Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I am not sugar coating what I endured……..for the needs of others.


I see how it is easier to view someone like a sadistic, violent, sexual psychopath…….as a person, as humane and not have negative emotions attached to people like this…….if you haven’t endured one.

That lack of understanding what they are capable of and to feel the pain they inflict……enables people to view them differently.

I have to remember that.

Limited understanding………limited life experiences……..do make it much easier to view people in a pleasant and positive way.

But, I am not sugar coating what they are………for the needs of others.

sugar coated

I am too real and too honest for that.

Yes, they are very damaged people, have issues with brain wiring etc…….I understand that.

But, the suffering they inflict……is horrific and I am not going to minimize that for the needs of others.

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

    • I think it’s human nature for many to want to sugar coat it and minimize the affects and evilness of the acts these people can inflict. It’s not even intentional sometimes.

      People mostly always do what they need to do, for their own needs first.

      It makes life easier when you see these people as human beings who just do wrong sometimes.

      That isn’t the reality, and whilst I can have empathy and compassion for the causes of why they are who they are…..I am not going to minimize my own life experiences……for the needs of others.

      In not validating the reality of what humanity is capable of and the suffering some can cause……I would also invalidate the reality and suffering others have endured. And I don’t intend doing that either.

      I don’t do the ‘rose coloured glasses’. Although I do see how that helps others to live a peaceful life.
