I AM A GOOD MOTHER
Original Art By Nathalie Le Riche
"I must be a bad mother for my adult child blames me for his/her unhappiness!
IS MY THOUGHT TRUE? Yes, or No?
IS MY THOUGHT ABSOLUTELY TRUE? Yes, or No?
WHAT AM I WITH THIS THOUGHT?
I feel bad. I feel worthless. I feel guilty. I stuffed up. I am angry. I am sad. I am unhappy. I feel rejected. I feel I will never be good enough in the eyes of others. I am not a good person. I am damaged. I feel sorry for my child for having a mother like me. I am not lovable. No one truly loves me. I feel utterly alone. I feel bad.
WHAT WOULD I BE WITHOUT THIS THOUGHT?
I would look at all the good I did do. I would acknowledge I made mistakes and that I did the best I knew how at the time. I would forgive myself. I would say sorry. I would be understanding of the hurt my child has towards me. I would not take my child’s hurt personally. I would express my love. I would acknowledge when I retreat and attack out of hurt. I would be kind to myself and to my child. I would listen and be an effective communicator. I would choose wise words from a place of love to heal the relationship. I am love and I have an abundance of love to give. I would respect my child’s feelings. I acknowledge my child’s feelings. I would be there for my child with an open heart even when he/she is hurting and lashing out in anger.
WHAT IS ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT THIS THOUGHT?
I am a good mother even when my adult child blames me for his/her unhappiness.
My adult child’s unhappiness is a sign for me to look at how my behaviour contributed to the unhappiness and address the behaviour.
Whether I am a good mother or a bad mother, my adult child’s unhappiness is not mine to control.
I can accept I was a bad mother and now do something to become a good mother in the now."
