From my doctor after I broke down in his office crying and explained my situation to him.
"I really think you should bury this because this is the kind of thing that can hold you back if you let it."
He wasn't trying to be a jerk at all but genuinely seemed to think that was the best course of action. Although I had not begun therapy yet I had read a few books already and knew intellectually that was the worst thing to tell a survivor. Didn't matter though because emotionally it still upset me to hear someone say it. Also made me wonder what he had buried.
