Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Getting to know a new, big groups of friends

Today, I am going for lunch with a new group of friends I have kindly been introduced to by a friend. I met some of them a few days ago and was invited to lunch. Which is very kind.

They seem a lovely group of ladies. In their late 40’s, 50’s, which is great for me, as I relate to older people more. They also are intelligent, nice, decent, well mannered, well spoken people, I noted. Which is also great for me.

So, taking it easy and not going to dive in. I also won’t be letting them know about my past etc, not until I know them really well. I realise my boundaries on what I shared in the past, were not healthy, and I learned the hard way, repeatedly, the perils of this. Hopefully my friend won’t reveal anything to them, and I will be asking her not to do this and to leave my past and my journey to me to speak about, if and when I am ready.

I’ve been socialising a lot more lately and it feels good. I am a sociable person and although I need to limit this, so not be overwhelmed, I do enjoy the company of mature people.

Trying to ‘go with the flow’ in life a bit more, but in a far healthier way, than I have in my life previously.

Update, it went really well, very relaxed atmosphere, at a lovely location to meet for lunch. Right on the water in a lovely restaurant. The ladies are all nice, decent, easy to talk to and very friendly. It was nice conversation, in a nice place.

I really enjoyed it.

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
