A hero is……

a hero is

I don’t buy into the average perception of what a hero looks like, based only on physical acts of bravery.

The greatest heros in life, go unrecognised, unnoticed.

They are those who endured terrible acts of suffering, abuse, child abuse, and yet came through it, and are decent people.

The persistence, endurance, resilience of many in this world, is incredible.

Enduring ongoing psychological, mental, emotional, physical pain, over prolonged periods of time, is horrendous. To come out of that, as a decent person, is amazing.

I do recognise this, as being the life of a hero.

If this is your life, I recognise ‘you’, as a hero.

Even if you don’t believe you are one.

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

One thought on “A hero is……

  1. This is beautiful. Thank you for writing this. I’ve been pretty rough over the last couple of days. I have issues from abuse in the past, deal with multiple mental illness and chronic physical pain, plus I’m trans and am on the badly dysphoric side of things. It wears me down a lot of the time, and it’s just heartwarming to see this post, because I sure as hell don’t feel like a hero of any kind.
    As always, I love your writings. Have a beautiful day sunshine, and take gentle care of yourself! ^.^
