I always feel like what I’m feeling is wrong since it happened some time ago. It kinda gets in the way when I try to reach out for help. Does anyone else get the same self invalidation?

    Absolutely. There's a sense in society today that if you're not still visibly scarred or physically bleeding or bruised from what happened to you, then it "doesn't count." What we survivors know is that time provides distance from our trauma; and, our trauma is still with us, that we still carry it, and that it's absolutely still valid. 💕
