Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

My Trauma History Is Why I Advocate For Those Who Have Endured Complex Trauma ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

When I write about complex trauma and the life impacting suffering caused by it, I really do mean I understand it. I have empathy for survivors of many different types of abuse, because I have endured so many, over extended periods of time.


I have come to understand, unless someone has endured the depths of heinous abuse and suffering I have endured, or unless they have great levels of empathy to try to understand how it would feel……… their opinion about my healing, doesn’t matter.

I advocate for people who have suffered terribly, because I’ve been there. And it’s why I have no expectations, or demands as to how survivors ‘should’ be coping. However people are doing, is okay with me.

I do see many people out there giving their ‘advice’ about how abuse survivors ‘should’ be doing. And I see the damage it causes.

Empathy is vital and complex trauma survivors need gentle encouragement and validation.
