As a survivor of trauma I get all kind of really brain dead comments and questions. The ignorance level of the majority of these comments never ceases to amaze me while pissing me off at the same time. Why on earth can’t people at the very least keep their stupidity about this subject to themselves?
Here is a few things I want to say to these people besides “Go to hell you ignorant moron!”
DO NOT treat me like I am inferior to you. I am in no way inferior to anyone just because I happened to have experienced trauma. So DO NOT treat me like I am.
DO NOT treat me like I am greater than you. Surviving trauma does not make me greater than you just because I survived a trauma. I hate it when people do that to me.
NEVER tell me to just overcome the trauma. You can either be a help in healing the trauma or you can hinder the healing process. Trauma of both the body and mind take time and treatment to heal. Just because body trauma may be healed don’t mean the mental and emotional has healed. The trauma that is not seen is often the hardest and most painful to heal. DO NOT make comments or judgments about how I should heal the wounds the eyes cannot see.
Never ask me how I handle an aggressive person. Why on earth would you ask such a stupid question? You just may experience something that you wish you had not experienced with that question.
Just because someone has been through trauma does not mean we are any more human or any less human that everyone else. Why not treat us like you would everyone else? STOP stomping us down or putting us on a pedestal. We are just humans just like everyone else.
Instead of asking stupid questions why not just give me a hug? Why not just say “what you went through must have been difficult to endure” Then you could say something like. “I am glad to see to you are healing your trauma” Comments like that build us up, include us as human and encourages us. The stupid questions makes us feel separated and not included. That of of stupidity pisses me off.
So stop showing your stupidity! It is viewed as stupid as if your paints was left unzipped. And I don’t want to see your tiny brain anymore than I want to see your tiny wiener. So zip up your stupidity and keep it out of my face. And feel free to go to hell while you are at it.
