Pete Walker explains grieving childhood complex trauma, so well. Pete will always be a special person in my life, as he voiced words I needed to hear and had never heard from anyone else. I am so thankful he gave me permission to use his work, to help reach others.
Grieving childhood complex trauma, is a lifelong journey.
When we are ready (that will be different for everyone), we can learn to manage it better, and learn how to have increasing joy in our lives. Which takes support, a lot of hard work and a willingness to do all that is needed. Healing and recovery, are hard work. I validate this.
But, that hole in our soul, where decent family were meant to be, never goes away. There is nothing that can fill that void. It is needed empathy to understand this.
