I had someone recently tell me "I'm so glad you got through this!" I really didn't know what to say. I am not "getting through this" and sometimes that's frustrating. Everyone automatically thinks if you "look good", everything is OK.
One the one hand, I don't want people feeling sorry for me or being pessimistic. But I also find it frustrating when people just blow it off like it's nothing. "Oh you're going to be just fine." Waves hand dismissively.
It's a difficult thing to deal with at times. I'd like to know others thoughts on this.
