Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Empathic anger, empathy distress….all part of real empathy.

I have the capacity for deep empathy and I do for people’s suffering. I don’t believe that having empathy is about being all nicey nicey, lovely lovely…

I believe real empathy, involved empathic anger at the way people are treated, the way society often treats people already so badly hurt and in pain.

I love humanity…I desperately don’t want any suffering.

But, I don’t like society, most of it.

The selfishness, the increasing narcissism I see so clearly, the increasing abuse not many seem bothered about.

I don’t like all the apathy, all the egocentricity. I don’t like all the push for outer success, outer happiness. I don’t like all the shaming that goes on, in society and within religion. I don’t like people enjoying seeing others getting hurt.

And I don’t have to like it at all. Or ignore it and be apathetic like most. And this does not mean I hate people, or wish them any bad at all.

In fact quite the opposite, I truly want people to change, grow, develop empathy and compassion.

But, I do have empathic distress at all the suffering in this world. I do have empathic anger. I do have empathy for future victims so few seem to be concerned about.

I still grieve this fallen world.

I grieve my own sins.

I grieve all the suffering, abuse, pain, loss, people who don’t have a quality of life, I wish everyone could have.

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
