The relationship between mother and daughter can be a contentious one. But what do you do when the person who is supposed to nurture you is physically, verbally, and/or emotionally abusive? If you’re a mother yourself, how do you ensure that what was done to you is not repeated in the next generation through you or by your own mother in a grandmother role?
Over the last five years, I’ve had the opportunity to sit and break bread with numerous women who have experienced toxic mothers. It is time to use our biblical, spiritual, and therapeutic tools to become better mothers to the children God has entrusted us (biological or within our community) with and heal from the pain caused by our own mothers who either didn’t know any better or were unwilling to change.
I’m launching a project soon! Be on the look out!
