hey, i was going through my answered asks and i came across an ask where somebody asked if being rejected repeatedly counted as a trauma. i answered yes, because i was assuming they meant rejected as in neglected by their parents or bullying, however it has now come to my attention, looking back at the ask, that i should have specified that being rejected romantically is not trauma.
i was going through the notes of this ask and a lot of people were upset by it, and rightfully so.
i should have put more time and care into answering that ask, and i apologise to the people i hurt due to my carelessness. it was wrong of me to not elaborate, and i made a lot of trauma survivors feel invalid and angry.
i am very deeply sorry to those who were angered by or upset by my reaction to this ask. i should have been more careful with how i answered it, and this is a lesson i will keep in mind for the future when answering questions that are unclear.
