSD from different things and it just sucks
