Theoretically, I think that every experience and problem we are struggling with shapes us. Some degree of pain and sadness is inscribed in our lives and we will always experience it after all. However, I mean experiencing such sad events, such as the death of a loved one. This is tragic but inevitable.
However, traumatic events, such as abuse or assault, are things that do not happen to everyone and this is probably the worst thing that a person has to deal with, while often completely without coping with it.
I myself have some traumatic experiences that haunt me to this day and I would do a lot without blinking to erase them from memory. It really depends on the person. Some people prefer to be aware of certain events and work through them, while others try to get rid of all memories of a specific incident.
