Discernment, wisdom, rational thinking, empathy…. are all required to have a decent opinion. Especially about issues related to complex trauma.
There are some people who ‘get it’. And many who do not. Yet, they will voice their opinions anyway.
I have learned to ignore them. Mostly. But, when they come from people who are significant in my life, they hurt. And that’s okay – because the person mattered. And when people matter, anything harmful they do, does hurt. That’s normal.
I can also now choose to accept their issues are actually theirs. I know that now.
