    643: Recognizing the Cycle of Ruptured Mother-Daughter Relationships

    643: Recognizing the Cycle of Ruptured Mother-Daughter Relationships

    Do you struggle with your relationship with your mother? Today, I’m talking to Khara Crosswaite Brindle. We explored mother-daughter estrangement and the process of healing from toxic relationships. We discussed her book on ruptured mother-daughter bonds and the common cycle of estrangement that includes questioning the relationship, potential relationship ruptures, and stages of grief, self-discovery, and redefining self-worth. We both shared personal experiences of emotionally unavailable mothers and the impact this had on their sense of self. They described struggles with people-pleasing, perfectionism, and boundary-setting due to a lack of modeling in childhood.
     
    Questions I asked:
    o   Where about do you live on the planet?
    o   Do you go to the gym now?
    o   What brought you into talking about Mother Daughter estrangement?
    o   What assumptions about estrangement need to be dispelled?
    o   What social stigmas are attached to this mother daughter estrangement?
    o   What would you speak to women today that have gone through something like that? So they can understand their value?
    o   How does one put boundaries in place when I may not even know what they should be?
    o   How do you realize you’re worthy of these boundaries?
    o   What's what would you say, separates these stages in the parental estrangement experience?
    o   What separates the stages in the parental estrangement experience according to Kara's model?
    o   What social stigmas are attached to mother-daughter estrangement?
    o   What would you tell women today who have gone through abandonment by their mothers to help them understand their value?
    o   How do people stop people-pleasing to your own detriment?
    o   What is the name of Kara's book and where can people find it?
