Reblog: No, what was meant to kill you, does not always make you stronger ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

I agree with this. I actually hate the saying ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’.

Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

That old saying ‘what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger’ – is a platitude and not reality for many.

Unlike many people, I don’t put inappropriate expectations and demands on survivors of complex trauma and those with severe mental health issues, like Complex PTSD.

Empathy and compassion, is meeting someone where they are at and not shaming them for not ‘doing better’.

I see a lot of shaming attitudes out there and I can see how these can push people over the edge and can make some suicidal.
