my mum has an obsession with “getting over” things. Last night I dissociated and had flashbacks to being assaulted and my mum very gently said “You need to stop living in the past and move on now”. Like not the most helpful thing to do really
My mum does that too! It just makes no sense. I read your post about it and it’s so true that the whole “just get over it” line really isn’t helpful at all. And I completely agree that it actually does isolate the other person. It’s crazy how it seems that some people don’t seem to understand that.
I’m sorry to hear about what happened though. There are some things that I think no one can ever quite recover from. But I’m glad that you’ve been doing well lately.
But I really do want to thank you for your comments. Being able to relate to them has helped, and I appreciate it. It’s encouraging in it’s own way.
