4:50 6:21 onwards describes everyone siding with and defending the main person at the centre of my Cptsd and other psychological problems without even trying to look at it from my perspective or listen to my side of it and saying similar things which are almost just as hurtful and just bring back all the pain and memories and keep the trauma alive.
Guess I may have more relatability to this song than I thought… maybe that’s why it’s one of my favourites?

It’s never fun to have people around you unwilling/uncapable of grasping/trying to grasp your perspective, and siding with only one side of things. You have every right to feel the way you feel, and deserve to be seen by the people around you. Thanks for sharing your experience and how you relate! Please feel free to share more if you ever want/need. <3

I’m so very sorry that people in your life have sided with someone who hurt you and is at the origin of your complex ptsd. It’s heart shattering already when someone supposed to love and protect you happened to hurt you. It takes such a LOT of tears already, a lot of wasted time, and surviving through bad days to come to the point of acknowledging your traumas and naming it. But it adds such a new layer of pain when other people, whom you trust, take side in favor of the person who did something wrong. It’s like your finally get to the point of daring to share your voice for it to only be silenced and reduced to nothing. It makes you question everything all over again, and at the core of it your ability to trust others with yourself. It feels like an ultimate mark of betrayal, as if people in front of you were navigating through a completely different reality, almost like they were part of a different world. While on your end you know, every single day, the cost of what this person did and of living with the consequences of it. You are the one who knows, you are the one who has to deal with this pain you never asked for… and they dare to deny it. Just brutal.

Dealing myself with complex ptsd, my heart goes out to you so freaking much. Once about a year and half ago, my sister and I confronted our parents to our pain, to the violence we suffered growing up, and their reactions felt like hitting the nail on the coffin. On the positive side, it reinforced my willingness to stay off contact and keep my distances. It reassured this part of my brain that was still feeling loyal to them somehow, that I didn’t have to anymore. But on the other hand, it was certainly one of the most devastating interactions we’ve had all together. It’s hard when you are confronted to the fact that people can be in such denial that they don’t even see you anymore with their own eyes. They fear reality, truth and accountability so much that they prefer to dismiss your pain. Which may or may not be conscious, but the result remains the same: it hurts like hell and feels like absolute betrayal when you are the one who needs support and recognition.

If anything, I see you and I hear you today. Your pain is valid, no matter what anyone would say to dismiss that reality. When doing so, what they express are their struggles, their inability to cope with such brutal reality. But it doesn’t say anything about you, about your story, and even less about the validity of how you feel. I hear and understand the subtlety of the pain that resides behind the term “c-ptsd”, and even though we don’t know each other, you certainly have my full support as you are learning to reclaim your life and as you share your voice. Thank you for doing it here, thank you for making it through dark days, thank you for trying and pursuing in living a life that will feel safe and fulfilling for you. You deserve all the best. Hold fast. :heart:

This all very much ties into my comment on the “the devil in I” reaction video, so while I can understand why they wouldn’t want to believe me and see this totally different side to the person that was kept behind closed doors and was really only shown when no one else was around, it’s still very frustrating…
so glad I have my friend that has been able to see the truth and is willing to let me vent to her as much as I need. It Can definitely be a big help😂@@HeartSupport
