‘Self Compassion’…sounds easy hey. Well..it’s not.

A post to my page – to help others know, this is not as easy as it may seem…..

I talk about this a lot. Because I do know that this is a much needed part of healing and dealing with all we go through.

It sounds so easy – just click our fingers and viola! – There is some self compassion.

I really know it does not work like this. Oh, how I wish it did, for you all and for me

I’ve spent 40 years, with inner self hatred, blame and shame inflicted upon me by my highly abusive family and all the abusers.

That is a lot of time and deep core wounds. This is not suddenly turned into self compassion, over night.

It is part of the journey and it take time, and it is taking a fair time for me.

So, if you struggle with self compassion, please know I do really understand. Just little steps, along the way, as with everything.

((((((hugs))))))) to anyone who needs one today.

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 know what you mean…thats one I cant seem to do either…I was made to be tough, unemotional…to survive …being nice and loving to myself???? It doesnt work, I just hear the words dont be a baby,grow up, get tough, and its my fault if my feelings get hurt….and worse…..I cant find compassion for myself…..I never got it…
