Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

People with passion & drive for something other than greed & power…a shock for society.

It’s a sad fact, that in this apathetic, egocentric, selfish society in which I reside – anyone who wants to make a difference, change things to help others in need, in a positive way – is deemed to be a problem, or is judged wrongly as wanting to do for self motivated reasons.

Why? Not because what that motivated person is doing, is wrong – but because it highlights the lack of empathy, lack of selfless actions, and apathy and selfishness, of everyone else. Because people like this cannot understand what it feels like – to want to help others in a truly unselfish way. They don’t ‘get that’ – because they don’t have that capacity within themselves.

I have different sources of information established to raise awareness of PTSD, Complex PTSD and yet no-one I know was willing to support that as something good. It’s unpaid – why would I do that? They think.

No-one I know is supportive of what I do to help others – and yet they are quick to talk about themselves. I intend to volunteer in the future to help street kids living in poverty and suffering, no-one cares about that either. I want to volunteer worth Bravehearts to help make a difference to protect children more, from sexual abuse – no-one cares about that. But if I talk about something I have bought, clothes, or something else shallow – people are interested. So sad.

People love to go to the movies and watch ‘super-hero’s’ in action, watch movies where some always does something spectacular to ‘save the day’, People love movies where ‘good fights bad’.

And yet in real life – if someone wants to do that – they are deemed an issue, a problem, are looked at with suspicion and called names like a zealot.

And if there is one thing our increasingly selfish, egocentric, narcissistic society hates more than anything – is the truth, and the mostly truth about self.

Society promotes ‘live for yourself’. And of course, that suits most people.

Having passion and drive for good causes – rather than money – is seen as an issue. Boring. Annoying.

Having passion to work hard to make lots of money – that’s okay. Our materialistic society applauds that.

But having passion to help others in need – that’s not okay.

According to society.

How sad is that.

But, I see fully it is these people who are willing to stand up and actually do something – that make a difference in life – make positive differences in this world.

Nothing good in this world was ever achieved from a place of apathy, or selfishness. And sadly, most of society don’t even realise, this is exactly where they are at.

Jesus wasn’t apathetic, selfish, materialistic, egocentric and neither were many of the amazing people that have made a difference in this world – Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Teresa, to name a few. No-one could ever describe them as apathetic.

I find it very sad that the general population within society will always look to put down people who try hard, have passion and want to make a difference, for something that makes a difference to those who are being harmed, oppressed, suffering.

Sad – because all they are doing is protecting their own unhealthy ego’s, instead of doing the right thing, and supporting that person, or better still – join them.

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
