Have You Ever Been Told To Just Get Over It?

“Do you understand
That if enough trauma happens on any level of the being
You can’t just get over it
Anymore than you can if you get in a high speed car crash.
If somebody got in a high speed car crash at 70 miles an hour
And they’re like broken
And I walk up to them on the street
And I say just get over it
Do you realize how cruel that would be?
We understand the cruelty on a physical level
Where is the understanding of that on an emotional level.
It’s not possible.”

With rare exceptions that’s not how it works.
