5. If you aren’t careful, you can marry your mother.
What I mean is that we can subconsciously search and find a mate that acts the same way, including the neglect and criticism that our mother subjected us to.
Be careful and search for clues indicating similar actions from your childhood.
I can’t say for sure if my mother was lacking in proper love. I do remember instances of feeling criticized and alone, but it was hard to differentiate from the obvious abuse and neglect I suffered from other members of my family. My mother loved me, whether it was healthy or not, and I do see some of these symptoms in my life.
If you see these things reflected back on you, please seek help.
It’s unfair to travel the remainder of your life in constant avoidance and ambivalence, damaged from the lack of a healthy mother/daughter relationship.
Healing is always closer than you think, and paving a way for future mothers and daughters is one of the most important tasks at hand.
Spread the love, healthy love, and appreciate those who took the time to love correctly!
