This was tweeted today, and is an example of why I do this. Why I share my journey with others, why I write and post and have a website.

People see I understand. And understand what most people don’t. They see I can express the deeper aspects of this journey. Were people read about my journey and they then can understand themselves better. They understand my empathy for others. They see I have a level of honesty and integrity that makes them feel safe. And trust and safety are huge issues for us.

It means a lot to me, to have this kind of feedback from other survivors of complex trauma.

It means I am doing something meaningful and helpful for others.

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.

One thought on “This is why I reach out to others.

  1. Yes, thankyou for your generosity in expressing yourself so honestly. This is one of the few places I feel safe and understood. I find that others who don’t suffer from complex trauma don’t seem to have the capacity to see the damage and pain created on all levels by the abuses we have endured.
