However minor anyone might judge your experience to be, it is valid. It is not "not serious enough". You do not have to forget it. You do not have to laugh it off. You do not have to get over it. No one has the right to tell you how to feel about it. If you are able to brush it off, then great. But you do not have to. You are not trivialising my experience. You are helping me understand that I am not alone.
