I love the beach ball analogy. It is good that you had this realization and that your life is better for it.

Yeah, me too! I heard or read about it somewhere, long ago. I think it was a Dr Phil metaphore, but I’m not sure.

Heavy. I think I am a natural talent or a very simple soul. I live my life as the flow goes.

Good for you!
As I understand it and have experienced it, we cannot go through childhood without (unintently) being traumatized. When a child encounters something threatening, something it doesn’t understand, it needs to repress in order to survive emotionally, because it cannot handle the implications. As a result, we spend most of our adult life unconsciously avoiding whatever traumatized us as a child.
I am always alerted when I overreact to a certain event. Because when we encounter whatever caused our trauma our reaction will most likely be not age appropriate. A part of our emotional development came to a halt when the trauma occurred and the same event still hurts as if we were three or five. Until we are willing to live through our childhood traumas, we will constantly relive the pain.
