Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


My developing gardens……where I like to spend time every day :)

I spend a lot of time in my garden/yard.

It is my little sanctuary, where I escape to have some peace, where I create, where I soothe my inner child, where I think and where I pray ๐Ÿ™‚


This hydrangea was being sold cheap, because it was virtually dead. But, I’ve taken off the dead yucky leaves, and nurtured it and it has a mass of new, healthy leaves growing ๐Ÿ™‚

I know I’m on the right track…..when what I write, helps people to think.

I wrote this post and shared it onto my healing page……because it is an area of my own healing I have needed to face and work through…

And not just immediately dismissing it.

That’s the ‘hurt defensive ego’ reaction.

EQ, is about hearing the criticism, discerning the heart/soul giving the criticism, thinking whether there is any merit and validity and if there is, accepting that with maturity and honesty and then choosing to grow from it.

I know I have achieved what I set out to do…..when I receive comments like thisย in response.

“Your posts always make me think ๐Ÿ™‚ย thank you”

I don’t expect or insist anyone agree with me….

But, if I help people to think…. that is only ever a good thing.
