Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

The sexualisation of girls/children, so blatant, even at the shopping centre.


At the shopping centre today, getting haircuts for my boys. Right in the middle, a dance centre group of girls, dancing for the public.

Fishnet tights, short skirts, faces full of make up, hair like adults. Made me feel so sad to see. These girls were as young as 9, 10 years old. And their parents were encouraging, allowing and enabling them to look like adults and wear provocative clothing.

I truly wish parents would not sexualise their daughters in this way. It is so unhealthy and not good parenting. Children need to be allowed to be children. And they do not need to be displayed in a provocative way to the public.

I see clearly how society is sexualising girls and wants to demand this is okay. Well, it’s not okay on so many levels and sends such a bad message to their daughters.

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. This is so sad and so common nowadays.

  2. Yeah my first essay this time last year was on this subject. And how we genderise them to. It’s very sad.
