I hate Mother’s Day. It has never been a good day for me. It has always been a triggering day for me. Considering the mother that I had, I don’t see how it could be any different. When your own mother is your sexual abuser, Mother’s Day is a loaded and negative day, one that keeps on giving.
I want this year to be different. I want to set myself on the road on this day that I want to walk in my effort of healing from mother-daughter sexual abuse. I want to make things better for myself. I want to heal. I want to honor mothering in the world; in me, in others, in the world, from the earth.
Today I honor my ancestors, whom I came from, and without them I would not exist. I honor all the women who bore all the children of the world. I honor all the good mothers. I honor all the women who mother others and/or themselves. I honor all the men who mother others and/or themselves. I honor all the children who mother others. I honor all the animals and creatures in the world who mother others. I honor all the pets who mother us all. I honor nature who mothers and sustains us. The honor the Great Mother Earth who mothers us all. I honor me and all the mothering that I/we give to one another in our system and all the mothering that we lovingly give to others. Today I honor us all!
Good and healing thoughts to us all.
