If you find yourself telling a victim of abuse that your perception of their experience is more important than their actual experience, understand that you’re contributing to the culture that keeps abuse survivors from speaking up. You’re part of the reason battered spouses stay and rape victims don’t file charges.
But the good news is that you can stop. You can learn. And I hope that you do. Because the world doesn’t need more of that garbage.
