Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Validation from professionals about my Website :)


Validation shouldn’t matter, I know that….

But, I am also honest in knowing I appreciate validation.

Especially when it comes from professionals, who support my website, this blog and my community page.

I think everyone has a human need for validation.

And I know part of my validation seeking, is my childhood needs I never received, so I am compassionate with myself about that.

So, for today, I will thank the professional who said “Fantastic website 🙂 TY for sharing the link xx. I have passed it on to a friend who is not on twitter xx keep up the great work”

And then after I thanked her she sent this message “You’re more than welcome. I admire you and will do anything to help. Clients will find it helpful so thank you so much. x”

I can feel a little self esteem, that I have written something worthwhile, as professionals value it and I have had many messages that say that, from professionals.

I don’t think it is the best website, I need to update it actually, but I know it is good enough to help people.

And for that, I will be happy 🙂


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

  1. Validations DOES matter, it has become a “bad” word but then again look at society. If parents validated their children like they should and people treated each other better people would not seek it in maladaptive ways. I am glad you got it.

    • Thank you, yes validation has become a bad word.

      I used to say the only validation I need is from myself, but we do need it from others too.

      Not to develop some unhealthy ego issues, but just to know we are doing okay, we have value, we have worth.

  2. To be able to Read/Listen/Relate/Respond/Talk to a REAL PERSON is a very important, invaluable connection. Deeply thank you, Lily, for your valued inner thoughts/opinions/views/emotions that you convey with so much HEART.
