In this week's episode, I share with you my personal relationship with my mother. As a little girl, my mother and I did not have the best relationship. I rarely told her what was going in my life, at school or my relationships. My reason being is because I never felt as though she would understand me. My mother was the disciplinary of our family. Anytime you got in trouble at school, my mother was the one who gave the beating, put you on punishment etc.
So when I left for college I viewed that as my way to distance myself even further from her. I rarely called while away at college. I went home often, but I never really shared with her my full college experience. It wasn't until I had my daughter in May 2007 that my mother and I relationship began to rebuild. For the first year of my daughter being born, my mother was with me every step of the way. I was dealing with an emotional break up with my daughter father and my mother was there to remind me that all things will work and be ok. During that year she shared stories with me about her past relationships and how she moved on from them. When she opened up to me as if it was two friends talking, I started to see her in a different light.
As you continue to listen to the episode, you will hear more examples on how my mother and I have built an unforgettable bond. I encourage you to allow your mom to be who she needs to be for you. I know it may seem as though she doesn't understand you nor does she allow you to do much, but I promise it's only because her first assignment as your mother is to protect you.
