Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Sometimes suffering is simply suffering. It doesn’t make everyone stronger, at all.

There is this myth perpetuated that all trauma and suffering ‘makes you stronger’. Actually that is not true.

There are many who don’t become society’s demand of ‘so strong’ and they are they shamed and made to feel like victims/weak as a result, which is so wrong and harmful.

Some people struggle considerably with the suffering and trauma they have endured – for very valid reasons and I support those people in their struggles and show NO judgment for their journey.

Not everyone becomes a ‘recovery success story’ perpetuated by society as being the ‘only’ way we ‘should’ be.

I have greater levels of empathy and compassion than to demand everyone be ‘strong’.

I don’t like this shaming attitude society, and many within the mental health field have, where everyone ‘has’ to become so strong …. or they are worthless, weak and acting like victims. Shaming, shaming, shaming.

Not everyone becomes strong, not everyone will recover from severe mental illness and I wish more people understood this and stopped shaming many instead.

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.
