Welcome to the Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T where we will approach the difficult topics of life, have inspiring guests, and bring empowerment to all. This community is a place where we can be who we are instead of who others want us to be.

Do you struggle with your relationship with your mother? Today, I’m talking to Khara Crosswaite Brindle. We explored mother-daughter estrangement and the process of healing from toxic relationships. We discussed her book on ruptured mother-daughter bonds and the common cycle of estrangement that includes questioning the relationship, potential relationship ruptures, and stages of grief, self-discovery, and redefining self-worth. We both shared personal experiences of emotionally unavailable mothers and the impact this had on their sense of self. They described struggles with people-pleasing, perfectionism, and boundary-setting due to a lack of modeling in childhood.

 

Questions I asked:

o   Where about do you live on the planet?

o   Do you go to the gym now?

o   What brought you into talking about Mother Daughter estrangement?

o   What assumptions about estrangement need to be dispelled?

o   What social stigmas are attached to this mother daughter estrangement?

o   What would you speak to women today that have gone through something like that? So they can understand their value?

o   How does one put boundaries in place when I may not even know what they should be?

o   How do you realize you’re worthy of these boundaries?

o   What's what would you say, separates these stages in the parental estrangement experience?

o   What separates the stages in the parental estrangement experience according to Kara's model?

o   What social stigmas are attached to mother-daughter estrangement?

o   What would you tell women today who have gone through abandonment by their mothers to help them understand their value?

o   How do people stop people-pleasing to your own detriment?

o   What is the name of Kara's book and where can people find it?
