Insult or not…why should Joan Wheeler and other angry adoptees feel that adoption is a trauma?
We have all heard it…sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me! And yes, we all know that it is easier said than done…to ignore insults and other words. And yes, people will say things to adoptees, and other people, as an insult, that are derogatory, nasty and plain mean. People do terrible things to each other, but, that doesn’t mean that you must hang on to that ‘trauma’. To live in this world, a person has to develop a real thick skin or they will always find something as an insult and/or a trauma.
also, when someone uses it as an insult around me im really hurt by it but try not to show it. i got really mad at my boyfriend the other day because he did it. am i being too sensitive?
