Unfortunately it is not just me that is insulted when someone says " Your trauma must have really screwed you up" as an insult ( He has followed me around looking for dirt) trying to bait me. I cannot be pushed into fear or insulted into going away. I lived through far much worse to be bothered by someone as subtle as a turd in a punch bowl.
However, the comment is hurtful to all survivors or victims of violence, rape and abuse, regardless of age, race, creed, socio economic levels. That is a disgusting display of secondary wounding, shoving ppl back into the shadows for crimes that were done TO THEM.
Do not give into bad thoughts or guilty feelings or judgemental crap from others. You survived for a reason. You did what you had to, to survive. It may not feel like it is worth it at times. It may hurt to see tv shows, or hyperbole by pundits who know nothing about what it is to live through what you have. You are loved. You are important and you matter. Much love to you my brothers and sisters in this fight!
