Today, on Mother’s Day, as many celebrate the special woman who gave them life, not all find cause for celebration. Instead, for some who grew up living with domestic violence, it can be a difficult day. Rather than recount the love of their mother and the precious moments spent together growing up, some struggle with painful memories that still weigh them down.
How can you bring yourself to celebrate, if growing up in that home, your mother constantly told you that you were WORTHLESS – constantly reminded you of who you would never be? How do you heal your self-esteem and feel ACCOMPLISHED when one of the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally, see the best in you, and help build your self-esteem for you trampled over it instead?
