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.

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
