Invented memories. If I don’t like the way something has gone I change my memory of the way things happened, I’ll remove a memory and make a new story. It’s scary to find out.
Yes. I think it’s a tricky, grey area. I think it opens up victims of abuse being told they have lied.
A person I know has simply subconsciously refused to accept certain events in his life he can’t reconcile, and replaced them with “sanitized” versions that cast him in a better light. It’s actually kind of scary coz I was there when those things were going on, and to see the extent that he has “brainwashed” himself is pretty creepy.
I have also lost touch with reality. I prefer my voices. I want to stay safe in my prison. And my voices are childish and cruel.
I don’t know what I want anymore.
The movie “Shutter Island” (2010), featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, provides an interesting illustration of this phenomenon.
