Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Life is good and days like today, remind me of that.

Today has been one of those amazing, but ordinary days, where you know life is so good, even amongst the grieving, the PTSD and exhaustion.

This morning we went to Church and I feel so blessed for us to have been welcomed into our Church so quickly, and know such warm, kind, friendly people and to feel safe there, in a way I never felt before.

I feel at peace when I am there, I feel safe. And that is huge for me and I thank God daily for leading us somewhere where we will learn His word, grow, feel like we belong, feel a part of the Church community and be able to serve God.

My boys have already been in the pool today, and listening and watching them have so much fun, their laughter and happy times, their happy childhood such a joy to see.

It soothes my soul to know the childhood they are having, is one every child should have, where they know they are loved, encouraged, are safe, and nurtured within the loving embrace of a real family home.

We don’t have much money, none for luxuries, holidays etc, but it makes us all the more thankful and appreciate of the little, but important things in life, we are blessed with, but often forget.

The dinner is in the slow cooker and it’s a family favourite slow cooked lamb shanks, that we don’t have often due to finances, but becomes all the more of a treat when we do. Roasties, veggies and Yorkshire puddings and lots of mint sauce, all being enjoyed with thanks and prayers to God for providing us with.

The sun is shining, there is a cool breeze flowing through our old highset home, soothing my soul and making it feel like the perfect day.

My son has just hopped back in the pool and no doubt will be followed by the others soon, and I will take a dip too.

Even just in these few things we are enjoying today, I can see massive blessings we have received and I am truly grateful for them.

There are so many things I could whinge about right now, real painful things going on in my life, but I refuse to think about them, and just savour these times, where I know how happy and blessed my family are and how much I love them and love to see them have fun and not take that for granted.

Life is always good, even when there is bad.

I just need to see it.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
