Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Empathy for complex trauma survivors, at thanksgiving – looks like this ~ Lilly Hope Lucario


Too many un-empathic people, tell other people they should be feeling positive emotions, when many people are in a place where they cannot, and do not have to.

I don’t police how complex trauma survivors ‘should’ be feeling. Or shame them in the process, by suggesting they should feel or be doing better than they are. Especially at holiday times, when emotions and loneliness, are even worse.

People in very painful, dark places, cannot feel positive emotions, and that is okay.

And it takes someone who has been there, and knows how much empathy is needed – to express this.

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
