How do you deal with your feelings being invalidated?

Anonymous
I notice one of my friends does this with me, and it makes me feel disappointed and hesitant to talk to her. It feels like she doesn't care about how I feel, which is weird since she always tells me her problems and I feel like I've been supportive towards her. She is one of my only friends who I've opened up to, but now I'm not sure if I feel like sharing anything with her anymore if she's just going to brush it off or tell me my problems aren't real. I'm not really sure what to do.
