People who have written books about PTSD and Complex PTSD, are not going to get me to promote their books, by saying ‘everyone can heal just the way they did’.
I know too much about PTSD and Complex PTSD.
I know everyone’s healing journey is different.
I know what works for one person, does not work for others.
EMDR is a common example of a therapy that is hailed by too many as a cure for PTSD. It works for some, doesn’t work for some, and has made symptoms worse for others. And it’s not suitable for everyone. And it’s only as good as the therapist. It’s not a cure for all.
I think some people who claim to be cured of PTSD, really have an ego fest about how if they can heal a certain, way – so should/could everyone.
They don’t stop to think everyone’s journey is different. They don’t stop and think each persons symptoms, trauma and experiences, are different. They don’t stop to think maybe their symptoms are not as severe as others….
Nope, they just assume because they claim to have healed a certain way…… everyone can. Which is rubbish.
So when someone is promoting their book, I listen carefully to ‘how’ they are promoting it.
If they say they are healed and people need to do the same as they did, I am not interested.
If they say, this is their personal journey to processing trauma, and learning to manage and reduce their unique symptoms, so this ‘may’ be helpful to others…….. I am far more inclined to listen. And that is how I would promote my book.
Insight, is important to me.
Helping people, is important to me.
But, lacking insight, assuming your journey is the ‘only’ journey to healing, assuming your symptoms are the worst they can be, assuming the therapies you used are suitable for all and giving fake/false hope, to make money…. is not okay. That’s not about helping people.
I deal only with reality, truth and insight.
