Mother’s Day might look different for you, and that’s okay. ⠀
For some, Mother’s Day is a joyful holiday that celebrates a loving relationship with a mother, grandmother, or mother figure. However, for others the holiday might bring up a painful mix of emotions for a variety of reasons. ⠀ ⠀ This great illustration from @CurlyTherapist on Instagram highlights just a handful of the many experiences that can complicate relationships with mothers. Whatever your relationship with your mother may be, I hope you feel seen and allow yourself to feel whatever emotions naturally come up for you.
Also sending love to those who have lost their mothers and are coping with resurfacing feelings of grief this weekend. Please remember that you are not alone in your sadness.
