‘A wounded daughters acceptance of her mother’s inability to love requires willingness and courage. Willingness to accept the truth about her mothers limitations and courage to change the way she responds without self blame.’
This quote is an exert from a series of empowerment training’s I’m writing to honor the wounded daughters of abusive black mothers.
We cannot have honest conversations about wanting to end white supremacy, until we’re ready to raise our hands and do the healing work required to free ourselves internally.
I still have moments of pain and grief around my mother’s behavior, but I stay committed to the healing work because greatness is my birthright.
I also want a loving, mother experience for my little Plaintain, Zuri. 🙂
The more I learn and speak, the more I understand the suffering in the community.
I want you to know that you are not alone.
There is hope.
When you empower a women you empower a nation.
You spoke, I listened.
Today, I’m sharing an opportunity for wounded daughters to have a compassionate, non-judgmental space to explore this topic and begin to find peace. Details are below.
