Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Being thankful, for what I do have…..rather than focussing completely, on what I don’t.

Half Empty or Half Full

Sometimes, I literally have to force myself to think about what I do have in my life that is good, because I do have good.

Having severe depression, can make it almost impossible to look at the good, but, I know having a grateful heart, makes me feel better.

I seem to spend a lot of time, apologising to God, for not being grateful enough for what I do have. I know He understands. He knows I have never acted the victim and always tried to see life as joyful. He knows what I have been through and how none of this, is what I want.

And it okay, to be sad about so much abuse and pain the huge consequences of that, I deal with daily. It is okay to feel sad, to feel self sorrow, to admit being exhausted and depressed.

But, I do try hard when I visit ‘deepdepressionsville’, to not unpack and stay there too long.

This afternoon, I am focussing on my beautiful boys, my helpful husband, the beautiful weather, our lovely pool and praise God for all that.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

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
