Breaking the pattern of apologising, for what I don’t need to apologise for..

Do you feel compelled to apologise for things, you actually don’t need to apologise for?

I have done this all my life. All due to past abuse.

I have been spending less time on social media recently, which is good for me, and part of my self care.

I nearly apologised on Twitter just now, for my lack of tweets recently…

And I stopped myself and thought…

“Why am I apologising for something that is about my self care?

I am under no obligation to tweet a certain amount per day.

It is not my duty, or responsibility to have to be tweeting all day.

I’m not hurting anyone, or doing anything wrong.

And I don’t need to feel guilty about this either.”

Go me – on facing the issues of self care, guilt, over-responsibility to others.

go me

I don’t need to apologise, when I haven’t done anything wrong.

It takes time to work on these issues. It’s not easy, but we do deserve to work on it.

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
