There have been several studies and observations on the fact that the mind tends to spare the individual from unpleasant experiences, There are several examples where people have gone into a coma or suffered acute memory loss or amnesia when the body has been subjected to some form of shock. There are many individuals who have blocked off unpleasant experiences from their memories totally. These experiences could be related to their interactions with someone, their ill-treatment at the hands of their parents, siblings or relatives or even some major accident or injury.
