Resolved Question:

I grew up with alcoholic parents where there was severe emotional and physical abuse. At age 11 I did inappropriate things with cousins I was supposed to be babysitting but do not recall specifics. I also recall being at an aunt's house at age 9 or 10 with other cousins and them being mean to me and a "bribe" type incident sexual in nature, but do not recall what that was. Why do I keep repeating what I did as a child and what happened to me as a child and it keeps replaying itself in my mind?

Based on your post, you are experiencing ruminating thoughts based on your experiences. What I mean by this is that you repressed the memories of what happened with your cousins and that the few details you remember is causing you strife, thus, you are trying to resolve those thoughts.
