We all want the best for our loved ones. We want our loved ones to be there for us, too. But when it comes time to be that support system for the ones we care about, we sometimes say things that may feel like they’re helpful, but have the potential to be harmful too. No one ever means it and no one ever wants to give bad advice intentionally, but sometimes when our emotions get into the mix of things, we say things that have a lot more weight than we’re giving consideration for at the time that they’re said.
DON’T say “get over it.” I’ll tell you a secret. Any and every person who’s endured any type of emotional scarring knows damn well they need to get over their hurt. You saying the words “get over it” is like adding kerosene to an already existing fire.
You, the league of angry tweeters and precipitously moral bloggers, have inadvertently given the platform for Caitlyn to stand on and highlight her journey and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

This is the most confusing to me.
We all come from different cultures and backgrounds. That means all of us have different dynamics in our personal family values.
