When No Contact With Your Mother Is The Healthiest Option

The decision to go no-contact with a family member is a deeply personal one.

For some of us, healing the mother wound is possible while staying connected to your mother. In this scenario the healing actually creates a new, deeper connection between mother and daughter.

But for some of us, it’s impossible to heal ourselves and remain in connection with our mothers.’

Bethany includes practical tips throughout to help navigate this uncertain terrain.

Her key tips are:

1. Spend more time with people who support your decision and spend less time with the people that don’t.
