It goes without saying, how our parents treat us in our childhood, the behaviour they model, all of it impacts us on a very deep level. Their beliefs, habits, and behaviour shape our own making our relationship with our parents, our primary caretakers, fundamental to who we become as an adult. All of that makes this episode and the knowledge it shares critical for women seeking a healthier and happier life. In this episode, Bethany Webster educates us on the mother wound and how it impacts the quality of our life, how we show up in the world, and the beliefs that influence our choices and actions.
