Toxic Motherhood
In this episode I'm sharing my personal perspective and experience with toxic motherhood. Being a mother is a difficult job but it's ten times more difficult if you're a broken and unhealed mother. That untreated trauma will show up in very toxic ways that will effect your kids in ways you don't even realize until the damage has been done. Please listen and share this with every mother that will listen.
