Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Taking a break from my personal Facebook.


blogging break

I stopped using Facebook for quite a while, for various reasons and I enjoyed the long break. I started using it again a few months ago, only for personal friends and those currently in my life.

But, I feel a little break is needed, for several reasons. Which are not needed to be hashed out. We all need to do what’s best for our lives and I have learned that is necessary for me too. My friends will keep in contact by other means.

Social media, is a not an imperative need in life. Not mine, anyway. Not in my personal life. I want to live in real life.



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. I understand this and I deleted my personal Facebook account awhile back. Now I have one however it is non-identifying to anyone except those I let know (so in other words I have zero family contacts on my Facebook and intend on keeping it that way). I only am on it to talk with others who I identity with…due to histories.. anyway.. I am happy and proud you are doing this for yourself. (Hugs)

    • I think social media has it’s place, but has become the way many people interact now, and it’s replacing real conversation and interaction.
      I want real interaction and not waste my time on social media.
      I have different interests, to those on my FB friend list.
      I also have no family contacts, and this is a healthy choice for those of us, with toxic family.

      • Yes, I agree I long for real, face-to-face interactions. Which I am slowly realizing and trying to integrate, the whole fear of others is a bit debilitating so I am learning to be patient and take the baby steps to freedom.
