A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Glad to give my views about Jill Meagher and the disgusting victim blaming comments by a priest.

Glad to be able comment online about the disgusting victim blaming comments an Australian priest made about Jill Meagher’s rape and murder.

Glad to see my comment on a well known news website, has by far the most likes, and not simply because I want the ‘most’ likes – but so a healthy view by a Christian can be given, to show that not all Christians are abusive, victim blaming, abuser enablers – like too many religious people choose to be.

I realise all I can ever do is state my views, model what I believe and know is right, and hope it resonates with someone.

And in this case, it has, with many.

Which is all I can ever hope to do.

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

  1. I was the victim of child abuse by a very violent uncle who also stalked and victimised me as a woman. He was also a christian who would take me to church!! As an adult when I finally stood my ground and said he was not to come to my house where I was caring for my mother who was passing away from cancer the rest of my very Pentecostal family were shocked and really angry with me!! They told me I needed to be forgiving!! basically they all thought I was in the wrong!! No doubt manipulated by this man! One Aunty actually said to me ‘ some men can’t help themselves’ . I said to this ‘ well he’ll have to learn since I’ll be taking this to court!’ No one christian has ever stood with me on this!! I am rejected by my own family and totally discarded struggling with cancer myself now!! I can relate to your story!! People want to blame the victim I have had no support or compassion only rejection and blame!! I know Jesus had compassion and cared for the broken hearted and abused while on earth !! It’s not a trait I see in many Christians I’m afraid to say !!
