Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

For many, it is easier to defend poor behaviours/thinking, than to face the truth.


Many people throughout my life, have been quick to defend poor, unhealthy behaviours, than to face them with honesty.

I see it all around me. It is a default position for most people. The truth, is too hard to deal with. Especially about self. It hurts the ego, to hear truth. So most people avoid, deny, defend etc.

This is why cognitive distortions and lies, are so common. And little wisdom as a result.

And why those who peddle in thinking/views/behaviours, that support cognitively distorted thinking…. are popular. People flock to it, as is supports their own unhealthy thinking needs.

It makes me sad, to see how much of this goes on. Because I see the hurt and harm it causes, the deeper consequences, the bigger picture.

I see the hurt it causes. And that doesn’t sit right with my soul. It makes me cry, if I think about it enough.

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. Agreed. Zero growth or healing comes from lies. As the saying goes, the truth shall set you free.
