Mother Dearest
Play • 31 min

Mother’s Day is this weekend and we thought that it would be interesting to discuss the complexities of the mother daughter relationship. Then, we actually thought about it and decided that maybe therapy should come first before we let ourselves fall deep into the emotional well, that is our own relationships with our mothers. So… I poured us a cocktail and we decided to watch Bad Moms instead.

The perfect mom is an unattainable illusion. The expectations placed on mothers are ridiculous. If we buy into these ideals of what motherhood is supposed to look like, we will never be good enough and always be unhappy.

  • How will you celebrate Mother's Day?
  • How will you practice being kinder and more patient with yourself?
