Three decades later....

Three decades after a life changing experience I find myself reflecting and reacting. Every life choice after this experience has been influenced by it until this last decade.
I had to choose the better of the worst in every situation and barely made it out in one piece.
I am in a very stable life now. Genuinely happy and supported and recently started feeling intense mood swings. Having acknowledged the life experience I survived I have settled down.
I'm wary the mood swings will come back. I'm hoping this realisation is all it was.
I was thinking about writing anything that comes up down. I breath when realisations/memories arise. All this seems to be working so far.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
