Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


My inner child area I keep all her things and my beloved rag dolls :)

My rag dolls Milly & Molly, who I adore, and cuddle when I am sad and feel scared, and go to bed with me, when needed.


My fairies and girly things I have bought, collected and made.

I have my ‘ego’ tested every day….and this is my response…


I love to remind people on my pages……..I am indeed *not* awesome, amazing, incredible, wonderful….or any of those ego enhancing, unrealistic, non honest sayings people love to consider themselves.

I read these comments about myself all the time and it is lovely of people to say nice things to me, but I am aware of keepin’ it real!

I am a flawed human being – as we *all* are……..with strengths, weaknesses, good and bad, areas I need to develop, areas already very well developed.

I try to do good and sometimes I succeed.

And I have and want humility.

I am a wisdom seeker, wanting to grow to be all I can be, and I *know* this is a life long journey.

Others have more wisdom than I and I passionately seek this. Others have some different wisdom and many teach me through my journey, not even realising they are my teachers.

I am a lifelong student.

I am not better than anyone, but know I am different to many.

What I am *not* – is awesome, incredible, amazing, wonderful etc

And nor do I want to be.

Nor will I ever be.

I scolded her often

Repeating the harm
