I can not fathom a person who trivialises someone else’s feelings simply because they do not, or refuse, to understand how that person can feel that way. I can’t fathom a person who can not put their self aside, and try to see things from someone else’s perspective, simply because they themselves can not fathom being wrong.
Acknowledging a persons feelings toward something, even if it were the smallest of circumstances that, in any other given situation, you would deem unworthy of your attention, is acknowledging a piece of that person that they are trying to share with you. Be it through a story, a song, an activity, a noise, words, not words, the most painfully unpleasant thing you can do to someone, is belittle their feelings because you feel differently, rather than sincerely trying to understand, in a kind, soft manner.
People are not always going to see eye to eye, and that is to be expected, but when taken to with condescension, anger, malicious words and actions, one can not be expected to continue putting themselves into a position to be put down.
After a while, they build the levy strong enough that it won’t break anymore, and all those feelings will be kept at bay.
