Never Say This To A Trauma Survivor #shorts

Discover the truth about trauma and the power of validation. Invalidating someone’s experiences by saying phrases like “It could’ve been worse” or “Others have had it worse” is not helpful—it only makes them feel guilty for expressing their emotions. According to Psych Central, traumatic invalidation can damage self-worth and mental health, hindering the healing process. No matter the size of the trauma, it is valid. Let’s create a safe space where we acknowledge and validate each other’s experiences, regardless of age, gender, socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Your trauma is valid, and so is everyone else’s.
