Have you ever thought about the legacy you received from your mom? I remember reading a book called Becoming my Mother when I was a teenager. The author was conflicted and stressed over the fact that she was behaving in ways that were typical of her mom, ways that she had disliked or frowned upon while growing up. By the end of the book, she had embraced it and had settled into the similarities between her and her mom. But what if the mother-daughter relationship left you with scars? What if the memories you have of your mom are more negative than positive?
It’s Momplicated walks you through the healing process. The writers gently inspire you to uncover the memories of your mother-daughter relationship and discover your momplications. As you work through your memories, they share stories of other women and their mothers – not for you to compare lives and to feel burdened, but for you to realize that healing is possible.
