How do you answer the question "why can't you let the past go and move forward?" when every day you are confronted with the same control, manipulation and lack of respect that has always been there? You try to explain how those events trigger the same feelings inside of you and the response is always "you're still living in the past" and "you need to move forward like I have".

How do you respond when the other person blames you for still living in the past when you are so emotionally hurt that you can't forget.......How can you do it?
