Validation is Everything

validation-is-everything

I hear you, mama...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Even if other people have experienced worse.

Even if someone else who went through the same experience doesn’t feel debilitated by it.

Even if it could have been avoided.

Even if it happened a long time ago.

Even if no one knows.

Your trauma is real and valid, and you deserve a space to talk about it.

It isn’t desperate or pathetic or attention-seeking.

It’s self-care.

It’s inconceivably brave.

And regardless of the magnitude of your struggle, you are allowed to take care of yourself by processing and unloading some of the pain you carry.

Your pain matters.

Your experience matters.

Your healing matters.

Nothing and no one can take that away. Validation is a powerful tool when working with clients who experience birth trauma. Their trauma is real and deserves a safe place to talk about it.
