I think what is difficult about this is that right/wrong is a very fixed binary, and the only ways to explore further is through consistent conversation. This is also something that, in my experience, requires a great deal of vulnerability. Are the people open to talking about it further? If not, it sounds like maybe these people are criticizing you in unfair ways. I hesitate to say abusive, since I’m working with no context, but if whoever these domineering critics are don’t want to talk further, then that seems a bit fucked up.

I know for me, one of the hardest things to learn was knowing my truth. As somebody who has always dealt with bad brain shit and “extraordinary experiences” (ie psychosis, hearing shit, etc), I became very susceptible to abuse and people generally trying to take an authority position and manage my life. It was difficult, but after a great deal of work, I began to learn to identify my truth and autonomy in fucked up situations.

I don’t know, maybe I’m missing the point though. These things are very dependent on their context. I hope you’re ok, and that you’re figuring things out. If it gets bad and confusing in a scary way, feel free to reach out if you want to talk about it any further.

You got this <3
