A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Most people don’t actually listen….

I see this all the time.

Most people don’t listen from the other person’s life/experiences, they only listen from their own biased experiences and react and respond accordingly.

It’s the ego, selfishness in humanity, that causes this.

Empathy, is rare.

Most people only hear what they want to hear, and respond in a way that is for themselves.

It’s why people will say things they know are likely to be hurtful, but say them anyway and add things like ‘I hope you don’t feel offended by this, but….’. Knowing the person will likely be hurt, offended but they feel ‘entitled’ to say it anyway. Instead of just shutting up.

Listening, combined with empathy, is a skill, that needs to be developed and is not common.

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
