I wanted my mother’s approval…for a long time.

I mean a REALLY. LONG. TIME.

Like all the way up until last week.

 

(Did I mention I’m a grown woman?)

 

My mother is the one who gave me life.

She is the woman I most wanted to be like.

She is the woman I most wanted to like me.

 

I thought my mother was the most important woman in the world.

The most important person in the world.

 

As a mother, we might even think we should be the most important person or woman in our child’s world.

Or maybe we think our daughter or child is the most important person in our world.

 

Sometimes we equate importance in someone else’s eyes with our being important.

Especially when they are the eyes of our mother or our child.

 

Often we think that being unimportant in someone else’s eyes makes us unimportant.

Especially when they are the eyes of our mother or our child.

 

Sometimes we choose to believe that being important to our mothers or our children is more important than being important to ourselves.

 

I believed that for a long time.

 

But I don’t think that’s true anymore.

 

Whatever our mother or child thinks of us has no bearing on the matter of whether we matter or not.

 

I am the most important woman in my world.

And…

You are the most important woman in your world.

 

That’s just true.

 

Even if I’m your daughter.

Or you’re my daughter.

 

Be the most important person in your world.

 

Because you are.

I am intrigued and inspired by the relationship we daughters have with our mothers. I’ve studied my own experience as a daughter and know that I have let my viewpoint about my mother, her life, how she sees the world, and how I think  she see me to have a dramatic affect on how I have lived my own life. 

There is another way.

I will be offering free classes on The Daughter’s Path  where I will share my own a-ha moments and journey as a daughter. There will be time for Q&A and coaching. Enter your name and email in the box in the upper right corner if you would like to be notified of class details.
