Another Popup!

You’re invalidating them!  You want to know why people don’t come to you when they have a problem, especially kids and adolescents? You are either invalidating their feelings or making them feel shame for it happening.   This is from my experience and things I was literally told.   Boys will be boys. Who else is

It’s a unicorn.

What is empathy?  What is sympathy? How are they different? To sympathize with someone is to feel sorry for them, almost a pity in my opinion. Empathy, on the other hand, is to feel their pain with them. You aren’t shaming them for their pain; you are compassionate about it.   Now, it’s been a few days since I wrote that. I was doing homework, and with my 100 tabs open in my head, I got a popup! 

Defeated. Self-Sabotage. 

In my reflections post about everything that’s been going on with me recently regarding personal and school.   I feel so defeated…   Was there a point in writing a letter to the dean or the chair of my concerns? Was there a point in trying to be heard? They talk about the rights of those with disabilities, but are those for the obvious?   I have several mental illnesses.
