I just had a ‘friend’ tell me I should stop feeling sad and focus on what I have in my life that’s good – like she does.
Shaming attitude right there. And someone who considers themselves ‘better’ in the way they view life.
But, in fact, she is absolutely wrong. Because suppressing normal and needed human emotions – is what’s unhealthy.
And this ‘advice’ is when I only heard my mother died 3 weeks ago.
Yep…. 3 weeks.
Apparently 3 weeks is too long and I should be ‘over it’ by now and should be ‘focussing on the good’ and blah blah blah….
All this shows to me, is this person has zero insight into healthy grieving. Has zero empathy. Has zero capacity to think rationally. Has an entitled attitude to make someone already suffering – suffer some more. As shaming people like to do.
This is exactly the kind of unhealthy societal rhetoric, that encourages me all the more, to keep writing about unhealthy beliefs and why people need to stop.
