Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

From a girl, to a (wiser) woman.

I’ve gone through these stages. Which are common in women who have been sexually abused as children.

Now, I am very much at the point of knowing my physical shell, is nothing more than that. My value is not determined, by my outer shell, or sexuality. I no longer need validation from others.

What is important to me now, is character, integrity, values, inner strength, virtues and heart/soul.

Looks, outer beauty, image etc – all the shallow and immature focusses, I am no longer remotely interested in. And I am no longer interested in people who are still stuck at this level. I prefer and gravitate towards mature people, who have or strive for the same focusses, as I do.


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.
