There are people I try to spend time with, too, who say those things and sometimes it feels like they don't know what we mean. My father is one who says it and has been abandoned by a spouse as I have, so it shocks me to hear.
Do you think sometimes, that people don't know what else to say or do?
One person actually gave me this advice: "Sometimes it is okay to simply pretend things are okay..." all I could do was stare back at here-no words would come.
Yes, I agree and find triggers still raw. They can come out of nowhere, can't they?
I'm sorry that this happened to you and hope that over time, you will find peace.
