Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

My motivation for wanting to go to Nepal…


A Nepalese street child sleeps on Thamel street

I have done my research and I have thought a lot about the life of a street child in Nepal, or in abusive orphanages, as some are.

I don’t have some romantic denial of how it will be when I get there. I’m not going to ‘get anything back’. I will be going because I believe that every child needs to know that there are some people who will treat them with respect, and because they deserve to be treated well – regardless of what they do in return.

I know these children will be deeply untrusting, highly suspicious, will probably lie, steal if they could, will not trust me and I don’t believe it will be all hugs and like some D grade TV movie.

I’m expecting to be treated the way they treat anyone else – but will still offer them respect and care anyway.

No child should have to endure a life of only adults who use, abuse and treat them like they have no worth.

I want to show them a little of how they should be treated. Because the more that do this, the better. Some will say it is a waste of time. But, no child and no effort is ‘ever’ a waste of time.

I will be doing this for them. Not for me.

There will be nothing in return I am expecting, except for feeling deeply sad for these children. It will hurt my heart and soul to see these children and how they live and see what life and people have turned them into.

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

  1. You are so right! No child and no effort is ever a waste of time!!! You’re not doing it for a return, you just have such an amazing heart! You must be an amazing mom!! You would be the perfect person to go and do that because you can relate in a way to what they are going through. I think they would trust you a lot faster than you think. God has blessed you with such strength and love! God bless you sister!

    • Thank you! I so appreciate you seeing that it is never a waste of time, to help any child. All children are so precious.

      I’m not an amazing Mum, but I try to encourage my children’s emotional needs and build their emotional intelligence and a desire to want to help people.
      My children don’t get physically abused with spanking and the like, and they know God loves them and is pure love. They also know I love them, unconditionally.

      • I would say that makes you an amazing mom! You see parents who have been through a quarter of what you have and they turn it on their children when they have them. So yes, amazing mom! 🙂 God bless you sister!!
