Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I crave & need peace, far more than I crave or need people.

My gardens and gardening, are a real part of my healing. It is where I retreat to, whenever I am struggling, emotional, hurt, irritable… as well as where I go for relaxation, to think and to pray.

Everyone needs to find a way to cope, manage and find some peace. My gardens are mine.

It hasn’t escaped my notice, that being alone and not being around people, is an increasing need.

It’s bizarre that I have spent 40 years of my life craving being with people and ‘needing’ people …….. and now I prefer and have more peace – being completely alone.

In the past, I had a huge fear of being alone. And now this has turned into my greatest need.

Aloneness, is now my friend. Not my enemy.

Some would say I have swung from one side of the continuum, to the other. And neither are healthy. Well, people are not where I find peace.

And I now crave peace, far more than I crave people.

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
