When humans are defined by just one identity (such as ‘Mother’), they are robbed of all of their depth and expertise, all of their light and shadow, they are robbed of the space to be fully human. I think this is why the mother-child relationship is so complicated; so often, both the child and the mother exist in this tension of trying to see their mothers/themselves as people beyond just a mother.

However, as we grow in this awareness we can work towards embracing our mothers as the fully dimensional women and humans that they are.
