How to Begin Healing a Mother’s Wounds
Mother Untangling the subtle, overt, and unspoken signals about parenthood and mothers are necessary for wound healing. This introspection leads to a confrontation with the definitions of femininity, sovereignty, and womanhood on the inside. The following are some of society’s unsaid messages to mothers:
If parenting is challenging for you, it is all your responsibility.
If you aren’t superhuman, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Motherhood comes naturally to some “natural moms.” There is something wrong with you if you aren’t one of these people go to this site.
You’re expected to be able to handle it all with ease: well-behaved children, sexual attractiveness, a great job, and a stable marriage.
When your kid achieves or exceeds the goals you believed attainable for yourself, it may seem like rejection for women who have given so much to have children in our society. There may be a sense of owing, entitled to, or requiring validation from your children, which may be a subtle but effective manipulation. This dynamic may lead future generations of girls to shrink for their moms to feel validated and confirmed in their role as mothers, a part for which many have given so much yet gotten so little support and acknowledgment in return.
And for a child who needs her mother, losing herself to ease her mother’s sickness is often a subliminal decision made early in life that is not recognized as the source of underlying issues until she is an adult.
The Mother Wound occurs because moms don’t have a secure place to vent their frustrations about society’s sacrifices. And because girls still have an underlying fear of rejection if they don’t make the same sacrifices as their forefathers.
