Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


That moment when a ‘which flower are you?’… says ‘Lily’

Lilly Hope Lucario, is my pen name.

I just didΒ an online ‘which flower are you?’ (based on my real name) and this was my result…

Flower Lily….

“You have an extensive sense of justice. Moral principles are important to you and must be protected. This is why you selflessly stand up for others and are always there when your loved ones need you”.

Whilst I don’t believe in these little quiz things….. it is funny that it picked my pen name and the reasons, are pretty spot on!

Following a Christian Counsellor’s advice about trolls ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

Facebook and YouTube, seem to be the worst, for trolls and shitty people. Ones who are provoking, and intentionally harming others.
