Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

There is a lot of truth in this comment I had from a friend….about not needing to reveal all, to all.

Due to some very angry rants today/yesterday, the self hate stuff came to the surface. I guess it will do when you receive so many horrible comments and anger dumped on you. And I do know it’s their own hurt causing this and is actually nothing to do with me, and I’m not angry with them ~ which is why I haven’t responded back……but it still really hurt.

This was a response from a lovely friend ~ and I can see is very wise and insightful and I think she is spot on ❤

“I think it is more ‘ok’ to bawl your eyes out (((Hugs)))

Very wise to discuss with your counsellor if you feel as though you are self-sabotaging or ‘brutalising’ yourself with your ‘honesty’, I think it may be a symptom of childhood abuse too.

Sometimes we believe in order to heal that we have to bare all, confess all, in order to have a ‘clean slate’ to begin again. I don’t believe this is necessary to heal, it’s only necessary to be honest with ourselves & God about our possible character defects and poor behaviours.

We can open ourselves up to attack if we reveal some of ourselves to un-trustworthy people. It’s not being dishonest to NOT tell the whole population all our inner most feelings and supposed ‘sins’. You are not disgusting and never will be.

Would you think of or speak to a dear friend like that? I didn’t think so….please don’t speak to my dear friend Lilly like that or I’ll have to release ‘ Ninja XXXX’ on you!!”

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
