It pisses me off that everyone says that shit. NO, there are many things that you just don’t forget or are able to “get over.” First of all, it’s not a choice. NO ONE wants to be traumatized nor do we want to be mentally screwed up over shit that’s happened in the past.
Like say for example a girl gets raped. Do you tell her to “just get over it” bc it’s “the past”? FFS
People who say that are shitty uncaring people, and have NEVER experienced trauma or horrendous things. If they did, they’d know that it’s not easy to “just get over it” or that it’s even a choice. They seriously think people who are abused, raped, or traumatized or whatever has happened to them CHOOSES to be miserable and depressed.
Like WTF is wrong with people that they think depressed ppl CHOOSE to be depressed? Like literally NO ONE ever fucking chooses to be depressed. And if we are depressed, it’s bc we CHOOSE to be miserable and unhappy.
I wish everyone in the world would experience some deep pain for a week or a month so they’d fucking understand. What is lacking in this world is some empathy, compassion and understanding.
