A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I can’t ‘save’ everyone and I need to protect myself, more.

I am a naturally protective, empathic, compassionate person.

No matter how worried and sad I feel for so many people who are being conned by a sociopath on another PTSD page, who is conning and manipulating so many people…

I cannot save everyone, even though I want to.

It is being dealt with and I need to wait patiently for the situation to come to it’s conclusion, that will occur.

I hate to think of many people being harmed during the time that this will take, but it is not my responsibility to try to protect people.

My role now, is to continue helping those who reach out here.

And this is healthy self boundaries, that mean I know, I cannot risk my own self, to try and save others.

My own needs ‘are as important’ as the needs of others.

This is pretty good progress for me.

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. I think we all need to be reminded to do some self care…a burden is lifted when we realize that it is not our job to save people-we can share what we know through experience and education, but ultimately, only God can save……it is very hard to let go of the responsibility we are raised to take on! Kudos for your actions!
