I often think back to my childhood and discover that my memories are very patchy. Names, faces, school teachers, things related to being a brought up as a dub.
Memories of some years are patchier than others - for example when I was about 10, we moved from the city that we had always lived to a small town, 2 hours drive away - we moved back to the city 3 years later - I remember very little of the first two years in that small town.
I seem to think that the years where the memories are patchy were times when I was quite unhappy. Even my highschool years are quite patchy.
Anyone else experience this?
