Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It’s horrible, to know people with psychopath traits, and not being able to say anything.


I know a lot about psychopaths, narcissists and sociopaths and all the traits people display with high levels of all the traits within these PD’s.

I have had it confirmed, validated and I know, I pick up easily on these traits because I have already endured so much abuse by people with these PD’s.

I know people, who have psychopath traits and this bothers me. Even before I researched all this psychology knowledge I now have, I had already been bothered by the ‘red flags’ I detected. But, there is not really anything I can do about it. If I tell the people connected to them, they will think I am crazy. But, not saying something, seems wrong too.

Watching the Baden-Clay murder trial and seeing so clearly how he had psychopath traits, it worries me that in saying nothing, I am doing the wrong thing.

What if e.g. the partner who I know has very high level psychopath traits, murders or hurts the person I care about?

I accept other people’s problems, are not my issue, not my responsibility, and that I don’t know if the person(s) with psychopath traits is abusive, not all are, but they are far more likely to be.

I feel like I am in a situation where whatever I do, could be wrong.

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. They are so common, and most of them don’t murder anyone. As for helping, you are already doing so, by posting information online. It’s here for people to inform themselves. They might not find it until it is “too late”, but without the online information I found after the discard, I don’t know HOW I would have coped. You are already doing a great effort. Hug.

    • Thank you ❤

      Yes, they are more common than many realise, just seeing the top 10 psychopath jobs – CEO's Lawyers etc, makes perfect sense to me and I see how many live amongst us.

      I see these traits in people and it scares me. But, I do need to remember that I was severely abused by a sadistic, violent psychopath, who did kill a girlfriend before me (made it look like an accident), but they are not all like that.

      Thank you for your support ❤

  2. It really is a struggle to try to explain to people that someone they know is a psychopath without sounding crazy. Yesterday I got into a conversation with a bartender about Narc/Sociopaths. It was such a relief to talk to another person who understands. It was the first time I was able to admit out loud that my ex, who everyone thinks is the nicest person in the world, is actually a narcissist.
