"Journaling, counseling, reading relevant books, ManKind Project, Codependents Anonymous, talking here or IRL, inner child work... if it's a big enough deal to merit it, try everything in sight til something works."
"I concur with salt. If it's a traumatic event we are discussing, then I would say take the steps you need to put it behind you. In other words, if you cannot alter it then it's probably best to drive on...just my humble opinion."
