This is one area where the cult of celebrity really can help. We should be celebrating those who have come forward to tell their stories on a global scale. Because the only way we can remove the stigma is by encouraging everyone to talk about how they feel.
Rather than reacting impulsively with unhelpful consequences, we can CHOOSE a more helpful and positive response. I like to walk away, get out of the situation, because staying will not calm me down. Getting away and doing something else can make me calm down.
