Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

My ladies group, is going well :)

I decided to set up a ladies group, to meet up for coffee. I am hoping it will be a group where women will have some enjoyment, chatting and possibly making friends. It’s going really well. I’ve arranged two so far, and both have been really great, with a good vibe and good feedback. I can already tell which ladies will become the regular core group ladies.

Some of the ladies are quiet and some are really chatty, which is great, because I don’t feel the need to always keep talking, or be responsible for starting conversation. Which helps with my social anxiety issues. I’m really grateful for the diversity of the group.

Plus, I am mindful of not standing out, as I do not wish to become a beacon and target again, for the narcissistic types of people. And I’m aware and have discussed in counselling, why I am an easy target for narc types. So, now I am far more reserved and a lot less open in my conversation and just keeping it light, friendly and fun.

I’m glad I just get to join in conversation, in an easy and laidback manner. We had some laughs during the conversation, which was nice. The ladies are all aged 45 – 60, which is also great, as I relate more to mature minded people.

It is a very pleasant couple of hours and I’m glad the ladies are enjoying it.

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
