Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


Actual abuse like ongoing physical or sexual abuse to a child, causes profound fear.

Actual abuse caused to a child’s body, should not be minimized, or compared to witnessing abuse.

Physical abuse and sexual abuse, are also emotional/mental/psychological abuse and neglect.

“Spare the rod, spoil the child” ……… is so widely misinterpreted, and neuroscience proves physical discipline, is abuse.

I am really disappointed in the Pope having this view.

Abuse is never ‘beautiful’.

I am aware that people have different views, but when it comes to child abuse……. it is a ‘non negotiable’ issue to me.

Feel sad now.

I thought more highly of the Pope…… than I should have.

I hate that child abuse…. is condoned and enabled in churches.

I hate that the Pope is now encouraging child abuse, due to this.

Now, there is a part of me that wants to completely ignore the Pope, and place him in the ‘enables child abuse ~ so avoid like the fucking plague’ pile.

Christians, should not be voicing to the world, that child abuse is okay.

Ever.
