From: What response do you want/what do you want to hear

Posted by turnip , 13 March 2013 · 20 views

This is a great topic.

Validation is big for me. Lots of days I still don't "believe" I was abused. There are things about my story that make me feel like I should doubt myself (no memories, stable family, didn't grow up in fear, to name a few).

I want to hear that you believe what happened hurt me, that I'm not just making a big deal out of something small. I want to hear that you don't think I'm weak. Wow...that took me by surprise. I guess what I really want to hear is that you think I am strong. That I am strong and brave. I guess that would be the ultimate validation.
