24 'Harmless' Comments That Actually Hurt Childhood Trauma Survivors
"It’s important to remember what may seem “harmless” to one person may actually be hurtful to another. No matter what anyone says, your feelings are valid, and you deserve support."
“ Just because my mom was loving when I was born doesn’t mean she’s off the hook for the abuse she inflicted when I was a child and teenager. Just because there are others who “had it worse” than I did doesn’t mean what I experienced wasn’t painful. And coming to terms with my past trauma doesn’t mean I’m “being negative” or “living in the past.””
