Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It’s okay to miss people.



miss you 2

I miss people I can’t have in my life anymore. Even some that have really hurt me. I want to not miss them, but I do.

I know this is normal and that no matter the reason for someone not being in your life anymore, if they meant a lot to you, then missing them happens. And it hurts.

It’s sad when relationships of any kind end, due to harm caused, if it’s repeated or ongoing harm, or things that cannot be tolerated any longer. It’s so sad that people hurt each other, lie, don’t sort things out appropriately, or in a way that respects the relationship.

I know this is why God wants reconciliation where possible. But it needs both parties to do what’s necessary.

I’m feeling overwhelming sadness right now, which is why I’m blogging it, to get it out.

So terribly sad.

Grieving is horrible.

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. Feeling this grieving pain too..It really is tough and I can relate to what you are going through <3..I'm going onto 3 months no contact with my father and he is doing nothing to make things bearable, as I expected. It really is so sad but I guess we have to hold onto the safe, healthy people we do still have in our life.x

    • I’m so sorry this time of no contact is hard and it is okay to acknowledge how hard it is. Especially when it’s a parent. It is very sad and I validate that.

      Grieving is so hard and when it’s due to horrible reasons like abuse, it’s a double whammy, of loss and grieving, but all the abuse related emotions that go with that.

      Yes, hold on to the healthy safe people, the people who you deserve. You need and deserve love, respect and healthy people ❤ ❤
