“Invalidation and minimization of the significance of the abuse caused, is highly damaging to a survivor.
It’s like the knife already plunged into us, is then being twisted”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario.

“I don’t believe you ever ‘get over’ severe child abuse.
I believe we need to process it, not suppress it.
I believe we need to grieve it, not avoid it.
I believe we need to learn self compassion, not a positive attitude.
I believe we learn to manage the pain better, at our own pace, however long that takes.
I believe we need to give ourselves permission to do all this.
And this is healing.”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“I learned I didn’t need permission, or acceptance about my need to heal, from those around me, or from society.
I needed to accept and give myself permission to heal”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“To understand why abuse occurs, it is needed to understand psychology of the abusive people who inflict abuse.”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“No-one has the right, to put a time limit on anyone’s ‘healing from severe abuse’ journey.”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“Healing from prolonged child abuse, can be a lifetime process.
Who is anyone to judge that?”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“A child abuse survivor, never ‘gets over it’.
We can in time, after processing, grieving, learn to manage the pain better.”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“Abuse survivors need compassion empathy non judgment support patience.
Please don’t use the words ‘move on’, ‘get over it’.”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

“If you have support & feel able to, it is always necessary to expose abusers.
Silence and apathy – is what they rely on to continue abusing.”
~ Lilly Hope Lucario

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
