Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It was 44 years, before I learned this.


This is truly necessary advice, for those who have been abused. In fact, it is good advice for anyone.

do yourself a favour

Often those who have been abused, feel it necessary to keep updated about their abusers. It’s a vigilance and fear issue. Understandably so.

There is a quote “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”. I used to believe there was wisdom in this. And I’m sure there is in some circumstances, but not in mine.

Now, I realise I do not need these people in my mind, my head, my thoughts anymore than is absolutely necessary.

It improves my life and my emotional wellbeing, to keep away from those who sought to harm me.

It is an act of self love, self compassion and healthy boundaries, to not allow toxicity, into our lives, of any kind.

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. I agree, although it was a long way to get here.
