Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Why do so many people believe the abusers lies???

Abusive people will often lie about their victims & others believe them……why?

Abusive people will often stop at nothing to make sure they are seen to be the ‘nice’ person and not have to admit what they have done. They will protect their own real selves from being exposed, any way they can.

Once they want to discard their victim….or the victim realises what is going on…… the victim will be made to look like the ‘crazy’, ‘lying’, ‘abusive’ one. Often this is referred to as the ‘smear campaign’.

People will be duped by this and not want to see the manipulation, often because they are invested in this abuser themselves.

Or they have something to lose by accepting that this person has in fact, abused someone else.

And some actually won’t care that this person has abused someone else. Some people have no conscience, no empathy and have a ‘well they haven’t done anything bad to me’ attitude.

Some will choose not to believe anything they haven’t personally witnessed, no matter what they are told, or even how much evidence they have been shown.

Some want to have negative feelings towards the victim, so will join in the lies.

Others will just not want to face the fact that they too… are actually being lied to.

Some think it will make them ‘look like a bad person’ if they believe this person is an abuser (church people are especially concerned with this one).

Abusive people very often lie and manipulate everyone in their life.

And so many people only learn to accept the truth……..when they themselves become the focus and target of the abuser.

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
