I became a Mom at 22, and a single Mom by 24, defying cultural expectations of how life was “supposed” to be. I appeared fine on the exterior but inside I was extremely anxious; playing out patterns and behaviours I couldn’t make sense of. From a young age I adopted the story that something was innately wrong with me and found myself attracting relationships and experiences that recycled toxic, abusive, and painful patterns. I questioned my ability as a Mother, my ability to achieve anything “notable”, and was constantly comparing myself to others. At the core, I struggled with who I truly was underneath all the roles, labels, and perceptions.I desperately wanted something different, so I entered therapy and slowly began to shift old ways of thinking and behaving into thoughtful, brave, authentic ways of living and communicating.
