Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

How you achieve success…. matters.

1 Comment

We live in a society that promotes ‘success’ as being the test of worthiness.

Even severe abuse survivors, are not worthy, if they are not a ‘recovery success story’.


Success, is often seen to be okay, no matter how you achieve it.

‘Success at any cost’…. is how narcissistic/psychopathic people, are encouraged and hailed as ‘gods’.

It matters to me, how people treat others.

Success at any cost, is vile.

Success at the cost of those in your life, is deeply selfish.

And I don’t condone it, or encourage it.

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. Thank you for writing this Lilly. ❤ ❤ There are some very successful, well-known people who do not use their platforms for good, but for their own agenda. It is saddening and this blog post is a good reminder of why success needs to come with integrity in order to be truly considered success!
