  1. I have recently been exploring this with my therapist. Your comments today about self sabotage hit the mark for me. I realize that’s what I have been doing with trying to buy myself a new home. Between my ex-husband’s warped view around money(never enough) and my mother’s idea of not deserving good things and always settling for ‘good enough. ‘ I realize part of the reason is I find a problem with the home, that’s it’s not the right one, to keep myself from actually following through.
    I sat down and cried and felt like throwing up when it hit me. My body was so strongly rejecting this concept. I been feeling so stuck with where I am in my life and this helps give me some clarity. I hope I can make better decisions for me as I move forward with my new home search and with my new path.

    1. Hi Valerie,
      I’m glad this resonated for you and I’m holding space for you with so much compassion as you continue this journey and continue to work with your therapist ❤️

  2. Hello, is it possible for my husband to have some of the same things you describe as a result of a mother wound? do men have the same kinds of manifestations of this kind of wound as women? thank you! I love your podcast! I listen on you tube! all the best!
