Mother’s Day can be tricky for many of us, and our relationships with our mothers are as different as each of us is different.
Self-mothering is a way to take care of yourself. Some people never really outgrow their relationship with their mothers. If you feel like your mother has been controlling and critical, or even abusive in some way, it's normal to have trouble taking care of yourself. This can manifest as not setting boundaries, having trouble saying no, and feeling anxious about making decisions. Self-mothering is a self-nurturing practice that helps us heal by identifying our wounds and letting go of negative emotions that we've been holding onto for years. It's also about learning how to treat yourself as an adult who deserves love, attention, and care just as everyone else does! In today’s podcast, I share a special and powerful piece of writing about our relationships with our mothers and encourage you to join me in a unique habit-changing process that I am embarking on.
