Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I have no need to try to ‘compete’ and believe my trauma, is ‘as bad’ as others have experienced…

I don’t understand this big issue some people have with getting upset at their trauma, possibly not being considered ‘as traumatic’ ………. as the trauma others have experienced.

Some get very upset as the view that their own trauma…… is not ‘the worst’ it can be.

Which I find quite bizarre.

I have the empathy to completely see e.g. that a young child who has been sold into child prostitution, or child porn, or child slavery……has endured far greater trauma than I have.

I have no issue at all with accepting that would be far greater trauma and depth of abuse…. than I have experienced.

I have great empathy for a person who has endured worse than I have.

And I have no ‘need’ to try to compete and need to believe that my trauma, is ‘as bad’.

It’s called empathy for others…….. and living in reality.

But, it is interesting how many people cannot think this way.

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
