Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It is not wisdom to tell people to be proud of who they are and not change.


It is really unwise advice to tell the whole of society to ‘be who they are’.

Most people have issues, and don’t grow or mature into all they can be.

Society is becoming increasingly immature, because society promotes ‘being proud of who you are’ – even if unhealthy, nasty, bitchy, bully, egocentric, egotistic, narcissistic, immature, greedy, selfish….

Abuse of every kind is increasing throughout society, mental health problems are increasing, crime is increasing etc…..

Is it wisdom to say to society….’be proud of who you are’ ?

Clearly not.

It is certainly very *popular* for people to hear this rubbish – because that feeds into ego and lack of maturity to grow, or be honest about self…people love that crap.

But mostly what is popular, is not wisdom.

It is wisdom…..to encourage people to grow….not just remain who they are.

Of course, this will not be *popular* to hear…

But, I am not writing to be popular, I write to be real, and want the best for people.

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 and you are real. It’s sad. Have you seen the toy aisles. Society says be proud of who you are but they construct us. Look at toys. Pink. Makeup. Kitchen sets. Sexy monster high dolls. Blue. Spiderman. Guns and real rough boys toys. And that’s just the beginning. Christ I could go on.

  2. I may do one day.

    I do want to write books and I am in the process of putting one together based upon this Blog….a kind of journal style book.

    But I know atm I have to concentrate on me and my healing and building resilience.
