Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Anger is needed in healing & grieving, so bought a punch bag today.


I have never been an angry person, was never allowed to be, and I have always suppressed any angry emotions into depression, and I still do that.

Healing from severe abuse/trauma, will involve anger. Grieving involves anger. And grieving is needed.

Plus when you care deeply about humanity and suffering, this will involve anger – seeing all the abuse, suffering, harm, apathy, selfishness of society all increasing.

Many people think being angry is not okay. Which is rubbish. It is ‘how’ you express and get that anger out that matters.

So, I have bought a punch bag today 🙂

I’ve often recommended this to others and now I am taking my own advice. Now whenever I feel those anger emotions bubbling up, I can go and punch and kick my punch bag.

Going to try it out as soon as hubby has fixed it to the underneath of our deck.

Will be good exercise too, if I do it regularly.

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
