My sister was strong enough to view the house burning down as a bad experience. I caved in to it and celebrated the whole destructiveness of it.
Sounds somewhat traumatic to be honest with you.
Yes, but I was too weak to recognize the trauma.
People respond to trauma in different ways. Best thing to do is not to blame yourself for however you reacted.
Yeah, my friend stopped by when I was in a car accident and I was really hurt when he said “Don’t get upset.” The car is totaled, I’m shaken up and I’m not supposed to get upset? Not likely, but I suppressed the upset like he asked.
Yes, this is an old school way of repressing feelings. Almost any response is acceptable.
oh that’s weird… how can you not get upset when that just happened to you…
