I can really relate to this.
For example, in school, I had my first heartbreak. We were together for eight months before I found out he was cheating. The girl he was seeing had been with him no more than six weeks. But she went crying to MY group of friends about it. When I talked about it, they told me to "let it gooo!" and "moooove oooon!" But she would cry to them about it and they would listen to her! I said "she was only with him for six weeks, tops!" They said "well different people are affected by the same thing differently."
So then why are they so exasperated with me for being upset, if different people are affected by the same thing differently? Wouldn't that include me?
That's just one of many examples. I have examples from school, from work, etc. throughout life.
That's why I'm such a loner and a hermit now.
