Validating Personal Experiences: When Others Attempt Dismissing What We’ve Seen and Heard


IMG 6122

In our lives, we often encounter situations where our personal experiences are called into question. It can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening when others try to convince us that we didn’t see what we saw or hear what we heard. This paper aims to explore the importance of validating personal experiences and the impact it has on our sense of self and relationships with others.

Facts must have an audience!

You’ve heard the statement, “it’s not what you know but what you can prove.” While it is true that evidence and proof are essential in many aspects of life, it can sometimes be used in a deceitful and manipulative manner to dismiss facts.

 In an ideal world, facts and knowledge should be valued and respected, regardless of whether they can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. However, in certain situations, people may exploit the requirement for proof to manipulate the truth or ignore valid information that doesn’t align with their agenda.

 It is crucial to critically analyze and question the sources of information and evidence presented to us. By doing so, we can strive for a more balanced and informed understanding of the world around us. Remember, seeking reliable sources, engaging in thoughtful discussions, and considering multiple perspectives can help us navigate through this complex issue.

The phrase “seeing and hearing is believing” is a common adage used to suggest that we should trust our eyes and personal experiences more than what is said by others. But what do we do when the words of others or the evidence of our own senses is dismissed by people who do not believe us? This has been an especially salient issue in today’s society where we are inundated with a multitude of varying opinions and perspectives and it can be difficult to know the truth.

The struggle to be heard and believed is something that everyone has come across, regardless of age or background. In many cases, it is the young people who are most likely to experience this scepticism as their voices are often seen as less valuable or not credible in comparison to adults. This can be incredibly damaging for those who need their stories told, not just for themselves but for others in similar situations. Without the assurance that what we have seen and heard is taken seriously, individuals may be prevented from coming forward to share their experiences or others may be prevented from having access to materials and knowledge that could empower them to make better informed decisions.

When it comes to seeing, hearing evidence and drawing conclusions, many people are ready to censor or undermine sources that conflict with their own beliefs and agendas. They may try to pick apart information or discredit witnesses in order to cast doubt on topics or stories. This could be motivated by facts which do not suit their own worldview, policy or position, or something more sinister such as attempting to silence an individual’s voice or deny them access to information about a certain topic. 

Unfortunately, the culture of disbelief is pervasive and in many cases, the loudest voices tend to be favoured regardless of their accuracy. It can be incredibly difficult to prove one’s case and have it accepted as truth, particularly when it goes against a widely held belief or heavily contested idea. The best way to counter this is to ensure that sources are credible, reliable and demonstrate the facts needed to support an argument. Information should be collected from multiple trusted sources, presented in a clear and understandable manner and any discrepancies should be addressed.

Ultimately, it is important that we take what we see and hear seriously, especially in cases when the words of individuals are being disregarded or ignored. We must be open to different perspectives and viewpoints, and strive to ensure that truth prevails without bias or prejudice.
