The peaceful daughter's guide : to separating from a difficult mother

Karen C. L. Anderson (Author)
"Every woman has a mother story. A story she uses to define herself, to limit herself, to react from, to blame from, and to shame herself from. Using her own story, the author provides a series of thought-provoking concepts and tools to help adult daughters rewrite and transform their mother stories from tales of blame, shame, and reaction, to narratives of resilience, empowerment, and autonomy. This is NOT another here's what's wrong with your mother book! In The Peaceful Daughter's Guide to Separating from a Difficult Mother, Karen shares her down-to-earth and light-hearted wisdom and personal examples to illustrate the process she used to feel better about herself, using her relationship with her mother as the lens through which to focus. Readers will learn: The difference between stories that hold you back and a story that sets you free. What emotions really are, how to literally feel and process them, and how to safely express them. The connection between thoughts and feelings. The art of setting empowered boundaries. How to stop shoulding when it comes to yourself and your mother. How to start truly taking care of yourself and meet your own needs."--Publisher's description
