A psychiatrist once told me that after a certain age, sometimes it's best to heal over rather than open up the wound. At first, I was appalled, but after crying every week and feeling raw, I understood what he meant. (I'm not saying this is general advice I'd give people or that it is even correct.)

About trauma, I agree it's used so often it's lost meaning. The way depression or bipolar has. An example is someone who drinks a lot of coffee, gets buzzed, and says, I'm so manic. To add some nuance, medicine has demonstrated clear links between biology and trauma. It enters the social conversation. Does this make sense?

Yes, the same with narcissism and gaslighting. It's pretty pat to say so-and-so is such a narcissist. But with the appearance of a high-profile person who some believe to be a malignant narcissist, everyone is thinking about it and weighing in their mind the new info. It's annoying when the term becomes pop psychology, even if it is a culture grappling with new information and novel phenomena.

The Miriam Webster website even featured narcissist as word of the day and word of the week during 2017 because it was being looked up so often.
