Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Receiving Vindication…feels a relief and good…..and that is okay.



It is okay to feel very relived and very happy, when you are vindicated of wrong doing, of people’s lies, slander and your name being trashed.

It is horrible to go through these painful times, where you are being attacked, cyber bullied, abused, lied about – where people are harming you, and other people are believing it too.

And they are all wrong.

Being vindicated is good, it is good prevailing, and it *is* okay to feel good about it.

It is truth, light and goodness prevailing,

after much darkness had previously attempted victory.

And again, I do not have to justify this to anyone. They do not know what I endured, how it affected me, affected my healing, the anxiety and stress it caused me.

They don’t know my heart motivation, and my reasons for doing what it is they chose to harm me about.  

And if they do not know me, then their opinion, does not count, matter or need to be considered.

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

  1. Yeah – Even though I also don’t “know you” really I am glad you are in touch with such a powerful positive emotion!
