You own your experiences, nobody else.

Let’s get one thing bright and sparkling clear.

You own your goddamned experiences.

You.

Nobody else.

Yes, there is a very damn good chance that someone else experienced it differently.

You should probably – at least, once you’ve calmed down – make a good-faith effort to try to understand where they’re coming from, and why they see the whole thing differently than you. You might even decide that the way you experienced it was flawed, and change your behavior in the future.

But.

If that person isn’t making an effort to realize that you saw the whole thing differently than they did as well…

…then they’re fucking trying to rewrite your story.  And that’s a big fat nope.

Bonus protip: Such a person will probably proactively accuse you of trying to rewrite their experiences before the idea crosses your mind. Run the fuck away.
