Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It is a good sign that I am not upset on UK Fathers Day.

This is not me, but this is how I feel today. Calm, not stressed out. Okay.

I know it’s Father’s Day in UK, only because social media is pumped full of all the quotes that say how wonderful fathers are.

Normally, I struggle on either Mother’s or Father’s Day. Having not had a good one of either, feels unbelievable cruel at times. I know the added impact not having one person, not one parent that you can trust, rely on. To have two abusive ones, who knew I was being abused and all the others deep abuse…feels unbearable sometimes.

But, today despite is being Fathers Day in UK, I feel okay. Not sad, not emotional and not numb. Just okay.

This is progress for me and I know that, because I have had decades of emotions on every single Mothers/Fathers day.

So, I will feel okay with peaceful okay’ness I feel today and praise Jesus for this healing.

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
