In this episode, I read a blog post I wrote on May 1, 2020, after being interviewed for the Moms Meet Sanity online campaign. The title of the post is: The Evolving Relationship Between a Mother and Her Children.

It was also five days before I left my hometown, not knowing COVID was just getting started, and leaving my young adult children behind. They smiled as I drove away to start my new life in a beach town, but I was in shock I think, because I had no idea what was next except that I would be defending my dissertation two weeks after moving into my new place. 

I was overwhelmed, lots of people were overwhelmed, and as I drove away from my smiling children, I stopped and asked them to take another photo looking sad.

Our starting point with our children is our own experience as a child. Whether you remember your childhood as joyful, mediocre, or traumatic, our deepest and most ingrained patterns of how we relate to others were established during this time.

These patterns helped us survive childhood AND they often run their course at some point during our lives. They stop working . . .
