Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I invited a friend for Christmas Day, so he won’t be alone.


I have a friend, who has been treated really badly by his ex-wife. She is highly narcissistic and basically used him to emigrate and then dumped him. Long story, but even before she left him, I had already worked out the red flags of narcissism.

So, he is on his own, the other side of the world from his family and the great job he gave up to emigrate. But, he’s staying here, to be near his children.

He is a shy kind of person and doesn’t like to think he is imposing, but I’ve invited him to come and see us over Christmas, and invited him for Christmas Day. We have my in-laws staying with us, so one extra is no bother at all and my husband is doing all the cooking, and he’s totally okay with a friend coming too.

I hope he joins us, if that is what he would like. I hope he is not going to be alone on Christmas Day.

I’ve spent Christmas Day alone in the past, and it is awful. I was so depressed and felt so lonely. I wouldn’t want anyone to feel that way.



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.
