Despite moms being important figures in our life, some are better than others, and Bethany explores the Mother Wound and the complicated relationship daughters have with them. How then do we acknowledge the Mother Wound? For Bethany, some of the first steps that a person can take are to reflect on the problems in one’s relationship with their mom. For many women, it’s about being able to be authentic; feeling the need to be smaller or less real to protect them in some way. Another step to take is to explore what irks you about your relationship with your mom and how that plays out in real-time. An important question to also ask yourself is that if you could have it any way you wanted, how would you interact with her? What would that relationship be like and how would it be different?
