Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I’m pretty over certain groups calling themselves ‘hero’s’ – suggesting others are not.

Combat Vets and First Responders often like to call themselves hero’s, for surviving war/front line trauma, and having PTSD as a result.

This suggests people who have not survived those types of trauma, are not hero’s.

Severe child abuse, prolonged abuse, domestic violence survivors – have all survived horrendous trauma, which is like a war, only at home. It is front line trauma too.

So, in my opinion, they are all equally hero’s as well.

They didn’t choose their situation, or their trauma, they didn’t deserve it.

Yet they don’t get the label of ‘hero’.

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. So true!

    They chose to be there.
    We didn’t.
