Invalidating someones experience
Content Header .feed_item_answer_user .anon_user.logged_out . There are no legitimacies to it beyond maybe fostering some perspective.Validation shows the other person that they are important.Whether the person being validated is a child, a significant other, a spouse, a parent, a friend, or an employee, validation communicates that they are important to you and you care about their thoughts and feelings and experiences.
In my experience, the results are well-worth the effort.Your internal experience does not have to be the same as anyone else’s but it helps to know that your experiences is understandable. Some say it’s because when we don’t feel understood it creates thoughts of being left out or not fitting in.
