Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Not my circus, not my monkeys…

I increasingly understand the wisdom of this quote. There will always be many circus’s. And many ringleaders in the centre. And many monkeys surrounding the ringleader.

Hopefully some of the monkeys work out the motivation of the ring leader (narcissists), and step away, to be monkeys no more. But, if they choose to stay monkeys, that is their problem. Not mine.

We all make choices in life. Now mine are far healthier. I can figure out the ringleaders and the monkeys far quicker now. And get out of the circus, far quicker. And stay away.


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.
