Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Actions often express priorities.

action expresses priority

When someone makes it clear from their actions, that you are not a priority, or even valued equally to others – I don’t ignore it anymore.

It acts as a reality check for me. As happened today. And although it’s not pleasant, I’d rather know where I stand, than believe a situation to be different to the reality.

I’ve learned in life, the only person that I can rely/depend on, is myself. It’s the way it’s always been. And it continues. I’d rather deal with the honest reality, than delude myself. Unlike many, I don’t self soothe with untruths, to make my life easier. I face the reality, which can be harsh and emotionally difficult.

But, the path to truth, reality and honesty, is never an easy road.



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.
