Mother Hunger with Kelly McDaniel Connectfulness Practice

    • Relationships

Kelly McDaniel, LPC returns to the podcast (she joined us on episode 28: https://connectfulness.com/episode/28-legacy-of-chronic-loneliness-kelly-mcdaniel (The Legacy of Chronic Loneliness)) to explore the legacy of maternal deprivation. Her upcoming book, https://kellymcdanieltherapy.com/books/ (Mother Hunger), soothes the legacy of shame that accompanies being under-mothered.
Mother Hunger addresses the constant search for love —nurturance, protection, and guidance— that may lead to a lifelong quest for what was missing. It’s not about critiquing how you were raised, rather it’s about learning how to heal and re-parent the hungry parts inside. Healing begins with knowing and naming what we are missing.
If you’re one of many who feel a sense of dread and grief as Mother's Day nears, these feelings may be related to Mother Hunger and I hope this episode helps you feel a little less alone.
