Today, I received the following email, from a psychologist. I have removed the name, for privacy.
My name is ******, 30 years old, from ********* , I work as a Children’s Psychologist. I follow your FB page and have decided to write you now following what you wrote about Mother’s day coming up and what it’s like for you.
I wanted to let you know that I appreciate so much how strong you are in facing the horrible things you have gone through. I appreciate so much the strength, and the special – so humane – character in the way you write your blog.
I am deeply sorry for the things you have lost, Lilly. I too know the horror of growing from a childhood that was taken.
And I hope these next few days go by as easily as possible for you.
I very much believe in your strength Lilly, to change your life and make it better for you than it has been for you.
Your strength in facing the hard past is very inspiring.
I also wanted to thank you for your blog from a personal place. Your blog has helped me in super-hard moments, and made me feel less alone in them. And besides that, I think your blog is a historic milestone and an important step to social awakening that needs to happen and will happen sometime in my opinion, around the issue of childhood trauma and how it effects the development of individuals.
Warm regards to you,
I am so thankful for emails like this, that help me to keep knowing how important my work is.
I know it is my calling in life, to reach out to other survivors, with empathy, compassion, honesty, courage, validation, understanding and in a ‘safe’ way, that other survivors of complex trauma, can read and take comfort from.
To know mental health professionals, see my work as a ‘historic milestone’ – is amazing.
I have received so much feedback lately, as to the significance and meaningfulness, of my journey and in sharing it with others.
