Uncovering The Past - Do I need trauma details to find peace in the present?

I think everyone is different. I have accepted that I am affected by abuse but there are some details that I'm not ready to look at. At the moment, my mental health is pretty good and I feel if I did open myself up to those details, that it wouldn't be. It might be that something in life will force me to address the unaddressed and I will go back to therapy if it does. But for now, I'm doing good.
Not sure. Lived mostly asymptomatic for a long time. Took throwing another one on the pile to really mess things up to the point of the "what the heck is wrong with me? Maybe I need help" moment.

I don't think you need every detail - just as much as it takes to heal.
