S8E12: Mommy Issues: Addressing the Wounds From Your Mother-Daughter Relationship Dr. Thema

If you follow her on social media, then you have been inspired, empowered and enlightened by the daily quotes from our guest today,  Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis. Perhaps you remember when she was a guest on Season 3 Episode 12 in a discussion about healing intergenerational trauma. Or maybe you have listened to her Homecoming podcast. Well, today Dr. Thema returns for a much-needed conversation about mother-daughter relationships. Our mothers are individual adult beings and sometimes no matter the status of our relationship, it may be difficult to acknowledge mom’s identity outside of motherhood. In this powerful interview, Dr. Thema provides us with insight on navigating a healthy mother-daughter dynamic and how to have a difficult conversation. Get ready for the beautiful gems and ah-ha moments.

Quote of the Day:

"As your clarity grows, you recognize sometimes it's not about releasing but instead acknowledging what's already gone or what was never there"

-Dr. Thema

How to have a healing conversation with mom:

  • Identify what you want

  • Role Play and Practice

  • Seek consent to engage in the conversation

  • Naming the hurtful actions/events

  • Share how they made you feel

  • Ask for what you want

  • Be open to feedback
