Victims Need Validation

1-me

It is very important for everyone, but especially children, to have their feelings and experiences validated by others. Lack of validation can result in the development of feelings of guilt and shame in reaction to negative experiences. Validation is the recognition and acceptance of another person’s internal experience as valid. When someone validates another’s experience, the message they send is: “Your feelings make sense. Not only do I hear you, but I understand why you feel as you do. You’re not bad or wrong or crazy for feeling the way you do.”
