Navigating Mothers Day After Childhood Trauma

Today I want to talk about the complexities of navigating Mother’s Day for people who have experienced childhood trauma, specifically abuse or neglect from their mothers.

My hope for you is that this episode will give you the confidence to engage with Mother’s Day the way you need to, challenging societal expectations and the pressure to conform to normative expressions of appreciation, like sending cards or gifts.

Episode highlights:

05:18 Understanding the Dynamics of Trauma and Motherhood

14:14 Navigating Your Feelings and Decisions on Mother’s Day

17:21 Reflecting on the Complexity of Motherhood and Respect
