Recent studies show that up to 20% of midlife women have problematic relationships with their mothers and that many women wish they had better relationships. Having a difficult mother can set a woman up for having difficult relationships, a lack of boundaries, a less fulfilling life, and less resilience. With the surge in information and discussion of such mental illnesses and personality disorders as bipolar disorder, narcissism, and borderline personality disorder, many women are seeking guidance on dealing with a mother who might have one of these conditions. This book is packed with practical advice, tools, and writing prompts that will help women gain clarity in regards to how they want to show up in their relationship with their mother.
