From Twitter that needs sharing here too ❤

Me:
Anyone who claims healing from abuse is about being positive every day – is deluded.
Grieving is a huge part of healing.
It takes a long time.

Reply:
Amen!! Some people spew positivity in such a way that it screams "shut up and get over it!"

Me:
Absolutely right! The 'shut up and get over it' brigade, need to shut up themselves.

The responses, were very positive, very thankful and it was very validating to many.

You need to grieve, you need to feel the emotions, you need to have self sorrow, and process it all – otherwise it stays within you.

Down the track, you can become more positive.

But not before you are ready.

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
