When one confronts a victim of false memory the only option is to walk away. To dare to challenge, to try to prove the memory is false will only provoke repetition and belligerence.
The question of course; is How do you know this is a false memory?
When someone you barely know begins to spill their deepest secrets a trumpet should go off. Why are they revealing these secrets? Why do they want you to know?
Here you are, sitting in a club. Up comes someone you don’t know. Within minutes you, a stranger, are being told how s/he was sexually abused by….
The first thing, (although rather rude) is why should you care? Why were you chosen to be this receptacle? You may never see this person again, nor want to. You have no connection to whatever happened.
You are being told because to survive, a false memory needs to be repeated over and over again to cement it in the history.
The fact a stranger is sharing the most secret and painful aspects of themselves is the evidence it is false memory.
