Other People Have It Worse, But That Doesn't Invalidate Your Feelings
Other people may have it worse than you. That doesn’t make your feelings or your suffering any less important in comparison. •You're entitled to feel the way you do. It’s okay to have your own struggles, your own personal battles, and your own feelings, regardless of what others are experiencing. •Other people are not more justified in feeling sad, angry, or frustrated.

You can choose to limit contact with people who invalidate your feelings.
You may find it helpful to work through your current feelings as well as those you've carried around with you for perhaps most of your life. I recommend this book as a great starting point:
