Relating to or characteristic of a mother, especially in being cared for, protective and kind.
That’s how the Oxford dictionary defines mothering. Maybe you have a different idea of what it means to you.
Regardless of how we explain it, mothering is something that we all need and I believe, never outgrow the longing for.
I have several brave, gorgeous women clients right now who are working their way through the residue left from a lack of mothering. Although this looks different for each of them, the one thing they all have in common is an ache for and a wound around being mothered with love, care, attention, guidance and acceptance.
Part of my role is to help them learn how to self- mother. While this is necessary and beautiful, there is also another piece about finding mothering in your world that I am bringing in to today’s video.
I hope it brings you some comfort and ease if you see yourself here.
