Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I think it’s sad that people like my doctor ‘won’t’ see Tony Abbott is a narcissist.


It is true, that people will see people the way they wish to perceive them, for their own needs.

My doctor knows a lot about mental health, and yet supports Tony Abbott as PM and the Liberal party. And is a church goer, who is meant to care about the sick, ill, elderly, vulnerable, oppressed, poor – like Jesus.

My doctor is also middle class.

Tony Abbott clearly has narcissism, even down to needing to show off in his budgie smugglers on TV.

I can spot narcissism and narc traits so easily now, due to personal experience of enduring them and psychology knowledge of what their traits are.

And so should my doctor be able to.

Narcissism, is not ever a good virtue to have to the level people like Tony Abbott have it. It is selfish, lacks empathy, actions all for self, arrogance, pathological lying, lacking remorse, lacking insight and never about the good of others.

This should not exist in politics, but sadly it does, throughout politics.

But Tony Abbott is such a classic very obvious example.

But my doctor wants to think about the good in Tony Abbott, to excuse the bad. And to me, that is sin. And apathy.

How my doctor and people like her, cannot/won’t (maybe does but does not care) see all the lies he very deliberately told prior to the election, and now has gone against, and all his narcissism, is beyond me.

Hellooooo Australia – Tony Abbott is a pathological liar – do you not see that?

Tony Abbott didn’t lie the way he has for Australia’s good – he did it so he could be PM.

He even told his mother, he would either be PM or the Pope – delusions of grandeur from a young age.

And he succeeded, any way he could, with lies and trampling all over whoever he needed to – to get what he wanted – the ultimate ego boost for Tony – PM.

I think people like my doctor, choose to not see this, because it suits middle class needs and views, and quite frankly why would you care that poor people can’t afford to pay $7 to see the doctor, when your income is a high as hers and her lawyer husbands has been and you can afford anything you want.

When you are in a place of ease and comfort financially, why would you care about the poor. Why would you care that disabled people have to choose between eating, or medical help?

I’ve been in a situation where I had a loaf of bread to eat all week, because I didn’t have enough money.

I’ve been in prolonged situations of being hungry with not enough food, to know what hunger feels like.

I look at my situation and think if I didn’t have my husband, and I was on disability pension support and family assistance, I wouldn’t be able to afford the uniforms needed to send my child to the local catchment ‘state’ high school he is at, or afford to go to the doctor myself, because I wouldn’t have any spare money at all, for that.

So I think about people who are genuinely needing benefits and how they are being affected by this budget. And many genuine people are going to suffer greatly, while the rich – who only have what they have because they have been ‘blessed by God’ – don’t give a shit. And don’t share enough.

Yes, there are dole bludgers and I agree that is not okay – and I agree with work for dole.

But this budget hurts genuine people. The elderly. The sick. The disabled. Those wanting to attend Uni. Children in state schools.

But, the middle classes and the ones who voted for Tony to ‘stop the boats’ have no empathy and no compassion for people in need.

And will make any excuses they can for their views.

But, make no mistake – Tony Abbott is a narcissist who is not doing what he is, for Australia, he is doing it for himself and his massive ego and does not care who he hurts in the process.

And all his minions, his apath minions, are going along with it.

And I do have a level of respect for my doctor, although less than I used to.

What’s in people’s hearts is more important to me, than their qualifications and I truly do not care about their bank balance, status, address, ‘class’ etc.

People disappoint me frequently, with the content of their hearts. And their lack of spiritual integrity/wisdom.

I’m starting to see there are reasons for people not wanting to see narcissism etc in others – because it hits too close to home. Its easier to ignore the narcissism in others, or justify it as okay, if you don’t want to self reflect about that within yourself.

And I see clearly, that everyone is flawed, has issues, they often cannot see in themselves. Or can, but don’t care.

I’m adding to this – another clear example of Tony’s narcissism – called narcissistic injury. He wants to hurt people – but can’t handle the rightful anger people have in return. So sulks.

Narcs think they can do anything they want – but DO NOT say anything back – that’s not allowed in the life according to a narcissist.

The narc ego is a painful thing, eh Tony.

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’m fairly certain politics at the upper levels draws/attracts narcissistic types. Surely any position offering that much opportunity for power and ‘fame’ draws narcissists like a moth to a flame!

    • It sure does.
      The bigger issue, is people condoning it, who shouldn’t.
      That bothers me more.
      Apathy is never a good thing.

      • Yes, apathy as well as condoning bad behaviour needs to change. Not sure how one motivates the population at large to do that though. Voter turnout in Canada here is low but I doubt more people voting would help. The choice of politicians isn’t exactly outstanding.
