Todo había vuelto a hacérsele presente
Please help with the translation of this phrase. The context is this: The person has tried to bury his violent past. But that night, todo había vuelto a hacérsele presente.
I understand it to mean that "everything had returned to make or do..." something I can't figure out.
DR I think it means that the past had come back to hunt him.
todo había vuelto = all had come back
hacérsele presente = became present to him
¡Gracias, Robertico y Jason!
It seems to me that this part is saying that his past is becoming/returning back to his present. Is the character still fighting his past? Just a thought. It seems that his past is coming back to bite him in the butt. Hope this helps.
