Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Ignoring the haters, frauds, narcs, fakes, liars, bullies….as my wellbeing matters too.


Life will always have these crappy people. Sadly, they exist and they hurt many others.

I am very protective of people getting harmed, and want to always warn everyone, expose the crappy people, and I get mixed responses to this. Some good, some neutral, some bad. I get hassle, more abuse/bullying/name calling/cyber attacking.

Sometimes, I can handle this hassle back….sometimes it hurts – because I am truly trying to help people, because I hate the thought of anyone getting harmed and I feel responsible for warning people. And I feel guilty, if I don’t. Guilt and shame are still issues in my life, I know that.

So, I will always be someone, who acts.

But, I need to have boundaries on this, to protect my own emotional wellbeing. I have to accept this is important too.

So, I am going to ignore the crappy people now. I’ve done my part in warning people, and I cannot save everyone from getting hurt. As much as I want to, I just can’t.

I need a break from all that for a while.

And that is okay.

Yes…it ‘is’ okay.

Yes, it is ‘okay’.

Yes, it is needed.

Yes, my wellbeing matters too.

This does not make me an ‘apath’, or ‘selfish’, or egocentric’.

It is okay and needed.

For my family and for me.

Okay…if I repeat this enough times to myself…

I might start to believe it…


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
