Complex Trauma – is interpersonal abuse – caused by ongoing or repeated trauma – caused by people.
Experts will tell you – complex trauma is only healed within safe, trusting, healthy, caring relationships.
This is how the wounds of being abused and traumatised by people – can be fully healed.
Many survivors, do not have this.
Many do not have caring, safe partners.…
Many do not have caring, safe families.
Many do not have adequate therapists.
And that can hinder healing.
So, whilst we can do many things to help improve our wellbeing, those wounds of fear of trust, fear of abandonment, fear of people etc ….. may not be fully healed.
And I want to recognise that and validate that.
Many people do not have the ‘best case scenario’ for healing.
And that makes this journey, so much harder.
It is necessary to talk about this and highlight this – for all those who relate to this.
And this is another reason why journeys should never be compared.
I would like to add as well……….. even when a complex trauma survivor has a ‘best case scenario’ for healing… this does not guarantee full healing.
Complex trauma is known by trauma professionals – to be very difficult to heal. Obviously, with support and love from healthy partners, family and an adequate therapist to help – does increase the potential for healing.
So, it needs to be addressed and understood how much harder it is, without the best case scenario situation.
And this is something many mental health professionals do not take into account when writing about healing and recovery. They tend to consider the best case scenario situations.
But, that is not the reality, for many. And they are not helping those who don’t have what is required, to have a better chance of healing and recovery.
