I frequently have people telling me that my trauma "isn't that bad" and that I just "need a good experience with it." (the reason for my trauma) If anyone else experiences things like this, how do you typically respond?

    Same with me but I'm still trying to understand it

    You should be more direct when you get a comment like hey if wasn't "that bad" then how come I have triggers and flashbacks and so on. Trauma is trauma. Stand your ground. How are you supposed to have a good experience with something that altered your thinking 🤔🤔 there's no way possible that I could go back to that situation and find "good" but then again I don't know your story...basically I'm saying noone can tell you how to deal with your trauma...and you should let them kindly know that
