Just Get Over It?

It is emotionally disrespectful to tell people to "just get over it" whatever "it" is. It's the psychological equivalent of telling someone with cancer, heart disease...or even a cold... to just get over it.

Telling people to "just move on" is similarly disrespectful. Like physical healing, it takes time for emotions to restore their equilibrium. Like many physical conditions, sometimes they will never heal.

There are no "silly emotions" or "wrong feelings." Let's us stop emotional putdowns. Let us respect each other's feelings.
