Perhaps you never felt close to your mom. Maybe she left you feeling less than, like you could never do or say anything right. Maybe she was physically or emotionally abusive, and you aren’t sure how to love or trust others in intimate relationships now. Maybe you busted your ass to get her approval and acceptance, but it never came. Maybe your mother relied on you too much, forcing you to grow up too fast. Maybe your mom made sure you dressed and looked the part, but you longed for her and aren’t sure why. Maybe she was never around, and you feel responsible.
When you read that, and you felt a twinge of pain buried inside, THAT’S the Mother Wound. It’s easy to ignore it + stay busy enough to forget that it’s there… until Mother’s Day comes around— and then BAM, feelings you thought you had worked through bubble up… leaving you hurt, angry, disappointed and confused all over again. This is amplified when children become adults who then become parents themselves.
This is the first topic we will cover in today’s Conscious Mama’s *pop up* Circle, and the key to breaking generation cycles. If you missed out on the link invite for today, be sure you sign up for my email list to get in on the next day/time/mtg info (in bio). The CMC will be an intimate gathering for those of you looking to dive deeper into some of the work I share here. I have two more topics lined up (swipe to see) that I hope to get in before Mother’s Day, so don’t miss out. It’s free, through zoom, hosted by me. 💓
