I figured out somewhere along the way — having been raised by a mother who just didn’t like me- that women project their self images onto their daughters, and if you don’t have a healthy relationship with yourself, it will come out on your daughter. She won’t be your daughter, she will be an extention of your ego, an extention of yourself. You won’t be responding to her, you will be responding to your past and your shame, guilt and trauma.
