It certainly happens to the best of us. One day we realize that we are indeed turning into our mothers. It gets even more frightening when we realize that our daughters are turning into us.
Though this is often good, as we usually aspire to be just like mom, sometimes it's just plain scary. For me it is scary when I see the same controlling tendencies that I hate about myself showing up in my young girls.
We all pass down a legacy. Usually the things we pass to our children are positive and wonderful. But sometimes, those things are not so pretty.
Control is one of those things. We live it out, our daughters watch, and the cycle gets repeated.
It's time to put an end to this generational curse. We can walk in freedom, and not just for us but for our daughters.
This month I will be joining with The Nester's Write for 31 Days series to talk about this touchy and deeply personal topic.
Would you join me? If not for you, why not for your children?
