Rejection is an ugly word. Our children feel rejected. They were in some forms rejected in early life. Now they are often rejected by peers, neighbors or even some family members because of behaviors. But what about moms?
We have to look at the rejection of moms accurately. Our children are not rejecting US. It is not me as an individual. It is easy to slide into the thought "Am I that bad?" when they cannot love us. They reject motherhood. Mom's are dangerous. Love is dangerous. They were taught a form of love that is warped. They continue to see that as love and it hurts. I am working hard on remembering I am not being rejected as a person. I am rejected as a mom and it wouldn't matter who I am. The best mom you can picture in your head would be rejected. Take care of yourself, your healthy relationships and keep nurturing. We can do it together.
