On ‘Mental Breakthroughs,’ host Patricia Wu and guest therapist and healer Josie Rosario discuss the bond with our mothers is deeply influential, but sometimes, even the best intentions can leave unintended wounds.

Acknowledge the Pain

The first step in healing is recognizing that your mother wound is real. It’s okay to feel hurt, even if it seems disloyal to your mother.

The Path to Healing

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Start by reading about mother wounds, consider support groups, or seek individual therapy with someone specializing in this type of trauma.
