Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

My daily reminder bracelet. I am free.

1 Comment


I bought this bracelet, because it reminds me I am free of past abusers. I am no longer captive to them. They are not in my life. I am free of them.

I am not free of the consequences of all their abuse, but I am free of ‘them’.

I am not free of current abuse, I am in an unhealthy marriage, but I survived all the other abuse – I will survive this too.

This bracelet reminds me every day now, I can survive ….. I always do ….. and I always will. And I will do it on my own, because I always have.

I don’t ‘need’ anyone. I can take care of myself. I have done all my life.

I am, and will always be, that solitary bird …….. flying free.

I could write a poem about this.

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
