Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


UN step up, tackle Vatican – for enabling/protecting of paedophiles. Praise God!

It is so deeply wrong that outside agencies have to deal with abuse within Christians, because Christians cannot deal with it appropriately themselves.

I know this is not Catholic Church only. Even the Baptist Church where I live are protecting and enabling several abusers. It is a Christianity wide issue.

The Royal Commission is doing much needed work to flush out some of these abusers and enablers too.

Praise God SOMEONE is willing to act in a more just, compassionate and wise manner than many Christians are able to.

Sheldon Cooper’s character is narcissistic, socially awkward, childish, hurtful, naive, irascible, selfish, rude, and irrepressible.

He believes he is superior to everyone, even Stephen Hawkins, has no respect for anyone, constantly thinks of himself, is willing to hurt others and do highly inappropriate behaviours he feels completely entitled to do – like hack into people’s computers, for his own selfish needs.

This TV show is very funny – I see that. It does make me laugh. The writing is clever, the acting is excellent. I have a well developed sense of humour, and I do see the humour.

BUT, the deeper issues of this program, are the continuing ‘normalising’ of bad, selfish, entitled, hurtful behaviour.
