Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

When it matters, it hurts more.


hurts it mattered

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.

  1. See i got told it didn’t matter and that hurt even more to.

    • I understand how this feels. Like you, I have been told all my life, that all I have endured, doesn’t matter and to just get over it.
      People who suggest this, lack empathy, lack understanding of trauma and simply speak words that self serve, with no awareness of how that affects those they spew those words at.
      What we endured does matter. It always matters. It was always horrendous and we didn’t deserve a single second of it.
      The way we are treated by people, does matter.
      It is further trauma, to be told the abuse already endured and how it affects us, doesn’t matter.
      I validate that further trauma for what it is and validate how painful it is.
      I understand my friend.
