Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

People who tell half the story, to cover their arse.


I’ve seen this so many times. People who are selective about which parts of a situation they own up to. People who deliberately avoid speaking about their actions that really caused harm.

Telling half a story and avoiding the parts that show you are in the wrong and hurt someone badly, is lying.

It’s dishonesty.

It’s a lack of courage.

It’s a lack of integrity.

It’s manipulating the truth, to cover your arse.

It’s manipulating the truth, to avoid responsibility and accountability.

It’s pathetic.

I don’t trust such people and people who engage in this behaviour, often show their true colours when pushed.

The worst part of being able to detect when this is occurring, is knowing how many people engage in this.

And when it’s someone you trusted, it makes the betrayal, painful.

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. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. incredible post. you so are incredible.. I do not think you realize how talented and Gifted you are. Gifted Writer,. Gifted Person with a heart.

  2. Your insight is unreal ! The fact that you are able to put all of this in writing……hard to believe. I know you do not have a ghost writer. Take the Mensa test

  3. I often wonder why you think a therapist. when you know more than they do !!!!!!!!!

    • It has been interesting understanding complex trauma and about abusive people, more than my counsellor. I think experience and insight are how some people understand it more. And an ability to express it, is not common either.
      I think that’s why people relate to my work.

  4. seriously….I wish I had the talent that you do !!!! sometimes I read something from you and a Lightbulb goes off Finally in my Brain. Can you work on getting some type of Cerification…..? counselor, trama therapist, book, seems like you should be in the genises book of records.

  5. the truth is an on going thing for me as I mature and come into awareness about the symptoms of this particular disorder. the truth is that their are trolls on the internet both ugly and spiritual as well and its unfortunate. predators vs aliens . a battle I don’t really want to get involved in yet sometimes humans being as they are either want to persecute or contain so that they can study but then again I find myself sceptical of all things on the internet, there is a movie though called joan of arc,mybe its a projection of my own but I’m dubious
