A traumatic memory can be like an unwanted spam email that keeps clogging your inbox and getting in the way of your real life and work. You delete it, archive it, move it, mark it as spam, unsubscribe, but it just keeps popping up. When you try to open a different email, that means an old spam email pops up instead. How can you get rid of it?
