Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I have realised – no-one else’s opinion of me and my life, actually matters.



I have come to realise, unless someone has walked through all the abuse and trauma I have endured, has the insight into abuse and abusers I have as a result of that life experience ……….. their opinion is worthless.

It has always interested me how people who have not endured the amount of abuse, the severity of abuse I have, consider themselves worthy of an opinion – when they do not even know how it feels to endure it all, and do not have the insight all that brings.

People simply choose opinions/views based on their own level of life experiences lived, their own limitations and their own needs to live life in a way that gets them through life how they wish to. And there will be a huge range of assumptions, cognitive distortions, disordered or unwise thinking involved.

And none of that …….. has anything to do with me.

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
