In my opinion, unless that person is a licensed therapist, social worker, psychologist, or psychiatrist, you don't have to prove to anyone anything. You can tell them, but let them believe it if they want/don't want. If they don't believe you, then move away from them and have a good, productive, and positive chat with your licensed professional. I think it is to the upmost important to try and help yourself MORE SO than helping others understand you. In this case, it can be okay to be selfish. Don't focus too much on what other people think/feel about you.
