I see the push to generalise all trauma as equal, but this is not correct. Research and neuroscience, continually show childhood complex trauma, causes greater damage and life long consequences.

This needs to be validated, not invalidated or minimized.

I refuse to allow anyone to minimize or invalidate the 20 years of trauma I endured, which profoundly affected my whole life.

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.
