Do you feel abandoned, alone, and detached from the self and the world? Have you experienced rejection from your mother or mother figure? Has you family been plagued by the unspoken resentments of female energies?
The mother wound occurs, when for some reason, the necessary bond needed to allow for us to form healthy self opinions, as well as develop trust for others, has been interrupted. When we are unable to acquire the necessary bond, we can develop insecure attachments, dependencies, become avoidant, suffer from anxiety, addiction, depression, and self-alienation.
Some mother wounds are passed down through the generations and are the result of suppressed resentment, anger, or frustration. As women have struggled to gain the right to have an identity separate from raising families, along the way, many have fallen victim to their own feelings of ambivalence. When mothers resent their children or resent the sacrifices made for them, bonds are corrupted. Children then internalize these messages and falsely believe they are the reason for their mother’s inability to love and nurture them.
We can break the cycle by learning to be honest about what we feel, what we struggle with, and what we need. As a society, we must offer parents the absolute help they need to be able to BE the nurturer, protector, and champion their children need. The most powerful influence in a child’s life will hinge on the quality of their maternal relationships.
Children of narcissistic parents, who are now suffering from codependency symptoms, may be struggling to learn how to love themselves after narcissistic abuse. Narcissists tend to attract people pleasers, or codependent personalities. Because codependents are eager to please, because they seek outside validation, they are easy targets for narcissistic lovers, and friends.
It is not easy to learn how to love yourself after narcissistic abuse, but with the right codependency recovery tools, it is possible. It is even possible to find love after codependency.
