We know that the way we have been raised will impact the way we are as adults. A less known fact is that, if a mother does not heal her own emotional wounds, there is a high likelihood that her trauma can then be transferred onto her children, especially her daughters.
I have invited a maternal narcissistic abuse recovery coach Michaila Tyson to help me explore this sensitive subject. Michaila herself has spent a significant amount of time healing her own mother wound and exploring generational trauma. It has allowed her to arrive at a place where she is now able to help so many other women by offering group sessions as well as one-to-one coaching.
While we are recording, Michaila is somewhere in the Costa Rican jungle. This adds an extra special background vibe with mild bird sounds, passing by cars and the buzz of the fan to our episode.
In the conversation Michaila explains how to identify covert narcissists, who do not display the grandiose sense of self-importance usually associated with the condition, we discuss potential signs indicating that we might have grown up with a narcissistic mother, we cover the feeling of guilt and sense that we might be disrespecting our mothers by exploring our mother wounds, and Michaila explains why it is so important not to ignore this potential trauma and allow ourselves to become the ones breaking the generational cycle.
