Validation

Wow. This morning I read a really honest blog post by someone discussing their feelings about a break-up and their reaction to subsequent events.

There were a bunch of respondent comments.

To paraphrase, they all said:

That’s not what I would feel so you’re wrong

You can’t change what you feel. And other people sure as heck can’t change what you feel. What you do, yes, and some people would perhaps argue that even discussing what you feel is therefore irrelevant….

I don’t need people to be like me. I don’t need to invalidate them.
