Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Healing….. is not about being ‘addicted’ to trauma, abuse and suffering.

I’ve spend 3 years, thinking about, researching, processing, and grieving abusive people and the harm they caused me.

And I did need that period of time because I have endured so much trauma and abuse…..and I also sadly endured further trauma and abuse (spiritual / narcissist minister / unhealthy church abuse)…….whilst trying to deal with trauma and abuse from the past.

And even though this last 3 years has been so intensely painful and nearly killed me several times….. I had to go through it… to heal.

But, there comes a time, when we need to make a choice, to reduce this.

Otherwise, we do just become addicted to the abusers, and the abuse.

And addiction to trauma and abuse……is very common.

It is a choice that needs to be made ~ to *not* allow ourselves to be addicted to the trauma, abuse and suffering.

And make the choice…..to have more positive, joyful and lovely things within our lives and within our thoughts.

Something I discussed in counselling and was validated, as correct.

We do have power over our thoughts.

And no-one deserves to be addicted to trauma, abuse and suffering.

Carl G Jung quote ^^^

We do deserve to have increasing joy, happiness and goodness in our lives.

But, we have to *want* that.

There is a period of time for processing, learning about trauma, dealing with the reality of the horrific abuse we have endured.

But, that period of time…..is not needed to be indefinite.

I want hope and healing for people……and this is my passion.

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
