A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Increasing emotional resilience ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

I always know how I am doing when I am tested. Recently two issues came up, that even 6  months ago – would have reduced me to an emotional wreck.

And yet, I have remained calm, and focussed on what I need to do to stay that way.

Trust issues and people lying/misleading/manipulating me – are always triggers. Yet, now I have come to understand I don’t need to trust anyone, only myself. I’ve let go of any need to trust anyone else.

And I have come to the point of knowing, other people’s issues – are not my issues. I don’t need to internalise them. I can understand – that is their issues and I can see they are in no way, a reflection of me, or my worth.

I also assumed I would feel very emotional about a sociopath who has caused me trauma, via cyber abuse, threats, intimidation and stalking, going to jail. Yet, again, I was calm, thankful, yet not emotional.

I am definitely able to deal with my emotional reactions and triggers, far better atm.

I am also far better at self care, and taking my focus away from trauma related issues. Which I have no doubt has increased by emotional resilience. I’m okay at seeing this progress in my healing. And I am so aware, my healing and progress is taking exactly the right amount of time, for my unique journey and my unique needs.

Which is something I advise everyone to focus on. Their own journey and needs, and not what others are saying it should be, or how quick it should be.

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
