This is what I was addressing. Whether causing someone to feel shame because I don’t believe what they’re saying (keeping in mind that their post had absolutely nothing to do with me; was not addressed to me; did not mention me, etc.) is something I could do, intentionally, just because I thought they weren’t truthful…because here’s the thing:
UNLESS I WAS THERE, I CAN’T BE SURE IF THEY’RE LYING OR NOT. AND IF IT’S SOMETHING DEEPLY PERSONAL AND IT TURNS OUT THAT IT ISN’T A LIE, I AM SHAMING SOMEONE LIVING WITH TRAUMA.
I LIVE WITH TRAUMA.
I have no interest in compounding anyone else’s.
That was the point I was trying to make. About how *I* would address the issue. xoxo
