Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I subconsciously pick up on all cues. Including what people don’t say, and conflicting cues.

This quote is very me. I realise I learned this young. I am aware I have these skills to a greater depth than the average person, and I learned it to survive the first 20 years of my life. I accept this skill level and I accept other people don’t understand it.

Most people don’t understand what they haven’t experienced, or skills they do not personally have. I therefore understand, people will doubt my capacity for discernment. I’ve been told to trust it. But, most people don’t pick up on behaviours, cues in people beyond a shallow level, and remain ignorant of them, don’t pick up on red flags. And ignorance, is bliss, for many.

I also realise these skills have furthered my empathy capacity. Again a level of skill most people don’t have, as most people only have sympathy (some not even that) and falsely believe sympathy, is empathy.

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

  1. Love that ! I only wish I had that talent of picking up vibes previously — but now I am. Now I also Remember Things from the past that I Did Not pick up on. I was so trusting ! These memories from the past of things people said and did, now Hit me like a TON of Bricks !! Feels like trama.
    I have been In the Twilight Zone most of my life. But now, people can not gaslight me, without me knowing . Empowering. I just take a step back, and start to write (journaling) Now I see people and the actions thru different lens. !
    Thank you for this website -helps me to be more aware.
    Peace be with you.
