A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I will live in the truth of my life.

3 Comments

I intend remaining in the truth of my life. I have no choice, I am unable to live any other way. Once your eyes are opened and the truth is revealed, there is no going back.

I know what was done to me in the past. I know the intentionality of the abuse, by the abusers. I know they knew it was wrong and did it anyway.

I will not allow anyone to erode that truth.

I will not allow anyone to force their opinions about how I ‘should’ feel about these abusers, or any abusers.

I will not allow anyone try to make me feel I am not good enough, for thinking and feeling the way I do.

I will not allow anyone to shame me with their opinions.

I will not allow anyone minimize what I have endured.

I will not allow anyone to minimize all the emotions I have, rightfully so, after all I have endured.

I will not allow anyone to invalidate my suffering, pain and grieving.

At the same time, I will not allow this truth and these emotions to stop me living my life and finding joy and increasing peace, I am striving for.

I will and do validate all the good, all the joyful, all the wonderful in my life and know this exists and I value, embrace and live for this.

I will live in my truth that life is and can be horrendous and wonderful, all at the same time.

I will validate all the ‘horrendous’.

I will validate all the ‘wonderful’.

This is ‘my’ life and I will live in the truth of it all.

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
