I received a message, about my Thank You Sisters blog post.
When it starts off with “I read your blog…”
I’m like yay! Excited that people actually read what I have to say!
But their comment turned sour…
Telling me that I should not have talked badly about my childhood “it wasn’t that bad.” My father and grandmother would be “distraught” if they read it.
The self doubt demons crept in. There were good times in my childhood too. Maybe I am over overexaggerating?
Soon snapped out of this mindset slaying those demons with the Truth. My Truth.
They didn’t even know me when I was growing up. But even if they did, telling someone that their bad experience isn’t “that bad”, is extremely toxic, it’s called gaslighting.
No matter how big or small, your trauma is, the feelings that arise from it are valid.
Remember that you can never Fully understand Anyone, other than Yourself. As you are not in their brain and have not walked their footsteps. Question your own reality. Not other people’s!
If my family are disappointed in what I wrote. This is their ego talking. Know that when I share what happened, it allows me to process and heal. My well being comes before their reputation.
I have forgiven, but I will not forget. It’s My story and it Made me who I am.
This is BIG Mouth Naomi! Where I write whatever I Want. I will share more about my life, so if you can’t handle it, don’t read it!
