Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Checking out a local community project, with a view to maybe volunteering.

Within walking distance of my home, is a hall that is hired out for martial arts, Zumba etc.

I’ve just noticed it also has a community project providing food for those in need. They have boxes of food and other items, with volunteers all helping to organise, sort and arrange/fill the boxes. I am really thankful to these community projects, as they provide compassion for those in need.

I can see from their photos they are connected to a church and it appears to be Churches of Christ. I have no idea whether they are a decent church denomination and what they stand for, but I am thankful when churches provide community services. Actually ‘doing’ what Christians are meant to be doing. Caring and providing compassion for others, particularly those in need. And I noticed from their website, they provide a considerable amount of community initiatives and projects.

It makes me very nervous when anything is connected to church people.

But, I do accept some of them have their hearts in the right places and do things for the right reasons. And many of these community projects are organised and provided by church people. And no matter what their ‘religious’ views are, it is still a good community project helping people, which is all I am interested in.

So, I am going to go along today and check it out, get a feel for it. Maybe chat to a few people and see whether they are looking for volunteers.

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
