Well meaning family & friends will commonly tell people with PTSD & CPTSD that we 'just need to move on' or 'we need to put it behind us'. It is natural for anyone to not want to see a loved one suffering so telling us to 'let it go' is said not only in love but in ignorance. 'Ignorant' means lacking knowledge or awareness. Our loved ones are ignorant to our traumas as they haven't experienced them. So they say what is logical - something hurt you, thinking of it hurst you so move on.
CPTSD…most people can not understand what it is like to be on the receiving end of (emotional, physical or psychological) abuse, until they have actually experienced it themselves. http://www.outofthefog.net/CommonNonBehaviors/CPTSD.html
